We were thrilled to bring back the first Track Attack Time Trial of 2022 to Victoria Dock Basin this Sunday!
9 Goodgym runners gathered outside the Oiler Bar (by the Crystal building, London City Hall), ready to run on our 1 mile or 5km out and back course, past the Excel centre and towards London City Airport. The loop is excellent for PB potential, flat and fast, with wide pavements for uninterrupted running.
Well done to Aine, Simon, John, Matthew, Jacqui, Emily and Laura on your top quality runs, and Thank you to Alison for helping me with timekeeping and for providing additional photography for the session!
If you are itching to give the time trial a go, feel free to join us next Sunday at Paddington Recreation Ground Track for Track Attack West!
On a beautiful brisk Sunday morning, 5 Islington Goodgymmers (including first timer Charlotte- welcome!) gathered at the clock tower in Caledonian Park, along with other hi-viz volunteers. Together, we set up the free weekly timed 2km loop for Junior parkrun, around the perimeter of the park, open for children from ages 4-14 years old and for participating parents (often working hard to keep up with speedy little ones!).
Emily arrived a bit earlier than the rest of us, and was offered the best marshalling role- tailwalker (with additional tiger tail)!
A smashing way to start a Sunday morning- we will be back again next week!
Junior parkrun is a wonderful free weekly timed 2km social running initiative, with events occurring all across the UK (and now the world!).
Children aged from 4-14 years old are allowed to run this safe looped course in Caledonian Park however they like, with the encouragement of friendly marshals, volunteers and parents.
The core team are always on the lookout for:
Course set-up and close down assistance
