I run so I can eat more cake.
There is a lot of options for this run depending on how people are feeling on the day. We'll meet in the amphitheatre behind the tearooms (what3words///images.awake.shot) and can then run the parkrun route, which is 2 laps, or do a loop that incorporates some more of the trails. So the route will be between 5 and 8km. Please walk or cycle if you can, but there is also plenty of free parking along the road near the running track.
All are welcome to join this trail run which follows the River Aire and canal. It should be dry for most of the route, but parts of it can become muddy after rainfall.
It's a looped run and will start and finish at Bramley Falls. Please cycle or walk if possible, however there is lots of parking on Pollard lane. Meet near the entrance to the rugby pitch. (what3words ///broke.lower.almost)
The route is around 6 km in total with optional extra loop / explore around Bramley falls! You can view the route here: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/57058579 .
Please note the postcode is for Bramley falls and not for Pollard Lane!
7 members of GoodGym Leeds returned to Farsley Rehoboth Cemetery to help the regular volunteers clear more of the overgrown vegetation and trees. We started by chopping up and moving large piles of sticks and wood that had been cleared from trees at one end of the graveyard to a bonfire at the other end. Nicky, one of the regular volunteers and designated chief fire maker, was feeding the wood to the fire almost as quickly as we could get it to her. As we made our way up and down the path carrying comically large sticks, Suzie observed that we looked "like the ants in bug's Life carrying food back to the colony". Whilst some of us carried on, hoping that a giant locust wasn't going to squash us, some of the group were assigned the very important job of measuring bricks. Using a very technical measuring method (a stick that was about the right length) they identified which bricks were suitable for use in the wall being built at the back of the cemetery. Once we'd cleared a large area, where a house had once been built and then moved brick by brick somewhere else, we all said goodbye and headed off home, excited to come back and help again soon.
