We did it - Goodgym’s 50th group is officially launched!

31 runners ran 5km to Newlands Bishop Farm as part of the GoodGym Solihull launch. At the farm we met Dan, who showed us around and gave us an insight into the work they do, providing jobs for adults with learning difficulties and enabling them to gain new skills. We’ll be back in the summer months to help them out with digging, painting, gardening and much more!

Runners also took part in two mini fitness sessions, with high intensity training, reps and group activities. Everyone gave it their all and completed the session still smiling.

We then ran back to our start location, the Royal British Legion Club, where we cooled down with some stretches.

Thank you so much for attending and giving it your all, with the run, the fitness sessions and meeting new people. It was great to chat to lots of you and get the GoodGym ball rolling in Solihull!

It would be great to see you next week in Tudor Grange Park for our litter pick as part of the Great British Spring Clean.
