Back to ̶B̶l̶a̶c̶k̶ RED! 🥳

Sun 25 Jul
Report written by Danny

After 2 long years the Asics London 10k was finally back on the streets of Westminster and as ever, GoodGym were there to provide support (and water) to the people racing.

Despite TFL seemingly taking the morning off and a very threatening weather forecast, 23 volunteers made it to Aid Station 1 on Victoria Embankment just behind Somerset House, home of GoodGym HQ. On this occasion we were distributed across several sites in fact, with 6 or so pioneers also down at Westminster Abbey helping out on Aid Station 2.

It was a cool day out so demand for water would be modest, but nonetheless the cups were carefully stacked 3 layers high along 15-odd tables ready for the runners. For the first time we also had a refilling stop for those who’d brought their own bottles.

As well as people proudly wearing their GoodGym colours, those racing included Spartans, a banana, a panda bear and a man dressed entirely in purple. 🤷‍♂️

Presumably owing to a staggered start and the mild temperature, things never got hectic on Aid Station 1 and it really wasn’t long before it was time to politely encourage the unused water cups onto the ground and start clearing everything away.

Thanks so much for coming team and helping get GoodGym out in front of some eyes! Those that volunteered on AS1 today get to enjoy a free place on an upcoming LimeLight Sports race which will be the (postponed) Hackney Half this September, the Oxford Half in October, the Hackney Half in May 2022, or the next London 10K in a years time.

GoodGym aid station at Asics London 10K

Sun 25 Jul 07:30 am
Westminster Pier, Victoria Embankment, London, SW1A 2JH
Come and volunteer at the race, and get a place at another big race for FREE

We're back for a third time this July at the Asics London 10K in Westminster.

We’ll be operating the aid station along Victoria Embankment, across the river from the London Eye and County Hall. The task itself amounts to handing out water to sweltering runners whilst yelling encouragement in their faces - you’ll love it!

Here's a run report from the 2018 event and the 2019 one here to get a sense of what to expect.

So get your red shirt on, and come along and cheer-on the GoodGymmers competing in the race, help increase the visibility of GoodGym at this busy high-profile event, and get a little something for your trouble…

LimeLight Sports offer each GoodGym volunteer:

  • A free place on an upcoming LimeLight Sports race. That's the (postponed) Hackney Half this September, the Oxford Half in October, the Hackney Half in May 2022, or the next London 10K in a years time.

  • Breakfast on the day.

  • Loot. Historically there's always been branded merch assigned to volunteers at the start, and finishers shirts floating about at the end. TBC exactly what yet.

Details

Times: 7.30 – 1.30 (although we ordinarily get signed-off rather before this)

Getting there: Waterloo and Charing Cross mainlines, Westminster and Embankment Undergrounds are all nearby. Be aware some buses on the North side of the river will be on diversion because of the race.

Any questions please leave comment below, or get in touch on daniel@goodgym.org

Report written by Paulin Shek

Yesterday we had a successful session leafleting for Peckham Pantry, covering the neighbouring streets to its shop on Peckham Park Road.

We welcomed Lucy to her first Goodgym mission with more than one other person, and third mission overall 👏

Things to celebrate:

🏢 We managed to get into every building that we tried

💪 We covered roughly 6,000 steps

🪜and 15 flights of stairs!

Well done to everyone for coming, especially Sam and Emily who were still hobbling from their Ultramarathons last weekend!
