Organisations Julia has pledged to support
Norwich GoodGym hosted the first GoodGym (not)parkrun, GoodGym Stockport were the hosts for the second week of the national GoodGym (not)parkrun on Saturday 16th.
Colchester GoodGym will be the host for week 3 on Saturday 23rd January.
GoodGym (not)parkrun is being hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved in the January Challenge 2021, improve your fitness and keep that parkrun spirit going.
You can run or walk, whatever you prefer, from wherever you are in the country.
Everyone is very welcome to join!
Please remember to follow all Covid rules and guidelines on your run, keep safe, be socially-distanced and keep moving!
Just relish being out there.
You can complete your 5K any time on Saturday and submit your time, by midnight on Saturday, using the form.
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. 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.
The first GoodGym (not)parkrun saw an amazing 76 GoodGym runners across the UK take part. Hopefully that total was broken on week 2.
If you'd like a photo to be included in the run report, please take a selfie of yourself or the scenery on the route and send it to me. My WhatsApp is 07890914806. As ever Ian
Lockdown is a tough time for everyone but it doesn't need to stop you setting a fitness goal for 2021.
Sign up here and I will make contact with you to arrange a day and time to help you to set inspirational and achievable goals.
Really looking forward to seeing you in person (on the screen)
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!
