The Gardens, Wasing Lane, Aldermaston, RG7 4NG
A 24 hour team relay event with festival vibes!

Calling all GoodGym runners!!

Are you ready to take on the clock and rack up as many miles as possible in 24 hours?

This year we are excited to confirm that GoodGym Windsor and Maidenhead are taking on this fantastic multi-award winning relay event as part of a team - and there are still spaces left!

It is set in the stunning grounds of Wasing Park in Reading.

You will get the full Endure24 experience, including unrivalled camaraderie from your fellow participants, fully-stocked pitstops laden with water stops and tireless support from the staff and medics who will help you every step of the way!

Team A (smaller team) is now complete and full with 6 members: Sophie, Jess, Amanda, Matt, Paul and Ankur

Team B (larger team of 10-12) is currently recruiting, so now is your chance to secure your place! Here’s how to enter:

  • Use this listing to sign up AND
  • Contact Kelley or Sophie who will send you an email confirming details of how to enter the GoodGym team using a specific password via the Endure 24 website (please do not enter via the website without doing this as otherwise you will not be linked to the correct team)
  • Once you’ve received the team specific information (link & password) you will need to pay your entry fee (approx £75pp) which includes race entry and car parking.

General info on the event can be found here: https://www.endure24.co.uk/events/reading/ (Please do not enter using this website without contacting Kelley or Sophie first for the team specific info)

Team B will ideally be around 10-12 people meaning each team member gets approx 2x 5 mile laps each across the 24 hour relay period.

If you are keen to enter but would prefer to run in a smaller team, please let us know as this would involve setting up a 3rd team but this is certainly a possibility if there’s similar interest from others.

A few things to remember:

  • Try to plan some training runs in the months leading up to the event - attending parkrun each week or GoodGym group runs will be a great way to start!
  • The event involves camping outdoors with your teammates and has a festival atmosphere
  • Amy has done it before and we have it on good authority that it’s going to be EPIC! ❤️

🏃🏻‍♀️Happy running!🏃

A chilly (but not hilly) 5km run!

Fri 21 Jan
Report written by Sophie Lack

Amy, Steve and Sophie braved the cold temps and set of for a 5km social road run around the Altwood, Pinkneys Green and All Saints areas. We quickly got warm and kept a good pace finishing in around 31m (moving time) with a Brucey Bonus sprint finish at the end. A great way to end the week and rack up some miles for the January challenge!

Volunteer at the Maidenhead Easter 10

Fri 15 Apr 09:00 am
Butchers Lane, White Waltham, Maidenhead, SL6 3SD
Help marshal at the GoodGym water station and cheer on runners

The Maidenhead Easter 10 is Maidenhead's local race. It is organised by Maidenhead Athletic Club (MAC), the route takes in lovely local scenery around West Maidenhead and White Waltham air field, and it is really well supported and attended by the local community...including GoodGym!

Held on Good Friday, this 10 mile race really is a cracking way to start the Easter weekend. We eggspect this year's event will be particularly eggcellent for a couple of reasons... Firstly it is being organised by superstar MAC member AND GoodGym W&M member Jen, and secondly GoodGym will have our very own water station!

At the water station we will be responsible for filling and handing out cups of water to runners, and giving them a big GoodGym cheer to spur them on. Our location will be near the 6th mile marker, so runners will be over half way, but might be in need of some GoodGym love to see them through to the finish. We will also be clearing up litter.

This event is a great opportunity for us to tell the people of Maidenhead about GoodGym, so wear your t-shirt with pride and make sure to bring the GoodGym party atmosphere!

The water station is on Butchers Lane, a 5-10 minute walk from White Waltham. You can find it at what3words location ///represent.leafing.bolts or by following this dropped pin. The road will be closed for most of the morning, but you'll be able to get through on foot or by bike.

Fancy running and being cheered on by your fellow GoodGymers instead? Sign up here if you want to run.

Our bags were getting pretty Bulkely

Wed 19 Jan
Report written by Amy Lovell

As the government announced the end of their Plan B, we were just embarking on ours. Our planned trip to the Lawns Nursery needed to be postponed due to staff shortages, so we diverted our energy into a torchlit litter pick instead.

A very warm welcome to Nic, who joined us for her first session, despite the chilly weather and last minute uncertainty around what we would be doing. It was also great to welcome Fiona back for her second session and to catch up with regulars Sophie, Jess, Georgeta and Steve, who had all traveled from Maidenhead.

Thanks to Councillors Karen Davies, Amy Tisi and Helen Price, who helped give us a Clewer where we might target our efforts. Litter picking a new area was a Spital order for navigationally challenged Amy, but thankfully Steve was on hand to show us round his old neighbourhood.

We warmed up with a little 'litter picker hurdles' course at the Pirate Park, then Hatch Laned a plan that involved running together down St Leonards Road to Bolton Avenue, from where we would pick our way back to the start. Sophie, Fiona, Jess and Amy headed back down St Leonards, whilst Georgeta, Steve and Nic Boltoned off to tackle some more streets. We met up again around the Express Offie and compared notes on our findings: lots of the usual bottles, cans, plastic wrappers, cigarette butts and face masks, but also the more unusual... a doll's bicycle seat, a pair of glasses, keys, socks and even cash.

By now our rubbish bags were getting pretty Bulkeley Ave, and we were a bit Clewer cHilly so we found public bins for most of the rubbish and headed towards home with a Springfield Ave in our step. Fiona hung onto her bag just in case we found any more rubbish on the way, and turns out it was Dedworth Road it! We had lots of fun scoring litter hoops in the moving target provided by Fiona's bag and meanwhile she got an epic arm workout.

Well done everyone! Keep an eye on the listings for when the run/walk to the Lawns is rescheduled. All upcoming events can be found here. See you soon!

Church grounds tidy up at St Luke's

Wed 2 Feb 18:45 pm
Homebase Car Park, Stafferton Way, Maidenhead, SL6 1AY
Clear debris and overgrown bushes to maintain this lovely green space

#WednesdayNightIsGoodGymNight

This week's group run or walk is to help St Luke's Anglican Church, which aims to serve as a welcoming hub in the community. Many of us know the church having visited for the Christmas Tree Festival in December.

Our session starts off at the well lit car park by Homebase on Stafferton Way. We'll have a quick briefing and warm up and then set off to the Church. Walkers will take the most direct 1.5km route, which follows York Stream and cuts through the town centre. Runners will take a more scenic route approximately 3km. All paces are welcome and we will always make sure we have backmarkers so that no one is left behind.

At the church we will be cutting back overgrown bushes and brambles and clearing litter to help keep the grounds tidy and safe. It will be very dark so please bring your head torch. Please also take care whilst clearing debris. Litter may include sharps and the vicar has also warned us that the resident peregrine falcons sometimes discard their half eaten lunch in this area! Thick gardening gloves are a must. Warm layers also recommended.

After blitzing the task we'll warm up with a quick fitness session and then head back to our start location. There we will stretch and see everyone off home safely.

Can't wait to see you there!
