We (tin) CAN do it!.

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

The Food Bank Run is a movement that is gaining pace in 2024.

Created off the back of a run started several years ago by Hampshire based running club, Fareham Running Club, they're now encouraging every club, group and food bank to link up and create their own Food Bank Run.

So this is a task we support a few times a year!

We raided cupboards, packed our sacks and set off for a weighted run to our local food bank drop off point.

We did two 4km circuit runs to the food bank, with our sacks and spirits lighter on our return!

Frosty Fletcher Moss Marshalling

Stockport Report written by Ben Foster

Marshalled a frosty and quite muddy (once thawed) Fletcher Moss parkrun for their event #194. A whopping 509(!) runners and walkers completed theb5 km course with lots of local cancellations due to the heavy rain this week.

Juno certainly kept her eye on the ball and ably supported to cheer everyone on!

Chasing your tail

Stockport Report written by Ben Foster

Spent a mild and damp morning helping out by tail walking with Juno at event #193 for Fletcher Moss parkrun. 377 (ish) runners and walkers completed the 5 km course. Shame the tail didn't wag as much for the England cricket team this morning...

Followed up with a run to Stockport to drop off another 1 kg of plastic lids (making it ~2.6 kg) to Plastic Shed for their mural.

Sole mates

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

With our task being canceled last minute, we took the opportunity for a chatty amd social run that was longer than usual. Bags of energy, an extra addition and the best gang going!

We're continuing the January challenge mindset!

Going for broke

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Take 11 GoodGymers, give them 2 hours, 5 cedar trees, dozens of bulbs, and a collection of shrubs.

Et voila..,ground and the fence got cleared of ivy, holes were dug and cedar trees planted, spring bulbs got in the ground, half a dozen holly and privet shrubs were planted, plenty of tennis balls unearthed.

The casualties: one fork broken in half (Ben doesn't know his own strength!), one eye had an argument with a holly bush (thanks to Steve for his expert eye wash skills).

Welcome to GoodGym Amy.
