Track Attack returned for our final January session- this time taking a trip to the wonderful Paddington Recreation Ground Track in Maida Vale. Our mini crew of Matthew, Paul and Emily took on the full 5km distance time trial on this busy community track.

Paddington Recreation Ground Track is an incredible venue in Westminster- completely free for anyone to use, and floodlit in the evenings and during the winter months. We were treated to a gloriously sunny Spring morning and perfect conditions for challenging your seasons best 5km times!

Wonderful running and some killer consistency on display by our 3 runners over the 12.5 laps. Upon completion, we visited Gail's Bakery for babka and coffee to celebrate a solid training session!

We will return to Victoria Park track on Sunday 13th February, so sign up here to get involved!
