GoodGym (not)parkrun will be hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved throughout 2021, get fit and active in your local community and carry forward the parkrun spirit, whilst following Covid rules of course!
GoodGym's (not)parkrun on tour heads to Lambeth this week! 🐑 Land of the Ritzy cinema, the London Eye and (usually) the UK's busiest train station (Waterloo)!
Saturday 27th February - Everyone is very welcome to join!
You can complete your 5K any time on Saturday and submit your time, by midnight on Saturday, using this form
Remember to follow all Covid rules and guidelines on your run, be safe, be socially-distanced and keep moving!
HUGE shout out to Melanie Young of GoodGym Bristol (techno genius) for creating the results form and who is putting 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.
If you'd like a photo to be included in the run report, please take a selfie and email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was decided to have the meeting point at The Forum to collect postcards socially distanced and to have a well known meeting point for any new members of which there were three! A warm welcome to Libby, Hannah and Katie for their first GoodGym session.
Stephen and Robert collected their postcards each and went off on their run, followed by Andy and Ralph and then Libby, Hannah and Katie who set off to their destination.
Unfortunately one runner was unable to make it, but whilst waiting incase of arrival, Steve was able to complete 500 metre laps around The Forum to make up 5k.
Andy's bike had a damaged wheel and had to be parked up before the delivery of cards. Upon return the area was closed due to a major police incident and the bike was in the exclusion zone. A fireman later came to the rescue and allowed Andy to collect the bike. Phew!
It was another great mission, delivering a few hundred postcards and getting to experience different parts of the city as well as different gate and letter box designs.
Pun credit goes to Andy, due to a lovely collection of light up Flamingos in somebodies garden.
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.
*What a breeze! *
On Saturday 20th Feb, 37 GoodGym runners from up and down the country (and even overseas!) battled the breeze and smashed through their 5 kilometers (not) parkrun training session.
Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who has been putting the results together for our (not) parkruns.
Want to put the wind back in your sails?
