The task was to run and take a photo of something that you enjoy or appreciate seeing. Could be a flower, tree, building, statue, view, car.. anything! We will found some little gems for each other in barnet . I hope you can find an idea for your next run. Thanks to all the people that have contributed.

For my highlight I ran to my new happy place which is a quiet little pond in a tiny bit of green space in Holloway. Visited at the weekend and spotted a few there were thousands and I could have watched them for ages. To make it even better it has a great three word address!


Happy Sunday team 😊 Here's my highlight... Hidden behind bushes and fences near Primrose Hill is this train tunnel portal on the line out of Marylebone. Apparently it was London's first train tunnel. Dan

My local highlight is Golders Hill Park.:)) The park is really picturesque and peaceful. There is also a zoo, where you can see donkeys, lemurs, deer and other animals. 🦌🦝🐎 🐿️ If you haven't been there, I highly recommend visiting :


Here’s my happy place! It’s the drinking fountain at Highgate Woods. Which is my absolute favourite place to run - I love seeing it at all times of year and how it changes. The bluebells now are particularly lovely. I know it’s Haringey not Barnet so it’s a bit of a cheat.... but we’ve done it for GG Barnet tasks so I figured that was ok...?

Highgate woods fountain What three words - meals.noted.remark. And my selfie, minus GG t shirt which I forgot 🙄

Hello! Here is my highlight run in Hampstead garden Suburb near Hampstead Heath extension. It’s a great place to run/walk and explore. If you are a Harry Potter fan you may like highlight moment in Barnet. Can you guess?
