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
Mark

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
Judy

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 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.

How much does it cost?

GoodGym is free. Most of us make a monthly donation of £9.95 to help cover the cost of running our charity, but no one has to.

Am I fit enough?

There's a GoodGym run that's right for everyone - if you can run for 15 minutes come along on any run. If you think you can't or you're worried come to a starter session.

What should I bring?

All you need is a pair of shoes you can run in - just don't wear your snazziest gear. You can store your bags at the start point, and tools will be provided if necessary.
