GoodGym Race Team
The Race Team exists for three purposes
- To have adventures and races together
- To offer UK Athletics affiliation
- To be a Team #RedThunder
GoodGym Race Team is all about challenging yourself personally – whether it's your first 5k or your 50th marathon, every year we will choose six races to stretch runners of any and every level! GoodGym Race Team thrives on its members' passion for challenge, so wherever you are in your journey, we would be delighted to have you as part of the team. Whether it’s bearing down on Bournemouth running festival, racing steam trains and horses in Wales (not at the same time!) or enjoying the seafront at the Worthing Half Marathon , we've already started putting GoodGym racers on the map. And we've had an amazing time doing it.

From Jan each year UKA often give the last 3 months for free to new joiners.
The Race Team has members from all the areas of GoodGym from Norwich, to Brighton, Bristol and York. We would love to grow this family and we support each other as much as we can sharing successes, race tips and painful training miles. This is through FaceBook, Twitter and cheering really loud!
