7 guide runners and 2 VI runners met at Green Park underground despite the impending rail strikes making travel a little difficult. With the ratio of ~3:1 guides:VI runners there was opportunity for me to shadow Charlie, an experienced guide, for 1 lap of the park before guiding Ashfaq over 2 laps. I then shadowed and guided Tom for 2 laps including a challenging sprint finish. Everyone was so welcoming and put me at ease. I’m looking forward to guiding again and would encourage others to go along and give it a try.
