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.
Meet the group at your area start point, drop your bag and run to a local community org that’s asked for our help.
Work hard with the group digging, lifting, scraping and clearing. for a good cause
Run back to our start point. The run back will give you a chance to push yourself with some intervals or a fitness session.
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.
How to get involved
Just sign up to your local group run for free to get involved or if you’re keen to take the plunge and get involved on a regular basis you can become a member.

All aspects of GoodGym are free to participate in. Most Goodgym members donate an optional £9.95 a month which go to the GoodGym Charity to help us reach more older people. We’ll ask you if you’d like to donate when you join.
The trainers who lead our runs are the best in the business. When you come on a GoodGym group run you’ll be getting lead by a trainer. Our members get top quality fitness and running support from their trainer.
