A bumper group of runners turned out last night for the Group Run and were greeted with perfect summer running conditions.

AA Yianny was recovering from the weekend's exertions in York so wouldnt be running to the task but both Joao and Sarah stepped in to lead and back mark respectively - thank you team!

This evening's category was favourite UK destination with plenty of coastal and countryside locations cited, some North vs South Devon devate and of course agreement that Brixton and Tulse Hill were the clear winners....

The runners set off and showed that in London using human horse power can be more efficient than motorised transport and arrived to meet Justin first! The tasks were laid out and the group selected their implements of choice whether that be a scythe, secateurs or good old pitch fork and we got stuck in to clear around the pond and turn the compost.

A nice surprise was having GG member Chi Nwa join us for a chat and take a couple of wonderful pictures, always nice to have members from around the communities pop in.

While the runners were busy with the task Justin brought out some squash and biscuits for a little pause and then it was time to tidy up and head back to base. Once again the runners won the race and were deep into their warm down by the time the AA made it back to liberate their bags from the hall.

Thanks everyone and look forward to seeing you next week!

Cutting through the City Like a Knife and York !!

Sun 7 Aug
Report written by Yianny

Sunday saw the epic climax to a wonderful weekend of activities with the York 10k taking place around the city under a beautiful blue sky.

The Lambeth team had lost a member who wasn't feeling well enough to travel up but were determined to put in good times in the race (feel better Tim!) and had a full weekend of hospitality in York behind them with Nicky and her York GGers making us feel very welcome at the ParkRun, breakfast, Community Missions and Saturday evening get together.

Tilly, Sarah and Katy met AA Yianny bright and early (which was important in order to queue up for the loos!) and were able to enjoy the York Racecourse in all its glory with some lovely sunshine overhead.

Pre-race prep was underway with smartwatches being checked, music downloaded, earbuds secured, sun cream applied but as yet no sign of our last race team member Kaz.... Not to worry though a few quick WhatsApp messages later and Kaz made it into the race line before all of us (damn you loo queues!).

Well done race organisers - at exactly 9:30am the gun was fired (there wasn't a real gun don't worry) - and we were off with each person heading out at their own pace to try to hit their target times.

York is a beautiful city and the route took in some of the sights including the river, the city ramparts and gates, York Minster before circling back around to the Racecourse - it took a bit of self reminding to look around and enjoy the scenery and not get too caught up in completing the race and it was fairly flat which really helped.

Now to the (not very) important bit, our Lambeth race times... I'm delighted to report that everyone hit their personal targets and Kaz led the way with an excellent 48 minute time, Katy in 52, Sarah in 1 hour even, Tilly in 1:09 and AA somehow coaxed his knees over in 50.

There was representation from GoodGym York too, both in runners and marshalling.

All that remained was for Lambeth team was to meet at a local coffee shop for a celebratory coffee and something delicious preferably involving icing or plenty of sugar all in the name of recovery of course.

A huge thank you to Nicky AA extraordinaire and Lambeth alumni as well as all the York team we met over a very fun 2 days of GG Big Weekender.

🐸 The little frog laughed to see such fun 🎶

Sat 6 Aug
Report written by Nicky Woodall

🌳 A group of GoodGymmers from York and Lambeth congregated for a post-parkrun community mission at Rowntree Park. Having come from either a yummy Knavesmire breakfast or another community mission for Collective Sharehouse, they were ready to get fit by doing good 😁

🦎 After transporting the equipment from the cafe storage to the new wildlife area, Christine quickly set us to work. While some scythed (after some individualised instruction), others shovelled sand to go at the bottom of the new pond, which had sadly suffered some damage. The sand went on quickly, followed by carpet, another liner, more sand and another carpet layer to protect from future damage (hopefully!) The shovellers then changed their material to woodchip, which they spread around the base of the trees and then along the paths. There was some task-swapping between shovelling and scything to work different muscles and with so many hands, the hour flew by and it was lovely to see the difference we'd made 💪

🌺 The wildlife area (including the bog garden we made a few months ago) looks great so I'd recommend a look if you're passing nearby any time soon. Oh, and Louise found a frog, so the local wildlife are clearly enjoying it too 🐸

☕ With so much done, we'd all deserved a coffee and cake so headed to Cycle Heaven 😇

👍 It was really lovely to join our Lambeth pals for both a run and a task and we wish you all the very best for the 10k tomorrow. We'll be cheering the GG tops on extra loudly 🙌
