Who this task will support
Gleadless Valley Litter Pickers
We clear litter and fly-tipping, mostly from woods and greenspaces in the Gleadless Valley area


We will be helping Gleadless Valley Litter Pickers clear up of litter from path edges and cut back vegetation to keep paths clear for users.

Risks It is possible that there may be hazardous waste (such as needles, broken glass) in the area. A risk assessment will be done beforehand and the Good Gym team will be alerted to any risks at the start of the task so they can be avoided.

Organiser Iren will let the group know where bags of litter should be left and will arrange collection by the council afterwards

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 Showroom Cinema, and Showroom Cinema and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
