Bethan Critchley has run a race with GoodGym for the first time. Thu 19 May 2022

Bethan has done their first race with GoodGym. Performing on the day is a lot of pressure; Bethan's dealt with the nerves and turned up on the day to make it happen.

Sat 28 May 08:45 am
Tooting Common, Doctor Johnson Avenue, London, SW16 1RT
A 5k run & to experience a different Parkrun each month with other GoodGymers

Every last Saturday of the month, let's meet-up/takeover a different parkrun in South London, this is the schedule I propose throughout the year:

  • January 29th - Burgess Park
  • February 26th – Brockwell
  • March 26th – Southwark
  • April 30th - Hilly Fields
  • May 28th – Tooting
  • June 25th - Crystal Palace
  • July 30th - Peckham Rye
  • August 27th – Beckenham
  • September 24th – Dulwich
  • October 29th – Clapham
  • November 26th – Catford
  • December 17th - Bushy

Meet at the start line 10-15 minutes before, run the Parkrun at your own pace and those who finish first can cheer on the rest! After everyone has completed their 5k run and we get that all important group photo, for those who want to stay on, we'll get a hot beverage (whatever is your poison).

What are parkruns?

Parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around the world. Saturday morning events are 5k and take place in parks and open spaces. You can run, walk or volunteer at parkruns. You can even take your dog (if you have one) along! If you have never run a parkrun before, they are a great way to get into running in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Remember, it's FREE, but you can register here to keep a profile (number of parkruns you do, times, etc.).

Back to our roots

Wed 18 May
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

To kick off last night's session we gave Jonathan a massive cheer for reasons which will for now remain under wraps, but are definitely well deserved! In fact, it was over to Jonathan for the evening as he continued his run leader training by taking last night's session and kicking off with an excellent warm up featuring the wonderfully named Frankensteins.

With the threat of thunderstorms ahead we set off at a good lick towards Gunnersbury Park for our bramble bashing task, arriving to find masses of secateurs, rakes and spades.

As always it was a bit of an expedition to find the right spot but with Chris and Michelle leading us expertly to the right spot accompanied by the 'crying wheelbarrow', we quickly found the tonne bags marking out our area for the night.

We got stuck in trying to pull out some very stubborn brambles, and soon spotted the Path to Nowhere we had dug one very wet, windy and muddy night. We had yet to see it in the light of day so I popped across and was delighted to see it was looking brilliant - check out the photo!

After a good session derooting as many brambles as possible, we downed tools and made it back to our starting point without so much as a single drop of rain. After a nice cool down and stretch it was another Wednesday night very well done.

Don't forget about this fun community mission coming up very soon, and this Saturday GoodGym Lambeth are meeting at Clapham Common parkrun - enjoy the rest of your week GoodGym!

They see me (brioche) rollin', they hatin'

Another Wednesday call at Mrs M's, and another trip out with her shopping trolley to pick up the weekly groceries. The trolley certainly turns a few heads when they see a young person wheeling it along... I'm going to assume that onlookers are just jealous 😉.

This week was short and sweet; Mrs M is still in quite a bit of pain with her knee as she begins to recover from her surgery, and so we didn't chat for long. Tesco had everything she desired, therefore I was back with her in no time at all. Mrs M handed me a couple of red bean buns as a thank you, and I walked back down to work in the lovely afternoon sun. Hopefully this beautiful weather sticks around for a little while! ☀️

You know the old saying: When it rains it.... jams the lawnmower

Sun 15 May
Report written by Jonathan

You would never have guessed from the glorious weather or Saturday just how shocking Sunday's weather was.

Four runners braved the rain and the moistness to assist with the tidy up of Lloris gardens, digging up a sizeable amount of stinging nettles and Green alkanet.

We also gave the lawns a good shave, stopping every so often to unclog the lawn mower from the damp grass.

Many thanks to everyone who came out! We got a lovely coffee (+ orange juice) at Gail's afterwards before all going our seperate ways to be slightly less damp.
