GoodGym "helps you get fit by doing good: we'll connect you with physical tasks that benefit your community and keep you fit. Run in a pack to work on a community project, do one-off missions to help vulnerable people or commit to visiting an isolated older person".

It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through an online platform and running. GoodGym is local in orientation and concerned with neighbourhood & community and sport

It was launched in December 2008 and is ongoing.
