She'll give you a quick rundown of what's what and then give you a little trolley to take along to: M&S Edgware Road, 258 Edgware Rd, London W2 1DU Pick up what the shop is donating to Life After Hummus and then role on back to the warehouse.

Adventure Film Watch Party: "Run For Your Life: The New York Marathon"

Thu 25 Feb 19:30 pm
The Arsenal Community Hub, 56 Benwell Road, London, N7 7BA
Running and adventure inspiration during lockdown!

During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!


"Run For Your Life: The New York Marathon"

Blending archival and contemporary footage with recollections from past champions, recreational participants, volunteers and local politicians, this documentary looks at the life and passion of Fred Lebow, founder of the New York City Marathon.

From extremely humble beginnings -- in 1970, less than 100 people participated in the inaugural 26.2 mile race through the five boroughs -- the race evolves into a global happening, drawing competitors and spectators from all over the world.

"Without one eccentric first-generation Jewish immigrant from Transylvania, the New York City Marathon simply wouldn't exist. Ehrlich's fun, loving, and inspirational tribute to the late Fred Lebow shows how one man's imagination, determination, and love for running created one of the world's most popular sporting events."- Tribeca Film Festival

(Film Duration: 1 hour 35 minutes)

Report written by Cat Virden

We met up at Life After Hummus and set of with our wheely basket up Camden Town to Tescos.

It was a lovely sunny day - perfect for a chat and a bit of light exercise.

Tescos offered two bags of baked goods - i'm sure they went down a treat!!
