Where the wild things are

Brighton Report written by Sarah Katharine (She/Her)

Seven Good Gymers ran or cycled to the Waterhall Food Partnership Club House.

It was a longer run this Tuesday - good practice for the upcoming Hove 10k and Beachy Head Half!

Pippa led a group of runners four miles up and up the long Dyke Road and over the Downs to get there. At the top we were rewarded with views over the Downs and Brighton. We ran a cross the rewilded nature reserve site!

Stefania led a group of cyclists the four miles along the cycle route.

We set to work ticking off our tasks and cleared the weeds from the wheelchair ramp. We made sure we only cleared the ramp and access as the rest of the site was a rewilded nature reserve!

After some sweeping we set off back down the hill. We ran by moonlight and our head torches (I will remember mine next time) and managed not to fall down a rabbit hole.

It was satisfying running back down the hill and we were cheered by the freewheeling cycling group.

There was lots to do there so we will be back!

Han(d)over the paint!

Brighton Report written by Philippa (She/her)

This week we ran to Hanover and Elm Grove to help keep the streets clean ✨️ Weeding and painting were the order of the day, with the team splitting up to conquer multiple tasks.

Jane and Georgia got to work clearing the pavement alongside a church, while Stefania and Ben tackled the ever prolific bindweed in the flower beds. Meanwhile, Juliet and Sarah got to work painting over graffiti tags, Sarah having made the smart move of wearing her painting clothes. Some of us had less foresight, and now have fun new patterns on our trainers... 🙄

After reconvening (with a little help from Michael who managed to join us post commute) we headed to The Level for a fun speed workout! We worked on accelerating the pace and building endurance by running progressively faster laps with no breaks 💪 We also plotted the GG Brighton Christmas Party, and learned the importance of standing on one leg while we brush our teeth 😁

Thanks everyone for a great session, and look forward to seeing you next time.

Golden(hour) litter picking

Brighton Report written by STEFANIA ROSSO (she/her)

The sunsets on the Brighton & Hove seafront are amazing in September! Always.

Following a great sunny week at the end of what was a bit of a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” summer, yesterday’s weather forecast was not to be believed, and so Brighton GoodGym did (not).

There was in fact a great atmosphere and we had a very pleasant litter picking on Brighton beach, regardless of Met Office’s weather warning with risk of thunderstorms, I wonder where 😊?!

GoodGym Brighton welcomed new member Georgia and Shaun the Sheep, who is visiting Brighton from the 9th September to the 5th November. Shaun by the Sea brings together a fantastic flock of 40 individually designed sculptures of Shaun, which represent the individuality and diversity of Brighton & Hove. We already met two Shauns and we will indeed keep welcoming all to join our next GoodGym sessions in Brighton.

Ace parkrun and Bevy combo

Brighton Report written by STEFANIA ROSSO (she/her)

We took over volunteering at the Bevendean Downs parkrun, and it was ace!

The Bevendean Down is a wonderful gem of a parkrun on the doorstep of the South Downs, with astonishing landscapes and viewpoints that make you (almost ;-) forget the hilly off-road terrain while running the 2 laps route of this lovely parkrun on the edge of Brighton city.

Thanks Michael and Philippa for taking up this initiative, and Ben, Rebecca, Sarah and Nicola for getting on well in your designed volunteering roles. It was Sarah's second time here, this time as a race marshal.

Despite the morning turned wet by the end, your smiles seem to keep up shining all time along, likewise the sun who presumably welcomed you, the other volunteers and the event’s runners at the start line!

The entire field of runners and volunteers ended up to The Bevy pub for some coffee and breakfast baps, which somehow felt right. Although the Bevendean Downs parkrun is a relatively small event, the feeling of community here is big - and we always feel like being part of the whole family.
