8 GoodGymers and a few Vegan Runners met at the iconic Parliament Hill athletics track. The task was simple: ensure the safe transport of the Running Out of Time climate relay baton to the St Andrew's Youth Club in Westminster. The baton had been on a long journey from Ben Nevis this past few weeks and we didn't want to be the ones breaking the chain. A special welcome to Shiv who joined the run for his first ever session.

I always forget how busy London is, and in the early evening rush hour of a sunny Thursday there were people EVERYWHERE. We snaked through Camden, to Oxford Street through the Mall and onto St Andrews, dodging pedestrians and being held at many a road crossing. What was meant to take 50 minutes took closer to 80!

We arrived just in time to catch the last 10 minutes of the England vs Denmark Euro 2024 match, which appears to have been for the best.

The relay continues its journey across the UK. You can get involved: - Sign up the GoodGym Team - Find your nearest stage - If in London, come to grand finale in Parliament Square on Thursday 4th July
