Get fit by doing good

We’re a community of runners that combines getting fit with doing good in Camden.

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 provide facilities and training for locals to grow vegetables - every GoodGym run is different.

Map of Camden

Before GoodGym I always lost motivation to stick at running or the gym but now I run two or three times a week.

Hazel, GoodGym Barnet Runner

Running with Goodgym is great because I get fit, do good and get to hang with a load of awesome people.

Mark, GoodGym Islington runner

GoodGym combines doing good with running, which helps me forget I'm even exercising. It's great!

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'd like to ease your way into GoodGym with a session specially for those who are new to running or new to GoodGym, you might want to try a starter session.

Starter sessions will have a short run and an easier task helping out a community org.

Making a difference in Camden


I was very lonely. You've opened up a whole new world to me. Being a runner's coach is wonderful. They've given me the confidence to get out there again.
