Group runs

Run with a group to help community projects

We run in groups to local organisations that need our help completing tasks like shovelling earth for community gardens, planting trees or clearing derelict land, and run back all within 90 minutes.

How it works

Join a free group run near you and run to do good with people in your area. Group runs are led by qualified running coaches. New runners and people of all fitness levels are welcome and we never leave anyone behind. Just turn up at the start point or sign up to a run.

Step one


Meet the group at your area start point, drop your bag and run to a local community org that’s asked for our help.

Step two


Work hard with the group digging, lifting, scraping and clearing. for a good cause

Step three


Run back to our start point. The run back will give you a chance to push yourself with some intervals or a fitness session.

Step four

Stretch Off

Looking after you is also important to us. We have a certified trainer who leads the runs and makes sure you reach your goals

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.
