The Windsor and Maidenhead MAD MARCH QUEST

Wed 31 Mar 23:45 pm
All sorts of interesting places, Around Windsor and Maidenhead, Windsor and Maidenhead, SL6 XXX
Quiz meets scavenger run in this month-long fitness challenge

How well do you know our local area? Probably not as well as our Mad March Quest quizmaster James Lovell...He's been busy over the last few weeks cycling and running around Windsor and Maidenhead, finding out all sorts of interesting facts about our towns and the surrounding countryside. And now its your turn!

1 month. Over 50 questions. Loads of inviting footpaths, lovely parks, interesting landmarks and moments in history waiting to be discovered!

How does it work?

The Mad March Quest quiz questions will be shared here and via email to all sign ups at the start of the month, along with a link to a Google Map showing where you need to go to find the answer to each question.

You are expected to arrive at the question location by foot or by bicycle, but you may have a short car ride to travel to the general vicinity before you start your exercise. You can answer as many questions in each outing as you like.

Submit your answers by email to jwlovell@gmail.com. All those submitted before the 1st of April will count. There will be a leaderboard and a prize for the person (or people in the event of a tie!) who answers the most questions.

Late sign ups are very welcome too.

Remember to reach out to the GoodGym community if you're looking for company on your runs or you need help route planning. Please also remember to stay safe and adhere to the GoodGym Covid-19 guidance at all times.

Random Act of Kindness

Mon 1 Mar 23:30 pm
From your home, Any city, Any postcode
Make you smile from the inside out!

"In a world where you can be anything, be kind"

To celebrate A Random Act of Kindness Day, why not use your run to spread some love in the community.

Your Random Act of Kindness could be anything from delivering a (socially distanced) care package to a friend, simply smiling and wishing passers by a good day, or using your run to pick up some litter in your local green space!

The power of a simple act of kindness can be amazing!

Take a snapshot that represents your act of kindness and email it to sian@goodgym.org to be featured in the Run Report.

Let's spread the GoodGym love! ♥️

1st Birthday Party and Quiz

Fri 26 Feb 19:30 pm
Your Street, Your City, Your Post Code
Get together to celebrate our first year

This Friday 26th of February is the anniversary of our launch. GoodGym Windsor and Maidenhead is turning ONE!

GoodGym area birthdays are normally marked with much fanfare and cake, and although we may be locked down, that doesn't mean we can't party. Join us on Zoom for a light-hearted quiz and a good laugh.

You are only required to bring yourself, but if your idea of a good party also includes your family, cake, a chocolate fondue, vodka luge or bouncy castle, then obviously you're welcome to 'bring' that stuff too.

Zoom details will be emailed out around 15 minutes before to everyone who signs up. They will also be shared on the group WhatsApp.

If you can manage a celebratory run in your GoodGym t-shirt (and party hat?) earlier in the day too, then even better! Why not reach out to the group to find a buddy to join you?

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us....!

Duration is an estimate.

A surprise visit at the COVID-19 vaccination clinic

Sat 20 Feb
Report written by Sara Powell

It was all hands on deck at the COVID-19 clinic this week. The arrival of the health pods are a great addition to the clinics. With fewer people visiting their GP since COVID arrived, there is a risk that dangerous health conditions are not being diagnosed early enough. All of the GoodGym team members have done a fantastic job, in stepping up to the challenge. We have had amazing feedback from the clinical team, so a HUGE well done to everyone who has been attending these clinics.

Saturday, Windsor & Maidenhead's MP Mrs Theresa May came to see how the clinic was running. It was so nice for several of the 'GoodGym' team to be able to talk with her. Unfortunately, we couldn't capture the meeting on camera, as no photos are allowed to be taken in the clinic.....

Goodgym getting the shots in

Sat 13 Feb
Report written by Tara Isherwood

Jen, Sara, Paul, James, Jess and Tara supported at the vaccine clinic again this week.
The 10, 000th vaccine was administered at the Desborough Suite in Maidenhead on Thursday. Positive feedback continues from the locals and their appreciation for all involved in the organisation of the Vaccination Centre. The Saturday Team may have hit a record when opening up this morning with a not so balmy -4°C. Hot tea and multiple layers of clothing kept them going throughout the chilly shift.
