5 top Goodgym runners joined Area Activator Simon for our 2nd official trip to the Stratford Olympic Park with all abilities running club Achilles International. Together, we had an abundance of visually impaired runners, bag drop supporters and guide runners meeting at the Westfield exit of Stratford Station, before battling some strong winds towards the West Ham stadium (our bag drop location).

It was awesome to catch up with our running friends- Andrew and Tim are currently in the depths of training for London Marathon. Chris Blackabee, Severine and daughter Siri also joined us after travelling from Belgium last week. Chris was featured on a smashing interview on the BBC about the Achilles International collaboration with London Landmarks Half Marathon next week.

Listen to the interview (from 45 minutes in) here:
