Headtorch Group Run- Parkland Walk Edition!

Fri 28 Jan

Area Activator Simon will be leading a group run (social pace, all abilities welcome) along the Parkland Walk- a former railway line between Finsbury Park and Highgate Woods.

Our plan is to run approximately 8-10km of total distance, enjoying this popular route in the cover of darkness, but using our own headtorches to light the way!

The terrain is firm, but can be a little bit muddy. Light trail shoes or hardy road shoes would be best (brand new Nike 4% super shoes probably not recommended!).

Happy to finish our run with a bit of something to eat (possibly Neat Burger on Stroud Green Road), or some refreshments at the local pub.

Weekend Workshop at the Westbury Banks Nature Reserve

Sun 30 Jan 10:00 am
Westbury Nature Reserve Westbury Ave, Wood Green, London , N22 6RS
Give the local residents a hand in the transformation of this green space

We'll be visiting our friends at Westbury Banks Nature Reserve where we will be helping them get the Reserve ready for a busy winter ahead, as they continue to transform this formerly disused piece of land into a little green oasis in North London.

Tasks for this weekend include the installation of the signs we created at the last workshop, and also helping level out the area surrounding the newly-created hibernaculum

Track Attack February 2022- Back to Victoria Park!

Sun 13 Feb 11:00 am
Pavilion Cafe, Victoria Park, Old Ford Rd,, London, E9 7DE
Back by popular demand- 1 mile and 5km time trial in Victoria Park!

After making a trip to Victoria Dock over the Xmas period, we plan to return to Victoria Park track for our first springtime Track Attack session!

Come and join us for a Goodgym track meet at Victoria Park Track.

(We will meet at the Pavilion Cafe at the entrance to the park and then walk over to the track).

Sign up to run either:

1 mile time trial- 4 laps

5000m (5km)- 12.5 laps

Please comment on this event page to state which distance you would prefer.

We are planning on hosting 2 or more timed events, limiting the numbers of participants on the track at one time. Those who are not running in the race will be asked to be lap counters, and will swap roles as they run.

Although the event is timed, it definitely isn't going to be competitive. Open to all, chase your own goals!

Come and cheer each other on. Afterwards, we will meet up for a coffee and possibly some brunch at the HUB Cafe across from the track.

Meet you at Pavilion Cafe near the entrance to Victoria Park (Globe Road), and we will walk to the track

Please note that we may host this session at Victoria Dock instead depending on the weather conditions leading up to this session. All participants will be notified in advance via email.

Not an immovable task 🛋

Thu 27 Jan
Report written by Sam Chapman

Mrs M needed some furniture swapping into different rooms to make her home more comfortable.

On arrival, Richard and myself were a little taken aback by the massive wardrobe and wondered if it could be moved!

But with typical GoodGym resilience and determination (and a serious sweaty workout!) we got the bed and wardrobe moved from one room and the sofa swapped round to the other room. Mrs M was happy with our effort and we were pleased to get it done!

Good to meet you Richard and hopefully see you round! 😃

GoodGym Haringey group run

Wed 2 Feb 18:45 pm
Blue House Yard, 5 River Park Road, London, N22 7TB
Join us to do good and get fit

Welcome to GoodGym Haringey! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

I'm busy confirming what exactly we'll be doing this week, it'll definitely be something amazing in our community. Check back soon for more details.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

A Life Dress Ordinary

Wed 26 Jan
Report written by Euclides Montes

SOUNDTRACK FOR THIS REPORT We were seneraded with a frankly haunting rendition of this last night by some of our Goodgymmers. So I'm sharing the earworm with you as you read

11 Goodgymmers were all dressed up and with somewhere to go as they ran to lend a hand at the Traid shop in Wood Green.

Live Traid

We love going to Traid. This is a task that we've now got down to a T and last night was no exception.

We arranged to arrive at Traid earlier than usual to make sure we were as helpful as possible and that we did.

We wasted no time starting packing the old range of clothes away - not without a little jacket fitting here, and skimpy dress fitting there. The good folk at Traid didn't expect so many willing volunteers to turn up and seemed delighted at the speed at which we worked, if a little bemused about the behaviour of our tribe.

You see, Sarah was wearing a military-style jacket and started saluting the length and breath of this wonderful Wood Green establishment, all the while some Goodgymmers were singing their hearts out and - it says here - "throwing shapes." Gramps was setting a good example by trying a very revealing little outfit, and there was loud strategising about an online war with a rival Goodgym crew.

So you can understand why the Traid folk were a little taken aback.

All the same, our most sensible goodgymmer, Rosa (who happens to be Gramps's mother) shamed us into a semblance of good behaviour and it was early doors for us.

All's well that ends well, I suppose.

Join us next week for more shenanigans.
