Community mission

Mini Mermaids Running Club & Highbury Fields parkrun- Be a Mermaid Mama!

Encourage and support the Mini Mermaids to complete their first 5km challenge!



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.

Goodgym have been warmly invited to contribute towards the Mini Mermaids Running Club parkrun takeover at Highbury Fields!

"Mini Mermaids stand for self-worth, value and movement. ​ We change the lives of girls and young women by shifting their internal experience and the way they interact with the world around them through innovative character driven curriculum.

Mini Mermaids train for a local 5K challenge through a structured 8 week programme where the focus is not on how fast the girls are, but on helping them find their happy pace and develop a life long love of movement and activity."

We are looking for female Goodgym runners to run with a Mini Mermaid, and to offer support during their 5km challenge!

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!
