Group run

Giving out fruit to the homeless and SIFA Fireside cards

Many homeless people will benefit from some good nutrition from a friendly face



Description

Welcome to GoodGym Birmingham! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

We will be running around the city centre giving out bananas and oranges to the homeless. Please bring a few bananas or oranges. After the task we will do a circuit session in St Paul's square.

The Run/walk:

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

18:00 - 19:45 Tuesday, 21st of January 2020
Options are available to run between 4km 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.

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 1000 Trades, and 1000 Trades and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
