Following the sell-out event in 2020, this year’s event is sure to be even bigger, with all profits from it continuing to support LGTBQ+ organisations.
You just have to complete a run or walk of any distance of your choice during Pride Month (between 1 June – 30 June). A bespoke, colourful medal will be posted to each entrant (the medal is incredible!).
Individual or Team Entry: You can enter individually or a GoodGym Area can enter a team of 30, where each person can represent a day of June. We’ll post you 30 medals + a personalised collage print of your colourful photos if you send them to us. Please note we only require details of one person when entering a team. Several GoodGym areas took part in 2020.
Entry Fee: Individual: £10.00 + booking fee. Team: £300 + booking fee.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be part of the GoodGym Norwich team (I'll enter the team and people can pay me via PayPal).
GoodGym Norwich have teamed up with the Fine City Neighbours project and we have 20,000 postcards that need delivering to people's homes.
These tasks will take place Monday and Wednesday evenings and we are now focusing on the Central Norwich area.
You'll collect postcards from Hitch or a Task Force member outside The Forum anytime between 5.30-6pm, 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.
It shouldn't take no more than 1 hour from the time you set off to deliver the postcards allocated to you. Once you've delivered them you can go straight home, you don't need to return to The Forum.
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 within the rule of 6, while keeping 2m apart as per government advice. You'll be grouped upon arrival at The Forum.
We recommend you wear some form of high-vis clothing.
It was great to see a couple of faces I hadn’t seen for several months and also a big welcome to Matt who was taking part in his first GoodGym good deed.
We split into three groups, with a set of streets allocated to each group. Stephen and Matt had the longest route, myself and Rory did the shortest one (followed by fish and chips) and Elizabeth, Penny, Mark, Andy and Liz did the other route.
It was a lovely sunny evening and group to be outside.
We made big in roads this evening and at getting there with the postcards.
A full roast chicken was our main course today, with apple strudel and custard for dessert. Countdown begins to re opening on June 7th, all being well. Last week the Salvation Army charity shop opened, and pleased to say everyday was VERY busy. Much needs funds were boosted, plus the shoppers were please to see other people
at 8:30, Elizabeth and Rebecca met up for the volunteers briefing on a beautiful sunny morning at Lea Bridge park.
We were both on Marshall Duty so we donned hi vis and lanyards, and then headed down the hill for marshall points 3 and 4.
We cheered on 38 children as they ran, walked or skipped their way around the 2 km course.
The last two children were struggling a little so we dragged them up the hill with the marshall polls, which appeared to be sufficiently amusing that they had it in them to run the last section!
Thanks to the Run leaders and children for making a sunny sunday morning even better
