Report written by Swindon runner

But not just yet. The government roadmap to bring the UK out of Covid Jail has been announced so there is light at the end of this very long tunnel..... YAY!! It's been a whole year since the UK went into the first lockdown but that didn't deter the good people of Swindon from missing out on our beloved Park Runs and VPR came into fruition. 9 runners / walkers covered pacing duties, tail walkers and marshalling and I was RD for the weekend. I couldn't have done this without the support of my fantastic GoodGym Swindon support team, well done guys! Our thoughts were with Tariq Hussain, a Swindon runner, and his family. Sadly, Tariq was struck by a vehicle whilst out running recently and he lost his battle for his life - RIP dear man. We are very lucky here to have a magnificent support group in Swindon Community Running always full of kindness and sound advice, it really is quite amazing.

To celebrate 12 months of GG VPR takeovers!

It's back! The GoodGym Swindon Takeover at the awesome Swindon Virtual parkrun. Thanks to our wonderful parkrun community here in Swindon, a FREE weekly virtual 5K parkrun is available to everyone and anyone. Check out the Swindon Community Running Facebook page for more information:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/118524164846538/

Here is what happened last time; check out the Run Report HERE!

We have been asked to provide volunteers at the 54th virtual parkrun commencing Friday 26th March at 6pm. We are recruiting for the following positions:

  • Pacers - 20, 22, 25, 27, 30, 32, 35, 40 and 45 minutes

  • Tail Walkers

  • Marshals

  • Run Report Writer

If you would like to do one of the roles above, please write a comment below which one. It would be great if we could try and fill all of these volunteer roles. Doubling up on pacing positions is fine!

And here are the rules:

1) Run solo or with one other person whilst maintaining social distancing.

2) Adhere to social distancing guidelines; stay at least 2 metres away from anyone outside of your household during your run

2) Do not run at an official parkrun location at 9am on a Saturday; doing so will lead to instant disqualification

3) If you do not feel well, do NOT run.

4) Tourists are welcome!

5) The run can be at any time from 6pm on Friday 26th March until 6pm on Sunday 28th March.

6) Upload your run to Strava and submit your result here!

8) Take a photo where possible and post on the GoodGym Swindon WhatsApp Group and the Swindon Community Running Facebook Page.

Looking forward to volunteering with you again. Stay safe and stay connected with GoodGym Swindon!

Don't worry...beach happy!

Report written by Jo O'Leary

Aloha! This weekend, under bright blue skies, Swindon became a tropical paradise 🏝️ and we had a lot of fun in the sun 🌞

It was a GoodGym takeover for Swindon's virtual parkrun and a Hawaii 5-0 theme gave the opportunity to escape winter and release those Hawaiian shirts and beachwear from the depths of the wardrobe.🩳👙 And the Swindon running community did not disappoint - with the brightness of the outfits matching the vibrancy and warmth of our running family.

Our fabulous team of virtual pacers, tailwalkers and marshalls supported 144 runners and walkers, with 15 people ringing the PB bell 🔔. 20 minute pacer Paul was quick off the mark in the most magnificent grass skirt. Alexandra was spot on with the 30 minute pacing, as were Cath and Annie in her pawsome outfit 🐶.

With the news of the roadmap for the return of parkrun, we hope that we'll be together again soon. Maybe for a celebration cake -meanwhile Ashleigh kindly offered virtual slices of a very real cake 🎂...it's the thought that counts?!
