Sara is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
We are back to Group Runs and this one will be bags of fun with something for everyone. Meet at the Cycle Hub READY TO RUN OR WALK (there are no changing or storage facilities available)
Recyke is an amazing hidden space and we will be helping out with a range of tasks to keep the area looking splendid. There's then the option to take part in a fitness session suitable for all abilities before we run or walk back.
This is an outstanding charity that we are always proud to support. Please wear a mask for this task as it will take place indoors.
YOU MUST SIGN UP FOR THIS GROUP RUN: ARRIVALS ON THE DAY WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT SIGN UP AS PER NEW GROUP RUN RULES
The Quayside really showed its beauty off tonight for our Group Run! As a group of kayakers took to the Tyne for a night cruise (yes, really!) we met armed with bags and litter picks on a perfect autumn night.
We met Sara for the very first time as she came to give GoodGym a go- go and give her a big cheer! Aimee had a very impressive warm up run to the start area, while Neil took it easy ahead of the Yorkshire marathon this weekend and Charlotte and I nursed various injuries and walked.
It was good to see a few usual litter hot spots were looking a little clearer, but venturing to the road side we found a few untidy areas to clear up in no time at all. Four bags were filled pretty quickly, with the weirdest item of the night going to Aimee who found a Halloween web decoration complete with fake spider! Neil bagged an extra good deed, giving people directions to Newcastle arena.
It was a tame kind of fitness session with multiple games of Rock Paper Scissors complete with short exercises at the end of each round.
A super start to the week and a nice feeling to be back after my knee surgery!
Run, walk or cycle in this Group activity that will keep Newcastle Quayside looking its best.
Please meet ready to run, walk or cycle and wear gloves! Litter pickers and bags provided. There will be a fitness session at the end of the session for those who want to join in!
Meet on the river side of Quayside Wetherspoons
