For Fox's Sake

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Tonight, 12 GoodGymers met on the streets of Brixton for two tasks ✌️

Two for Tuesdays 🍕🍕

We ran as one to Loughborough Farm, where most of the group met Emily who instructed in preparing the ground for an event they have coming up this weekend.

This involved levelling some soil and spreading a load of woodchip on the ground. There was also an interruption from a friendly fox. 10 points if you can spot it in the photos!


Group 2 were off to do some leafleting for the brand new Friends of Loughborough Park who have organised a monthly litter pick! We were spreading the word so other people can join to make the park look it’s best 👌

We blitzed a few roads near to the park and only got a little lost finding our way back to Loughborough Farm! 😬


We had a quick thigh-busting game of squat squat goose in the park before a light jog back to base!

Great work guys!!

Distributing leaflets for Loughborough Park's Litter pick

Tue 21 Sep 19:00 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
And levelling ground and moving planters at Loughborough Farm!

Loughborough Park is a great little spot right by Loughborough Junction Station, but it's had it's fair share of litter problems - we've noticed on our way through on group runs...

Some local residents have decided to take matters into their own hands by arranging litter pick sessions, showing other park-users that they care and hopefully it will eventually encourage people to stop making a mess!

They've asked us for a hand with spreading the word, popping flyers through people's doors.

It'll probably amount to a 4km or so run.


We've also been asked to help out Loughborough Farm with some levelling some ground (using shovels to shift some rocky soil) and moving some big planters - so some more demanding work if people fancy 💪

Please bring gardening gloves! 🧤🧤


New to GG Lambeth? We're a super friendly group who meet at Papa's Park near Brixton Station at 7pm on Tuesdays ALTHOUGH WE'RE MEETING JUST DOWN THE ROAD here this week because there's an event at Papa's this week. We run to a local organisation, do a physical task for them and run back by 8:30. Email me if you've got any questions??

Hanky Petanque-y

Tue 7 Sep
Report written by Mark Gilyead

What an absolutely gorgeous evening for doing some good! ☀️

This evening we met at a buzzing Papa's Park. The music was blaring, the cafe was open and Valcie came to say hello!

We briefly discussed our favourite beverages for a day such as today (including several healthy and soft choices!) 🥵 and then we got going to Larkhall Park's petanque pitch/court/arena(???) which had definitely seen better days...

There we met Alex who gave us very clear instructions of our task:

  • Uproot a load of weeds that had gone wild around the edge of the pitch
  • Rake the gravel into piles
  • Shovel the gravel into wheelbarrows
  • Wheel the gravel to the big pile at the edge of the park so it can be reused

It was a proper workout but most of us switched up jobs so we didn't get too tired. Ed kept going on his weeding patch though, right up until the end. 👏

Some locals and one of the Friends of Larkhall Park who walked by said they were super grateful for what we were doing, pleased that the petanque pitch would finally see some use! (And definitely be easier on the eye...)

Petanque you very much

Nice work guys! Here's the link to next week's task and we'll head to the pub afterwards too! 🍹

Or a trip to help out at Thorlands Gardens

Group runs are back in full swing and this week we have 2 tasks options:

🌱Weeding at Larkhall Park - It's about 1.5km from our base at Papa's Park.

🌱Our other run is to Thorlands Gardens to help out our mates in GG Southwark who have a session there at the same time! Apparently they have a bunch of tasks on offer. It's about 3km from base.

Please bring gardening gloves.

Magdalena Bujar has completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Tue 10 Mar 2020

Magdalena has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

Lichen what I see

Tue 10 Mar
Report written by Mark Gilyead

A little drizzle wasn’t going to stop a fab 32 runners hitting the pavements for some furniture and moss removal.

We started off welcoming new runners Jessica and Hannah as well as Effie who has just moved back to London from former Lambeth twin area Liverpool. It just so happened that it was her 50TH GOOD DEED, and she happily adorned herself with the cape of good hope.

Nice one Effie!

We then set sail with Samantha and George leading a longer route and the rest of us taking the direct route to Brixton Road Youth Centre.

When we arrived, we quickly moved some tables and filing cabinets into the blue lockup or the other one.

Then we began the satisfying task of scraping up moss, pulling up weeds and piling up the bags. Unbelievably there were still some leaves left to bag, having already cleared loads on previous visits. I'm sure we'll be back soon enough to do even more...

Once there was a big pile of bags, we stowed the tools and hit the road, mixing up the pace with some Fartlek.

Next week we're back at the Portico Gallery to sort out the Feast tables and it's pub week aaaand St Patrick's Day! Sign up here ☘️🍻

Getting rid of a load of furniture

Tue 10 Mar 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
At Brixton Road Youth Centre!

We've had to postpone this task a couple of times... but hopefully this is the week!!

Brixton Road Youth Centre is a vital hub and we're heading there to clear out a load of furniture into the lock-ups they have out of the back.

It's a short run - about 3k roundtrip but we'll have a longer option for those that fancy it!

See you then 💥


We meet at PAPA’s Park near Brixton station every Tuesday evening from 6.45, ready to run at 7pm. We run to a local community organisation, do a physical job for them and then run back. We throw in a few fun fitness drills and have a monthly pub visit after the run!

Whether you’re new to running or a seasoned pro, we always have different distance options and a back marker so no-one gets left behind.

There are toilets and a locked room to leave your stuff in. We’ll be back by 8:30pm.

Any questions? Drop me an email!

Party In My Plants

Tue 3 Mar
Report written by Mark Gilyead

First up, big up totally fresh to GG; Josie, Andrew and Erica - thanks for coming along :)

Tonight GG Lambeth ran to Jubilee Primary School to smash through a massive task.

We had a couple of run options - Direct 2k with me or a little 5k loop with the burgundy boys (Alfie & Steve).

Then we arrived at Jubilee Primary ready to crack on:

1️⃣ Pulling out weeds - not the bulbs, the fake parsley or the tulips 💐 - just the weeds 🌱

2️⃣ Moving the big bags of soil and emptying them into the planter. 👜

3️⃣ Planting some lovely shrubs into the planter 🌳

Things we learnt:

1️⃣ There's a children's book called "Dogger"

2️⃣ Heads, ELBOWS, Knees and Toes is a great song to remind us how to run up hills (and it rhymes better than the original).

3️⃣I need to get another set of keys cut.

All tasks and knowledge learning was done extra efficiently, and what would have taken Juan hours on his own was done in 30 minutes by team Lambeth. ✊

GoodGym Lambeth, I love your work.

Hopefully see you next week for moving out a load of furniture from Brixton Road Youth Centre!

Filling up a skip!

Tue 3 Mar 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
At Jubilee Primary School

We're heading to Jubilee Primary School. Last time they didn't have a skip but this time they will and we've got to fill it! It's a big school so I'm sure there will be loads to chuck out.

We might even throw in a HIIT session or some hill sprints - be prepared!
