Orchard triangle

Wed 17 Aug

Marston Community Garden cooperative includes a community allotment, flower garden, the Forest Garden, a chicken coup, an orchard and a new Community Wood on New Marston Recreation Ground, plus much more. We have a few visits planned through the summer, so you'll be getting familiar with a lot of it!

This week we will be at orchard triangle near St Nicholas' Primary School. We will be weeding, feeding, watering and mulching fruit trees and bushes to keep them healthy as they get established.

Bring your gardening gloves. All tools will be provided.

Meeting locations:
* If you would like to join a group run to the task location please meet at 5:45pm outside East Oxford Community Centre, Princes Street, OX4 1DD. Please note the community centre is now closed for redevelopment so we won’t have access for toilets etc. It is under 2 miles to the task location from there.
* If you prefer to meet at the task meet outside St Nicholas Primary School OX3 0PJ at 6:15pm.

Oxford View Cones Expedition

Sun 11 Sep 09:30 am
The Perch Inn, Binsey, Oxford, OX2 0NG
Tim Lund’s route

Bromley GoodGymer Tim used to be a regular at GoodGym Oxford in our first year. Having grown up in Oxford he was able to make some helpful suggestions both for tasks and run routes, and was a valued member of our GoodGym team.

Tim hasn’t made it down to GG Oxford since 2019, but we are FINALLY going to tackle a route he devised which goes around all 10 of the Oxford View Cones - places from which the view of Oxford’s historic centre are meant to be protected.

This is the Strava link to the route: https://www.strava.com/routes/14470653 To our knowledge no-one has attempted the route since this run in 2018.

Our idea is to run-walk the route. People can join for a section between 2 of the view cones, come along for a few, or attempt the whole route, as they prefer.

We will start and end at The Perch in Binsey. Full route is 39km or a bit over 24 miles (with optional swim across the river at the end!). It’s not intended as a race, but a run, walk, jog, to meander around the route. Nothing to stop anyone racing ahead though if you want to test your speed along a nearly-marathon distance.

The View Cone locations are:

  • Raleigh Park
  • Boars Hill
  • Hinksey Hill/A34 Interchange
  • Port Meadow
  • Elsfield
  • Doris Field Memorial Park
  • Headington Hill Allotments
  • South Park
  • Crescent Road
  • Rose Hill

Full details of distances between the different view cones, and plans for which sections are best for walking/running will follow asap.
