I am already a member of GoodGym Portsmouth but have moved out of the city and would like to see the development of GoodGym in Chichester. There is so much potential for missions and tasks in the wider Chichester area. I love combining running, helping my local community, protecting the environment and having fun with others doing the same.
Yesterday, GoodGym Stockport hosted the second in a series of (not) parkrun training sessions, aiming to keep us fit, active and happy during the current Lockdown measures.
Saturday 16th saw an incredible 83 runners from GoodGyms up and down the country...and even overseas! (shout out to those who were running in GoodGym spirit from Prague and Spain!) pacing their local trails and green spaces to complete the 5km session.
It seems the elements were out in spectacular force with runners embracing the winter wonderland conditions!
All in all, a RUNderful Saturday (not) parkrun!
Next week, Saturday 23rd January, the baton will be passed to GoodGym Colchester to host. You can sign up here: https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/goodgym-not-parkrun-week-3
Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who will put the results together for our (not) parkrun events.
Please follow all COVID guidelines - stay local, stay away from other people and keep safe!
To provide a little bit of variety to our daily exercise and to finish January 2021 challenge with a bang we will create a Rainbow from our walks. How it will work: Everyone will be assigned a colour to find and they will need to take a photo of an item of that colour, one selfie would be great as well:)
Sign Up and get moving!
Redbridge will be picking up the baton for (not) parkrun on Saturday 30th January! Everyone is very welcome to join!
And remember to follow all Covid rules and guidelines on your run, be safe, be socially-distanced and keep moving!
GoodGym (not)parkrun will be hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved in the January Challenge 2021, get fit and active in your local community and carry forward the parkrun spirit, whilst following Covid rules of course!
You can complete your 5K any time on Saturday and submit your time, by midnight on Saturday, using the form
A big shout out to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (aka tech savvy whizz kid) for creating the results form and who will put 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 it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy an hour with nature and discover the wildlife on your doorstep counting how many garden birds you see. Last year a group of us took part in this at Valentines Park but the Tier 4 rules in in Redbridge at the moment dictate that we should be in pairs or on our own this year. You can do this in your own garden as well, if you have one:)
Everyone is welcome to sign up and do it solo or pair up with someone close to you.
