Tim has done their first race with GoodGym. Performing on the day is a lot of pressure; Tim's dealt with the nerves and turned up on the day to make it happen.

Parkrun On Tour: Crystal Palace

Sat 25 Jun
Report written by Sam Lefevre

Our "Parkrun on Tour" is halfway through 2022! Eight GoodGymers came out for our sixth edition and this time, we were in Crystal Palace! Yet, since Wireless Festival is being setup, the course was changed from a 2 lapper to a 2.25 lapper. We had to do the initial steep(ish) hill three times.

Now, that's six out of six for sunny weather with these "Parkruns on Tour". With optimal conditions, 7 GoodGymers from GG Bromley, Ealing, Hounslow and Southwark were ready to take the course! Tim Lund opted to volunteer as a Tail Walker as they were in desperate need of volunteers.

We all lined up for the start and then off we went! Setting our own pace, here were the results:

  1. Sam - 23rd (21:57)
  2. Matt - 71st (24:13)
  3. Liv - 114th (26:46)
  4. Carina - 119th (27:12) - Personal Best
  5. Laura - 176th (29:36)
  6. Ian - 197th (30:19)
  7. Dave - 261st (36:46)
  8. Tim - 299th (1:02:04) - Tail Walker

After the parkrun and a group photo, we made our way to Black & Green Cafe for a deserved coffee/tea!

Well done everyone and looking forward to seeing you on another "Parkrun on Tour". The next one we'll be heading to Peckham Rye on Saturday 30th of July. I won't be there myself, but there will be a few from GG Southwark. Check the details and sign up here!

Parkrun On Tour (South London Edition): Crystal Palace

Sat 25 Jun 08:45 am
Crystal Palace Park, Thicket Road, London, SE20 8DS
A 5k run & to experience a different Parkrun each month with other GoodGymers

Every last Saturday of the month, let's meet-up/takeover a different parkrun in South London, this is the schedule I propose throughout the year:

  • January 29th - Burgess Park
  • February 26th – Brockwell
  • March 26th – Southwark
  • April 30th - Hilly Fields
  • May 28th – Tooting
  • June 25th - Crystal Palace
  • July 30th - Peckham Rye
  • August 27th – Beckenham
  • September 24th – Dulwich
  • October 29th – Clapham
  • November 26th – Catford
  • December 17th - Bushy

Meet at the start line 10-15 minutes before, run the Parkrun at your own pace and those who finish first can cheer on the rest! After everyone has completed their 5k run and we get that all important group photo, for those who want to stay on, we'll get a hot beverage (whatever is your poison).

What are parkruns?

Parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around the world. Saturday morning events are 5k and take place in parks and open spaces. You can run, walk or volunteer at parkruns. You can even take your dog (if you have one) along! If you have never run a parkrun before, they are a great way to get into running in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Remember, it's FREE, but you can register here to keep a profile (number of parkruns you do, times, etc.).

Nice sense of humus

Fri 27 Aug
Report written by Tim Lund

A nice task clearing up a small back garden, where the brambles hid lots of pots, garden decorations and some tools which might have been useful as well ... once. Mrs L was lovely, with a teasing sense of humour, watching over us as her garden reappeared. We put the plant remains in a corner, to turn into humus, repotted a couple of massive yuccas, and left it with Mrs L to make some decisions about what to keep or throw away

Opening the magic tool shed

Thu 26 Aug
Report written by Tim Lund

A nice garden tidying task, with lots of ivy to clear. I guess I left the garden looking more untidy, but Mrs R and her daughter were happy all the same, because I left them with:

A huge pile of ivy and some leylandii in the middle - and a suggestion to get her son to move it under some trees for composting, rather than bother get it all bagged up as garden waste

A small pond which I'm glad I hadn't stepped into before I'd removed the ivy which completely covered it

A tool shed packed with stuff, much quite useful, but which you couldn't really get into with all the ivy, completely emptied

Its contents sorted and set out over some paving, ready for some to be junked, some put back, some given away perhaps.

It really was progress, and it was nice to see Mrs R smiling at the end

Litterpicking around Anerley Town Hall

Tue 31 Aug 18:30 pm
Anerley Town Hall, Anerley Road, London, SE20 8BD
Improve the space for locals and workers

Anerley Town Hall is looked after by the Crystal Palace Community and Development Trust who do great work with local kids and older people. They've asked us if we can do a litterpick around the perimeter to give it a sprucing up.

We'll arrive at 6:30pm, grab the equipment and should easily be done in an hour.

It might be worth bringing gardening gloves and a mask in case we need to go outside but otherwise all equipment will be provided.
