Chief Cook and Bottle Washer

Wed 19 Jan
Report written by Gill

Made our way individually to the Transitions meeting to support this fabulous group of young people. Jack is becoming a great head chef, helping one group as they prepared a tasty chicken curry and rice while the rest were learning some key life skills. And after our meal it was my turn to assist with the washing up before running home.

Walk/Run/Cycle to Games and Cooking with TransitionsUK

The Salvation Army, 1 Vicarage St, Luton, LU1 3HZ
Helping learning impaired young people build their independence

This mission will help Nicole from TransitionsUK with their Aspire project, which helps young people with mild/moderate learning disabilities develop their independence with the aim that they can successfully live independently.

We will be joining their friendly evening social session at the Salvation Army hall to meet the young people for a chat, enjoy some games in the hall, and help out with cooking dinner for the group (You can eat it too!!).

Why not join us for the Group Run afterwards too?

Underpass Overpass Wombling Free

Wed 12 Jan
Report written by David Mansfield

We weren't in Wimbledon but we were doing our best Womble impression as we collected the things the everyday folks leave behind!

The footpaths and bushes on the roundabout by the university had collected a lot of rubbish around the riverside. Cans, bottles, boots, extractor fans, half a jar of mayonnaise all went in our bags.

We also gave the underpasses and paths a sweep to remove the wet mushy leaves, and managed to pull an old trolley out of the river too!

Enjoying the Runshine

Sun 9 Jan
Report written by David Mansfield

After meeting in Manor Road Park for a warm-up on the basketball court, Dani, Gill, Martin and David set off on a 10km loop in the warming winter sunshine. All agreed it was worth getting up early for!

Wednesday Evening Group Run

Wed 12 Jan 18:45 pm
Luton centre, Luton, LU1 2SW
Keeping Luton Tidy

Following last week's massive litter pick we're coming back for another go at a different messy spot in the middle of town.

We'll run a loop to add some distance to the evening but there will be a shortcut for anyone who wants to avoid the full distance. Also perfectly walkable if that's more you!

Once the litter is bagged we will head into Manor Road Park for a short while for a quick musical workout before heading back to the starting point.

Sunday Long Run - Wigmore Loop

Sun 9 Jan 09:00 am
Luton centre, Luton, LU1 2SW
Stretching your legs a bit further

We regularly do around 5km distances on GG runs but it's good to go a bit further sometimes and build confidence in longer distance running. We'll start with a gentle 10k and see how we do.

We'll meet in Manor Park for a proper warm up and then head up Crawley Green Road to Wigmore, and a lovely scenic loop around the area before heading back to Manor Road Park and a nice cool-down stretch.

If you're coming from afar there's free parking on Manor Road on Sundays but try and walk/jog/bike/bus there if you can.

Take me home, Hitchin Road…

Wed 17 Nov
Report written by Luton runner

Joining Kevin and Phyl from ABCD in Luton, three of us helped to clear a neglected green space of weeds, brambles and litter (including a surprise musical find). Good hard work, the smell from several of Luton’s finest takeaways just across the road was in no way distracting, oh no. Great to chat with some appreciative passers by too! All cleared in no time. As the great man himself sang, all we needed was a rake and a hoe and an inch of fertile ground…

Street Clean-Up with ABCD Luton

Wed 17 Nov 19:00 pm
Turner's Knoll, Hitchin Road, between Hart Hill Lane and Turners Road S., Luton, LU2 7SL
Keeping Luton Tidy

Your Area Activator is away for this week's Group run so you'll be on your own, but I've arranged a task with some familiar faces to keep you going.

You'll be finishing off a job we started a few weeks ago, where we pulled up the weeds at the top of Hitchin Road with Kevin and Phyl from ABCD Luton. One more effort and it'll all be clean and tidy!

If you fancy running up there from town, be my guest and meet in St. George's Square as usual. Try out the option below to set a meeting point or join someone who has already set one.

Alternatively you can make your own way there and meet everyone else at the task.
