Been there, run that, got the good gym T-shirt

Sat 23 Oct
Report written by Paul Salman

Nine GoodGym members came together to run Parkrun Hamstead. We gathered at the start to hear the Marshall director provide details of the event. Sobering that they are still looking for volunteers to help run the event which has on occasion not gone ahead for a lack of help. (Hopefully we can stage a take over event soon) After completing our 5 km we gathered and headed off to Burgh House for a coffee.( they had kindly offered a 10% discount) We sat down and chatted undercover of an awning with fairy lights and blankets to keep us warm! Thanks for coming running and bringing your GoodGym selves along.

Come and Guide Run with Achilles International (Paddington Rec Track!)

Thu 7 Oct

Achilles International are an amazing organisation who link guide with blind and particially sighted runners, and they are looking for potential guides for future training sessions.

Goodgym (and parkrun) communities have been very supportive of this team over the years, so we are looking to see if we can introduce more runners to the world of guiding.

Paddington Rec Track Running

From this Thursday through to Spring, Achilles International will be hosting their weekly VI running group session at Paddington Rec Track, an open access 400m track, 5 minutes walk from Maida Vale Station.

How do I get involved?

We are looking for volunteers to come and help our runners from Maida Vale station, over to our meeting spot near Paddington Rec Track, and back again afterwards. TFL staff are on hand to assist with the runners journey to and from Maida Vale.

We are looking for guides to navigate the runners during the session (paces and distances will be discussed beforehand), and to look out for obstacles and hazards during the run.

Open to runners of all guiding experience

If you are not confident with guiding a runner at first, you are welcome to run with a guiding couple to watch their techniques and how it is done.

What do I do now

If you are interested, sign up here.

We will contact you on Wednesday, and link you to the Achilles International WhatsApp group to discuss our plans for Thursday evening.

Introduce yourself, and let us know your guiding experience, and we will work together to create an awesome group!

Raking leaves at Brixton Road Youth Centre

Tue 12 Oct 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
And bagging them up

The leaves have been falling again at Brixton Road Youth Centre, so we're going back for our regular job of sweeping them up and bagging them. Our record is about 30 bags - can we beat it!?

We then stick them on the kerbside so the council can take them and use them for compost! 👌


New to GG Lambeth? We're a super friendly group who meet at Papa's Park near Brixton Station at 7pm on Tuesdays. We run to a local organisation, do a physical task for them and run back by 8:30. You can leave things in Papa's Cafe where there's a loo too! Email me if you've got any questions??

SHELF LYF

Tue 5 Oct
Report written by Mark Gilyead

After a last minute change of task, tonight’s crew were off to Jubilee Primary School for some lifting and shifting.

We met at PAPA’s, shared our favourite biscuit (19 people with nearrllyy 19 different biscuit types 😯), welcomed Freya to her first GG run🎉 and had a quick warm up before hitting the road.


Sarah led a 4k route and the rest of us took the direct 2k route and we got cracking on with 2 tasks:

In the Library: we were shifting shelves, books, games and huge boxes into a cupboard.

In the Car Park: we were chucking some big planks of wood into the skip.

Squat, skip & jump

Both teams finished at exactly the same time, and we had a chaotic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors in the playground. Lose and you do squat jumps up to (What’s the time) Mr Wolf. Win and you sprint to the other side, do 5 press ups and run back.


We ran back, did some stretches and then had some ginger & coconut biscuits!

Here’s the link to sign up to next week’s run!
