Community mission

Litter pick in New Barnet - the railway series #1

Make improvements to the local environment


This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym runners at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive.

Alongside government social distancing and hygiene rules, you must:

  • Bring your own gloves suitable for the task
  • Not share tools at the task or clean tools between each use

For those that want to go to parkrun first, please join us at Oak Hill parkrun. If you don't want to run it - why not volunteer?

Directions to parkrun : On exiting Oakleigh Park Station turn right onto Alverstone Avenue, left down Cedar Avenue and follow the road down until you reach the park. When you reach the park turn right and walk towards the tennis courts and bowls club (about 1.3km in total).

Then we will head to New Barnet station, one stop from Oakleigh park, to litter pick a section of footpath alongside the Great Northern train route heading North. You're welcome to stay as long as you like or as long as you can!

Date and time

09:30 - 11:30 Saturday, 14th of December 2019

As you will make your own way to the task, feel free to walk or run as you wish.

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!
