Our help is needed on Tuesday night! St Paul's Church and Community Centre in Dorcan is in need of a garden tidy up following the recent lockdown. We were last here back in August 2020 - check it out here!. We have been invited back again for lots of weeding and lots of laughs!
Please consider the following:
To bring hand sanitiser and/or antibacterial wipes
To wear your own gloves
To maintain social distancing at all times, i.e. a 2-metre space between you and another person
Can YOU help? Then sign up TODAY and make it happen!
Throughout lockdown the running community of Swindon run a 5k route of our own choosing at our own time between 18:00 Friday to 18:00 Sunday. We record our efforts and submit them for entry onto the leader board. It's like a real Park Run but different 🏃♂️ 🏃♀️.
13 runners signed up for pacer, tail walking and marshalling duties for the GoodGym takeover of this weekends VPR. Week 58 no less, and we continue to support each other and the Swindon Community runners.
As always I'd like to thank GoodGym Swindon volunteers in supporting me as RD it's never possible without you guys.
Special thanks go to Stuart Kingsley who paced both 22 and 25 minutes, there's just no stopping him 😉 and congratulations to Hannah Garraway who took on the 40 minute pacer along with new entry baby Rueben 👶 and just happened to ring the PB bell 🔔. Brilliant work guys.
As far as I’m told there ‘should’ be just one more GoodGym takeover if all goes to plan and we have other GoodGym RDs lined up to lead so on that note it's adios from me as RD👋

If you would like to do one of the roles above, please write a comment below which one. It would be great if we could try and fill all of these volunteer roles. Doubling up on pacing positions is fine!
And here are the rules:
1) Run solo or with up to six people while social distancing.
2) Adhere to social distancing guidelines; stay at least 2 metres away from anyone outside of your household during your run
2) Do not run at an official parkrun location at 9am on a Saturday; doing so will lead to instant disqualification
3) If you do not feel well, do NOT run.
4) Tourists are welcome!
5) The run can be at any time from 6pm on Friday 23rd April until 6pm on Sunday 25th April.
6) Upload your run to Strava and submit your result here!
8) Take a photo where possible and post on the GoodGym Swindon WhatsApp Group and the Swindon Community Running Facebook Page.
Looking forward to volunteering with you again. Stay safe and stay connected with GoodGym Swindon!
