Track Attack returned this morning on the winter time Victoria Dock course, and 5 Goodgymmers arrived to give it their best shot! An amazing effort, considering that many of our runners also participated at the Met League Cross Country fixture in Uxbridge yesterday as well.

Leo, Tracey and Ivy ran some incredible times over the 5km distance, while John and Simon assisted with bag drop, timekeeping and cheering duties. The course is pancake flat (running alongside the Excel centre, and towards London City Airport), with 1 major 180 degree turn. However, our runners did have to contend with a head wind on their return trip back to our start point (The Oiler Bar outside the new City Hall building).

Upon the completion of the run, and a suitable cool down, we all treated ourselves to some hot food and warm mulled wine at Heroica Lounge- a quirky mini-cafe bar hosted inside a repurposed London double decker bus!

Awesome running for 2021, everyone! Track Attack will return in January 2022 (in line with the January Challenge!).
