Run or walk to paint for the Windsor Horse Rangers

Tue 24 Aug 18:45 pm
Holyport War Memorial Hall, Moneyrow Green, Holyport, Maidenhead, SL6 2NA

Please note that this group run has been cancelled.

Give the exterior of the classrooms some much needed TLC

The Windsor Horse Rangers is a charity, which aims to give children access to ponies and to educate them about all aspects of riding and horse care. The charity has reached out to GoodGym for help sprucing up the outside of their classrooms with a lick of paint. This is a big task so get your friends to sign up too!

Our plan for the evening is to meet at Holyport Memorial Hall for a a quick warm up and briefing. We will then run or walk 3km to the Windsor Horse Rangers site on Forest Green Road. Some of the route is on quiet, rural trails, but there is a short stretch on the road where we will need to go single file and be aware of traffic. It is up to you whether you run or walk. All paces are welcome and we will always have a back marker to make sure no one is left on their own.

When we reach our destination we will get stuck into our task painting the outside of one of the classrooms. If you're anything like Amy (or working near Amy) you're likely to come away with paint on your clothes so don't wear anything too precious! There will be the opportunity to work up a ladder. Please take care and only do this if you feel it is safe.

Around 8pm we will head back to our start location on foot. Please do bring a head torch or run light so we can be seen on the road as the sun goes down.

We will finish with a few strength exercises, some lovely stretches and a brainstorm to see who can come up with the best horse puns for the run report...

Barking Up The Wrong Tree

Wed 30 Jun
Report written by Lucy Hill

We met in the sunshine on a Wednesday eve, on Chiswick’s Staveley Road, Best known for it’s cherry trees, which blossom by the load.

Our task tonight was to weed and tidy around each cherry tree, The younger ones had wood chip protection, but the elders needed TLC.

We got to work in twos and threes, with gloves and bags and hoes, Working on each side of the road, getting through the rows.

Klama was there with Maxxie her dog, and Analiese from H&F, Chi turned up on his bike half way through, surprising Ishan and Beth.

We’d done quite well, cleared lots of weeds, when Remy called it a day, So we tidied up our bags and bins, then headed back to the garage way.

We finished the task with Beth’s vegan cake, much to everyone’s delight, Filled with treats and a good deed, we wished each other a good night.

Pick a chair any chair!!

Sat 26 Jun
Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner

6 runners from near and far met to litter pick at Boyn Hill in the sunshine. Everyone set off into the surrounding woodland where a team ventured into the undergrowth in search of litter. Strange hideouts, steep hills and bramble covered hedges led to discoveries of three old and broken fishing chairs in covered hide outs.

Everyone then made it out and regrouped before finishing off walking the surrounding paths filling two bags of rubbish leaving a nice clean open space for the families enjoying the sun. No hill session today, saving the legs for tomorrow's efforts.

Locals walking by, drivers tooting and families in the park thanked us all.
