Ends

Runners against Rubbish and their awesome sidekick Roger the remote controlled wheelie bin are raiding a local park to defeat litter! 

Meet just outside the ShAFF Outpost (The Workstation) and head out for a short run to the Porter Brook Pocket Park on Matilda Street, just a few hundred metres away.  

Along the way we will pick up rubbish we find. Roger the remote-control wheelie bin will be there to collect all our rubbish, and once we've finished tidying up we will celebrate with a bit of a running skills session. We'll be hopping, skipping and jumping to hone our balance and strength. Once the park is looking spotless and we're all as springy as mountain goats we will head back to the Showroom.  

Who can come? This is a family-friendly event intended for all ages, so we'd love to see you there! Parents will need to join their children, and we suggest a minimum age of 4. If your child is desperate to attend but you can't come along then get in touch with us on runnersagainstrubbish@gmail.com and we'll see if there's anything we can do, but this is intended to be an event for all ages so we'd love to see you all there. Note that tickets are required for children only - a child's ticket entitles them to bring as many adults as they like! 

What's the route? The total distance will be 2km, though if you'd rather walk you are welcome to meet us in the park.  

How many tickets should I book? Note that tickets are required for children only - a child's ticket entitles them to bring as many adults as they like! Book your children's places through the link below. Where will we meet? Meet just outside the ShAFF Outpost (The Workstation)  

What to bring: A pair of gloves and clothes and shoes you can run in. Bin bags will be provided by RAR. 

We look forward to seeing you there - let's show the world that activism isn't difficult or scary, it's about groups of good people going and doing good stuff! 

Don't forget to plan your family's ShAFF weekend with our itinerary for young adventurers! The ShAFF Rebel Raids - a series of high energy environmental actions on the streets of Sheffield - have been made possible by the wonderful folk at Alpkit, and are part of our Acts of Rebellion festival itinerary.
