I’ve created 7 short Strava segments which lead up to various GoodGym Lambeth tasks, as if running from Papa’s Park in Brixton (all of which we’ve visited in the last year). Unscramble the clues in caps below and see if you can run the segment IRL 😏
SKI RUN Rush
CURE THY TONE Slog
MIND WILL Whoosh
REEL LADS SHINDIG Hurtle
I LUB JEE Jaunt
NON TREKKING NAP Plod
COP RIOT Push
There's no time limit and this is not a proper event, just a wee challenge for your regular runs.
Make sure you’re in the GoodGym Lambeth Strava Club and I’ll keep an eye out to see if anyone’s managed to find them! 👀

We've got our first mission at the amazing Ace of Clubs Homeless charity - this is a family-like community providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised.
We'll be doing a brief clean up and potentially a paint job over lunchtime. Come and have a break from work, do some good and support the local homeless people at the same time!
Does what it says on the tin.
Turn up with some gloves and we'll get stuck in, yanking up bindweed and going for the roots.
Meet at the Priory Grove entrance. Here are the coordinates
It's Keep Britain Tidy week!
We'll be helping out the lovely Friends of Kennington Park team with various gardening jobs and also whizzing round the park grabbing litter.
Post-session optional fitness - Probably some circuits in the park.
Meet by the garden - basically on the East side of the park, to the left of the sports courts.
See yah there 🤙
Selina is a now a pretty committed GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the fifth time
Selina has helped keep other people motivated, Selina has noticed what others have done and cheered 10 people. We doff our caps to you Selina.
When the lovely lady who had referred the community mission met us with a big cheery welcome it made the very sweaty journey to the task all worthwhile. Frances, Tessa, Selina and I made quick work of moving the sewing machines and cutting table to allow for social distancing procedures once the centre re opens.
Unfortunately we hit a slight issue when it came to moving around the under desk storage. Apparently it had been reordered by builders during lockdown and no matter what configuration we tried, the storage didn't seem to fit correctly. We came to the conclusion that it must of expanded in the heat! After 45 sweaty minutes we had got it into the best position possible and we were back out into the crazy London heat for a walk home. Hats off to anybody able to run in this weather.
Fingers crossed we can head back to the GLOW centre and figure it out when everything cools down!
We've been asked by Myatt's Field Park if we can give them a hand with some weeding and other jobs they haven't been able to do during lockdown.
Jobs will vary week to week (we have a few of these sessions booked in) so please make sure you bring some gardening gloves! 🧤🧤
Meeting Point - The meeting point will be the depot entrance gate along Cormont Road (just off to the right once you've been down Brief Street). Use this link for Google Maps directions...
