New to GoodGym Southwark?

Not to worry, it can be daunting coming to your first group run, but we are so welcoming whether you're just starting out as a runner or have been running for years. We welcome all!

Here's the important information - the "Where, When and What":

πŸ“ We meet at Old Spike Roastery in Peckham between 18:30-18:45. You can also meet us at the task: Galleywall Nature Reserve near South Bermondsey Station at 19:10/19:15.

⌚ 18:30 (leaving at 18:40 latest). If meeting at task, be there for 19:10/19:15. We will be back in Peckham by 20:30 (latest).

βœ… There will be access to Old Spike Roastery, so you can drop your bags and use their toilets before we head out.

πŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ After a quick warm-up, we run together as a group. If there are loads of us, there will be a back marker to ensure no one is left behind. On this run, we will be running 3.5k each way. Running at a medium pace to get to the task in 25 minutes. We will spend 45 minutes doing the tasks mentioned above (or as much as we can) before running back to finish by 20:30.

Advisable: Bring your gardening gloves 🧀 for the task.

A chip on the old block (of flats)

Report written by Lewisham runner

In a fitting tribute to Kim’s impressive exploits at Sunday’s Windermere Marathon, this week saw GoodGym Lewisham tackle our own long run! For the first time we’d be running around 4km to the PNK Garden, right on the border between us and our neighboring Borough of Southwark.

With everyone kindly arriving a little bit early, enabling a timely departure from Glass Mills, we had only a few moments to welcome along Rawan for her very first GoodGym run before we were off. With typical Lewisham efficiency, the finer points of an introduction were covered off on the move as we headed to and through Deptford before arriving to be greeted by Lara.

Lara instigated the PNK Garden project early in the pandemic as a way of clearing the waste ground adjacent to Lower Road and directly in front of her flat. Now nearly 2 years later, the space has been transformed beyond recognition to a wide open area with scope for planting and use by the local community.

Our initial group of 12 divided in two to tackle tasks at either ends of the garden; 7 to begin weeding the southern (Lewisham) end whilst 5 prepared new planting beds in the northern (Southwark) end.

Just as a brief rain shower swept in, our spirits and numbers were lifted as the southern group were bolstered by two Victorias; one from Lewisham and one from Greenwich! Meanwhile the northern group were one bed down, duly filled with staged layers of sand and earth, and were motoring through lining bed two.

With the south now looking clear, it was time to start covering the new space won back from nature with woodchip to keep future weeds at bay.

Sadly with a long run comes reduced working time and before we knew it we were tidying away gloves and tools and readying ourselves for group photos, perched around the pallets neatly stacked early by Alison and Rawan. After a quick thank you to Lara for hosting us, and a promise to return for future tasking, the group headed back across the border into Lewisham and started the long journey back to Glass Mills.

Next up: our monthly social at Lewisham Lanes – see you there!
