We were treated to some beautiful summer sunshine for our monthly "Track Attack" time trial event- an all-abilities social run at Victoria Park track. It is wonderful to see so many Goodgymmers from all different boroughs come together to run (we had folks from Redbridge, Islington, Camden, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth this morning). We even had Daniel unexpectedly join us while he was on his morning long run (the promotional power of the red t-shirts should not be underestimated!).

Two distances on offer for this event: 1 mile (4 laps of the track), and 5km (12.5 laps of the track). We also had a top cheer squad on hand in the form of Linda, John, Tracey and baby Mali.

Thank you to Tracey, John, Stephen and Jacqui for helping with time keeping, lap counting and photography today.

Top class running today, even through the muggy airless climate. We always finish up with a coffee and breakfast at The Park Cafe too.
