Group run

helping the park keeper

get fit and help the community environment



Description

The park was gifted by 'Inky ' Stephens for the people of finchley and is a wonderful resource for local people. It is held in trust and relies on volunteers. We will assist the gardener in various activities as required by the season and conditions.

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

Date and time

18:45 - 20:30 Tuesday, 21st of January 2020
Options are available to run between 5km and 6km in total

Remember that we run to and from the task, so you'll only be running for half this distance in one go.

This is a standard GoodGym group run. If you can't run for more than 15mins without stopping or you're worried about any aspect of the session, contact us or see if there's a starter session coming up in your area.

There's space to change and leave bags and toilets. We're not planning to do anything purposefully dangerous, but GoodGym takes no responsibility for your safety during group runs, you participate at your own risk. Participants accept full responsibility for items stored at Phoenix Cinema, and Phoenix Cinema and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
