The Taskforce supports the operation of GoodGym in York. 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.

Hazel, GoodGym Runner

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

Mark, GoodGym 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.
