During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!


"Always Moving Forward: Hardmoors 50"

‘Always Moving Forward’ follows the journey of three runners as they take on the infamous challenge of the Hardmoors 50. A 50 mile ultra marathon taking place in the North York Moors National Park. Exploring the unique culture surrounding the race series, the beauty of the trail and the different reasons motivating people to take on feats of Ultra endurance.

"Through The Pain - Shelli Gordon's Epic Spine Adventure"

Shelli Gordon owns the running shop 'Lets Run' in North Yorkshire which she set up with her partner Tony in 2017. Tony very sadly and with no warning, took his own life in 2018. This is Shelli’s story of how she ran the 268 Spine Race in the depths of water along the length of the Pennines in Tony Holland’s memory. Not only did Shelli complete the Spine but she has also raised over £30,000 for CALM in the process. Now more than ever, we all need to spread the word that its ok to not be ok and to not only get more men talking but anyone is suffering and needs some help.
