Lewisham

Group run

Sort and pack at the Big Red Box!

Give people hope at Christmas



Description

Welcome to GoodGym Lewisham!

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday to get active and do a physical task, to help the charities and community organisations in our area.

The Task:

This a big one! Our now annual visit to the Big Red Box is a popular task, where we work hard to sort through donated food, build boxes and fill them with specific items, to be shared with local families and individuals in need at Christmas.

This is a task where you really see the impact your volunteering can have - read more about this incredible project here.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is sometimes possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

The Lowdown:

We meet at Glass Mill Leisure Centre at 6.45pm, a short walk from Lewisham Station. We have access to changing rooms and lockers - please bring a £1 coin or padlock if you want to use these. We're a friendly group, so look out for the red t-shirts and don't be shy!

Date and time

6:45pm - 8:30pm Monday, 2nd of December 2019
Options are available to run between 5km and 5km 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 Glass Mill Leisure Centre, and Glass Mill Leisure Centre and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.

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!
