Prickle Treat

Mon 25 Oct
Report written by Anji Andrews

Standing ovation for this Halloween Week Pun by Paul!

This is the first group run we've had where everyone has walked and it was a great night to do so. Check out Charlotte's amazing photo of Newcastle Eagles Arena when we arrived!

It was our monthly visit to Newcastle Eagles tonight where we lend a hand to clear sections of their community gardens in the car park. It was brilliant to have Richard back for the first time since the foodbank community missions last summer. He told us his tales of parkrunning in Finland and doing two marathons in the same amount of weeks. Kudos.

We spent our time tonight weeding and clearing two sections of the car park and the before and after photos show what a difference we can make in a short space of time. Despite Paul getting dramatically prickled along the back of his leg, and Charlotte and Aimee falling down THE SAME step, we had a fantastic night.

Our next group run is a Saturday special, join us for a gardening task on Saturday 6th with Launchpad Veterans.

We “picked” a good night for it

Mon 11 Oct
Report written by Anji Andrews

The Quayside really showed its beauty off tonight for our Group Run! As a group of kayakers took to the Tyne for a night cruise (yes, really!) we met armed with bags and litter picks on a perfect autumn night.

We met Sara for the very first time as she came to give GoodGym a go- go and give her a big cheer! Aimee had a very impressive warm up run to the start area, while Neil took it easy ahead of the Yorkshire marathon this weekend and Charlotte and I nursed various injuries and walked.

It was good to see a few usual litter hot spots were looking a little clearer, but venturing to the road side we found a few untidy areas to clear up in no time at all. Four bags were filled pretty quickly, with the weirdest item of the night going to Aimee who found a Halloween web decoration complete with fake spider! Neil bagged an extra good deed, giving people directions to Newcastle arena.

It was a tame kind of fitness session with multiple games of Rock Paper Scissors complete with short exercises at the end of each round.

A super start to the week and a nice feeling to be back after my knee surgery!

Coffee, cake and a catch up at the Cycle Hub

Sun 24 Oct 10:00 am
The Cycle Hub, Quayside, Newcastle, NE6 1BU
Come along and enjoy having a relaxed catch up over a cuppa and cake

This is open to absolutely EVERYONE whether you've just joined recently or simply haven't been for ages.

GoodGym Newcastle launched in April 2018 and is almost 4 years old which is brilliant. During that time we have completed an amazing 3,628 good deeds! (including 44 missions to help older people, 396 group runs/community missions and 332 coach visits)

So come along and enjoy a friendly relaxed catch up over coffee (or tea/juice!) A brilliant opportunity to discover what GoodGym Newcastle is all about, meet new friends or just catch up with others you haven't seen for a while.

This is also a great opportunity to invite others (family/friends) to sign up for the first time and chat to others about their experiences with GoodGym.

We will just meet outside (fingers crossed for good weather) and if there is enough interest, I will see if I can reserve tables/a space for us.

Feel free to pop along and drop by, or stay as long as you like!

No fitness involved at all (unusual I know!) but feel free to meet up beforehand for a walk, run or cycle!

(The car park at the Cycle Hub is free and a great place to meet but may be busy on a Sunday due to the Quayside Market)
