We had a great group of Goodgymmers join us for our weekly cycle delivery task at the Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank. A top crew of familiar faces, along with Guy, who completed his first ever Goodgym session with us.
12 large crates full of shopping, food supplies and essential items were dropped off to Islington households by our team, on a lovely warm Spring evening.
In July 2021, 20+ Goodgym runners will be participating in the Camino Ultra London 50km race (from Welwyn Garden City to Hackney Wick)- many of them running their first ultra distance event.
We are hosting a special question & answer evening with experienced ultra runners via Zoom, for anyone interested in taking on long distance running.
Open for anyone- those who are new to the ultra distance, planning their next running challenge or whether you have loads of races completed!
Expect questions about:

During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!
"Run For Your Life: The New York Marathon"
Blending archival and contemporary footage with recollections from past champions, recreational participants, volunteers and local politicians, this documentary looks at the life and passion of Fred Lebow, founder of the New York City Marathon.
From extremely humble beginnings -- in 1970, less than 100 people participated in the inaugural 26.2 mile race through the five boroughs -- the race evolves into a global happening, drawing competitors and spectators from all over the world.
"Without one eccentric first-generation Jewish immigrant from Transylvania, the New York City Marathon simply wouldn't exist. Ehrlich's fun, loving, and inspirational tribute to the late Fred Lebow shows how one man's imagination, determination, and love for running created one of the world's most popular sporting events."- Tribeca Film Festival
