Getting rid of a load of furniture

Tue 10 Mar 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
At Brixton Road Youth Centre!

We've had to postpone this task a couple of times... but hopefully this is the week!!

Brixton Road Youth Centre is a vital hub and we're heading there to clear out a load of furniture into the lock-ups they have out of the back.

It's a short run - about 3k roundtrip but we'll have a longer option for those that fancy it!

See you then 💥


We meet at PAPA’s Park near Brixton station every Tuesday evening from 6.45, ready to run at 7pm. We run to a local community organisation, do a physical job for them and then run back. We throw in a few fun fitness drills and have a monthly pub visit after the run!

Whether you’re new to running or a seasoned pro, we always have different distance options and a back marker so no-one gets left behind.

There are toilets and a locked room to leave your stuff in. We’ll be back by 8:30pm.

Any questions? Drop me an email!

Party In My Plants

Tue 3 Mar
Report written by Mark Gilyead

First up, big up totally fresh to GG; Josie, Andrew and Erica - thanks for coming along :)

Tonight GG Lambeth ran to Jubilee Primary School to smash through a massive task.

We had a couple of run options - Direct 2k with me or a little 5k loop with the burgundy boys (Alfie & Steve).

Then we arrived at Jubilee Primary ready to crack on:

1️⃣ Pulling out weeds - not the bulbs, the fake parsley or the tulips 💐 - just the weeds 🌱

2️⃣ Moving the big bags of soil and emptying them into the planter. 👜

3️⃣ Planting some lovely shrubs into the planter 🌳

Things we learnt:

1️⃣ There's a children's book called "Dogger"

2️⃣ Heads, ELBOWS, Knees and Toes is a great song to remind us how to run up hills (and it rhymes better than the original).

3️⃣I need to get another set of keys cut.

All tasks and knowledge learning was done extra efficiently, and what would have taken Juan hours on his own was done in 30 minutes by team Lambeth. ✊

GoodGym Lambeth, I love your work.

Hopefully see you next week for moving out a load of furniture from Brixton Road Youth Centre!

Filling up a skip!

Tue 3 Mar 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
At Jubilee Primary School

We're heading to Jubilee Primary School. Last time they didn't have a skip but this time they will and we've got to fill it! It's a big school so I'm sure there will be loads to chuck out.

We might even throw in a HIIT session or some hill sprints - be prepared!

Lending a hand at Bramford Community Garden

Mon 10 Feb 18:45 pm
Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, London, SW11 5TN
Lots of jobs to do!

Welcome to GoodGym Wandsworth! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

Tonight we're off to Bramford Community Garden, which is run entirely by one volunteer, to do various jobs including picking leaves from flower beds, fixing a broken fence, and doing a litter pick.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.
