Competing in track and field meets plays an important part in the London Pacers running culture. Some Pacers compete in track and field meets locally, and some travel all over the world. Some of our members hold Canadian and Ontario masters records in track events. The Pacers rent an indoor track during the winter. In recent years, club members have organized relay teams to run in local meets. Some members ran track in high school or university, while others tried it for the first time as masters.
