Community mission

#GGSuperSaturday Mile End Parkrun Takeover

Volunteering at the Parkrun to help more people get active!



Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

It’s #GGSuperSaturday celebrating 10 years of doing Good and getting fit and Tower Hamlets are getting down to our local favourite Parkrun at Mile End where we’re going to fill in the blanks on the volunteering roster and if we get enough GoodGymers signing up maybe we could even get some pacers out on the go running as well!

It would be great to make this our community party as well, so if you could bring some cupcakes/flapjacks or whatever you fancy we can celebrate our GoodGym 10th birthday (and also I hear it will be one of our own’s 100th Parkrun we can celebrate with her as well!)

Lastly as an extra to boost our feel good we could potentially do a little litter pick afterwards to make Mile End Park look a little nicer if there’s rubbish about, I know some hate and some love it, but it’s always lovely to see that difference!

Keep your #GGSuperSaturday free and get this in your diary! Look forward to seeing you there!!!

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
