From hanging curtains for Mr H because he can't manage it on his own, to shovelling a tonne of compost for the Food Growers Group so they can grow vegetables - every GoodGym run is different.
we're running to help all over Birmingham
From Cannon Hill Park to Hockley we run the streets helping those most in need. We’re always up for welcoming new runners, so if you’re in the area come and join in.

Meet the Birmingham Taskforce
The Taskforce supports the operation of GoodGym in Birmingham. They manage social media accounts, support on runs, find tasks, support new runners and organise additional events.
Before GoodGym I always lost motivation to stick at running or the gym but now I run two or three times a week.
Running with GoodGym is great because I get fit, do good and get to hang with a load of awesome people.
The World's most innovative Aging projects.
GoodGym offers an imaginative alternative to conventional gyms, tapping into the human potential of local communities.
Why burn energy in the gym when you could harness that effort to spruce up public spaces, or visit lonely pensioners?
New to running?
Many people who don't run, are worried about running or haven't run for ages start running with GoodGym every week on our group runs.
If you can run for 15 minutes without stopping then you're fit enough to join us on a group run - no one gets left behind.
If you're still working up to that you can sign up to help older people on one-off tasks or a regular visit.
