A Plum Gig

Mon 2 Aug
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Our team at Goodgym Islington joined us for our second official group run from the Emirates Stadium since the return of social running. This time, 5 of us warmed up and ran together towards Elizabeth House Foodbank, one of our classic missions during the height of the pandemic. Paul and Hanry bumped into each other while run commuting from North London, and found out that they were going in the same direction!

Upon our arrival, we met up with the rest of the crew, who had come straight to the task from work, on foot, by bike and on electric scooter! Natalie from Elizabeth House has prepared 10 large crates of donated shopping for our goodgymmers to drop off at various walkable locations across Arsenal, Highbury Hill and Blackstock Estates- essential supplies for local families, vulnerable individuals and those in care.

As the food bank volunteers closed up the centre for the day, we were all offered some lovely sweet plums grown at the Castle Climbing Centre community food gardens, which would have been discarded otherwise (as is the nature of growing fresh fruit from trees- nothing for months, and then a year's worth of food appears out of nowhere!)

Our 5 Goodgym runners picked up their bags of plums, and scaled the mighty Highbury Hill climb back to the Emirates Stadium for our return journey to HQ. A top evening out helping out a busy community organisation.


Next Monday

We will be back group running again next Monday- running to Thornhill Square Gardens, just off Caledonian Road. Beautiful community garden space, maintained by the Friends of Thornhill Square Gardens.

GROUP RUN! - Thornhill Square Gardens

Mon 9 Aug 18:45 pm
The Arsenal Community Hub, 56 Benwell Road, London, N7 7BA
Social running to this lovely community gardens just off Caledonian Road. A favourite task!

The plan is to meet up outside the Arsenal Community Hub on Benwell Road, and after a short warm up, health and safety briefing and a warm welcome, we will run together to Thornhill Square Gardens.

Task Location Thornhill Square Gardens, Islington, N1 1BE

If you are not planning to run with us, our arrival time at Thornhill Square Gardens will be 7.10 - 7.15pm.

After our session, we will aim to arrive back at The Arsenal Community Hub for 8.30pm at the latest.

Things to Note

Please only bring items you are willing to run with.

The bag drop option is not currently available to us at the Arsenal Community Hub, as the space is being used as a Covid testing facility.

This also means that we do not have access to toilets or changing areas yet either.
