Community mission

Volunteer at Handsworth Children’s Triathlon Holiday Camp

Keeping children fit and fed this Christmas holidays


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

You'll be helping keep local children fit and fed this Christmas holidays and #changinglivesthroughtriathlon

Help us to prepare a healthy, nutritious breakfast or lunch for the children attending the camp to enjoy. All food and equipment will be provided. Food hygiene and allergen support will be provided by our team. If you'd like to, stay and help deliver fun swim. bike and run activities, fully supported by our friendly coaches!

This is a fun, free, inclusive 4-day holiday camp for children in Handsworth. Children will enjoy swim, bike and run activities, alongside a healthy breakfast and lunch, and learn about making healthy food choices. The aim of this free holiday camp is to tackle holiday hunger this Christmas by reaching children, of all backgrounds, whose families may struggle to meet the extra pressure of missing free school meals during the school holidays. It is being delivered by British Triathlon, in partnership with the Triathlon Trust, Central England Co-Operative and Sport Birmingham.

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!
