‘Jog in the Fog’? or ‘goodgymmers in the mist?’

Sat 18 Sep
Report written by Holly

Bath goodgymmers headed out bright and early to Bath skyline parkrun to volunteer or run. As it seems with a lot of things in Bath the parkrun is at the top of a large hill (it’s a 5km route on Claverton Down). Heading up through the thick mist this morning made it seem even more like we’d gone up into the clouds…

Meyrick volunteered as the tail walker, whilst others helped with the set-up and were marshals to ensure safety on the course. This helped make the run possible for 253 parkrunners.

I have really appreciated the return of parkrun after lockdown for both the fitness and the social interaction, and know for lots of others it’s something they look forward to every week too.

The sun eventually came out through the mist and afterwards we enjoyed a coffee nearby.

River dip and chat

Fri 10 Sep

It's hot! There is no better way to cool off then to dip in the water!

You can walk or cycle to Bathampton, and join us for a quick dip. For those not feeling too brave, you can wade into the water so can stay ankle deep if this makes you feel more comfortable :)

Bring warm clothes / hot drinks for afterwards

Help the community by being active

parkrun is a huge charity that puts on a weekly, free 5km timed run. These runs take place in parks all around the world. Those who take part range from young children through to senior citizens. You can walk, jog or run and even bring your dog to many of the parkruns! parkrun is hugely successful and is even being prescribed by GP surgeries for its physical and mental health benefits.

parkrun relies on volunteers to put on each event . Each week the Bath Skyline parkrun requires 30 volunteers to make it happen. Without volunteers there is no parkrun.

It's a magical community much like GoodGym. Filled with people who all have something in common... wanting to help others and being active.

Choose from being a marshal, timer, handing out finish tokens or scanning! You will need to register to parkrun if you haven't already and confirm your barcode number (A number). It's free to register and just takes a few minutes; https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/

Out of Lockdown and into the Locksbrook

Thu 2 Sep

What's that? The first SOCIAL of 2021! After lots of brilliant missions right through lockdown, vaccinating, gardening, watering, helping - it's time to have an evening to just relax, chat, and get to know your GoodGym friends better. We've had lots of new goodgymmers this year, so this is the perfect chance to put faces to names.

We will be seated OUTSIDE, on tables of 6, but we can move around so everyone gets to see and chat to everyone.

You're welcome to jog, run or cycle, or just arrive in non-active wear for once and look out for friendly faces!
