GoodGym Norwich have teamed up with the Fine City Neighbours project and we have 20,000 postcards that need delivering to people's homes throughout January and February!
These tasks will take place Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
You'll collect postcards from Hitch or a Task Force member outside The Forum anytime between 5.30-6.30pm, where you'll be allocated a street or number of streets from our list and then run/walk/cycle to that location to deliver postcards through people's letterboxes.
There should be no need to make contact with people in their homes, but if someone does open their door while you are making a delivery, remember to maintain a 2m distance while speaking with them.
This task should be done individually, with a member of your household or in pairs if you wish to work with someone outside your household, while keeping 2m apart as per government advice.
Bring a head torch and possibly other running light equipment if you have them. Also wear bright reflective clothing.
Norwich GoodGym hosted the first GoodGym (not)parkrun, GoodGym Stockport were the hosts for the second week of the national GoodGym (not)parkrun on Saturday 16th.
Colchester GoodGym will be the host for week 3 on Saturday 23rd January.
GoodGym (not)parkrun is being hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved in the January Challenge 2021, improve your fitness and keep that parkrun spirit going.
You can run or walk, whatever you prefer, from wherever you are in the country.
Everyone is very welcome to join!
Please remember to follow all Covid rules and guidelines on your run, keep safe, be socially-distanced and keep moving!
Just relish being out there.
You can complete your 5K any time on Saturday and submit your time, by midnight on Saturday, using the form.
Thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who will put the results together for our (not) parkrun events. To let her know your email address and other useful information, there's a one-off registration form to complete. You can find this here.
The first GoodGym (not)parkrun saw an amazing 76 GoodGym runners across the UK take part. Hopefully that total was broken on week 2.
If you'd like a photo to be included in the run report, please take a selfie of yourself or the scenery on the route and send it to me. My WhatsApp is 07890914806. As ever Ian
Elizabeth and I continued on with the covid response, delivering postcards for #finecityneighbours all around the old hospital site 🏥 Thanks Hitch for kindly bringing us the bundles to the forum. We even caught some #knapple art on the way back. #goodinthehood ❤️
