Community mission

Mighty Mighty Market Road Gardens

A great post-parkrun gardening and fixing up task near Caledonian Road


Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.

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

Octopus Communities and Market Road Gardens have asked Goodgym to come back to help with the renovation of their community gardens (and the lovely entrance to Lumpy Adventure Playground).

GG Islington have been regularly working with volunteer coordinator Frannie to convert the space into a lovely garden for Spring, and we are very proud of the work we have done so far.

Some of us are planning on running and volunteering at Highbury Fields parkrun with Mini Mermaids first, and doubling deeds! (Link TBC)

Date and time

11:30 - 14:30 Saturday, 28th of March 2020

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

Ideal for beginners

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!
