Camden

Group run

We're going back to Alara as well as making beds for the homeless at C4WS

Outdoor task (with a thank you box of granola) or a wonderful (and warm) indoor task?



Description

Welcome to GoodGym Camden! 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.

GoodGym Camden is the best way to get fit in North London. We meet at 6.45pm, there's a short intro and then we're off on the run just gone 7pm.

This week we will be splitting the group:

  • We'll run up to the wonderful people at the C4WS Homeless Project; we'll be making their 15 beds for the night so that homeless people from the area can come and get a good's night sleep out of the cold.

  • A bigger group of us will be running to Alex and Alara Wholefoods for the first time this decade (Has using that in conversation gotten old now, or am I still ok?) to help spread some manure, sort out the permaculture garden and do some weeding.

We meet at The St Pancras & Somers Town Living Centre, on the other side of the building from the main entrance to the Crick Institute. Look out for the red t-shirts!

There is somewhere safe to leave your bags and toilets are available.

We welcome all abilities but ask that you are able to run for at least 15 minutes, don't worry though we keep together as a group and no-one is ever left behind! Come along and join us.

Gonna be a good one - I'm looking forward to it!

Ben - Camden Trainer

Date and time

18:45 - 20:30 Wednesday, 29th of January 2020
Options are available to run between 3km and 4km 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.

Trainer for GoodGym Camden. Running is one way to get those endorphins going! Love a squidgy, slightly under-baked triple chocolate brownie.

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 The St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre, and The St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
