Adventure Film Watch Party: The Porter- The Untold Story at Everest

Thu 21 Jan 19:30 pm
The Arsenal Community Hub, 56 Benwell Road, London, N7 7BA
Running and adventure inspiration during lockdown!

During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!

The Porter- The Untold Story at Everest

A young privileged American attempts to make history at Everest by becoming a Himalaya Porter. But in his journey to succeed, experiences a harrowing reality instead. This is an inside look at the darker side of Everest. At the strength, pride and pain of those whose support it. And at just how hard it is for a naive foreigner to attempt the same.

All is(n't) quiet on New Year's Day

Fri 1 Jan
Report written by Ian Bown

Happy New Year to GoodGymers everywhere!

Lots of Colchester GoodGymers got out on a very cold ❄ New Year's Day for a run or a walk.

Anna joined us for her first session with GoodGym Colchester. A very warm welcome Anna from all of us.

We were also joined by Melanie and Darren from GoodGym Bristol, lovely to have you both with us.

Well done to everyone for getting out of the door on New Year's Day.

Let's hope that in the year ahead we can be together again and continue do some good.

As ever Ian

New Years Day (Not) Park Run From Wherever You Are

Fri 1 Jan 06:00 am
Leisure World Colchester, Cowdray Avenue, Colchester, CO1 1YH
A fine way to start 2021

Normally there are loads of parkrun's on New Years Day, but as its far from normal at the moment , I thought it would be good to put on a virtual (not) parkrun for Colchester GoodGym.

Simply run or walk 5km between 6 am and 12 noon on January 1st to start the year off on a high.

Of course we,sadly, can't all run together so please just run from wherever you are on the 1st January ,please ignore the location in the description.

Please take a selfie and give me a few details of your run or walk and send it to me via the WhatsApp group and I'll include them in the report.

I've 'borrowed' this idea from Leeds GoodGym with the full approval of Gemma Bridge the Leeds Area Activator .

Any queries please let me know.

As ever Ian
