Fancy a spot of altitude training in the city? This is London's highest running track.

White Collar Factory opened earlier this week and we at SPIKES HQ have major office envy. Located overlooking Old Street Roundabout, right at the heart of London’s Tech Belt, and designed by renowned architectural practice Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), it features a 150m rooftop running track.

The track loops around the building, is protected by a 2 metre high glazed wall – so you're not missing out on the amazing view – and even has some corners for stretching and other exercises.

There's no all-comers record for the track in place yet, but for reference, Usain Bolt holds the 150m world best with 14.35. He didn't have to negotiate his way round several tight corners mind.

Who's up for a quick 5 miler at lunchtime tomorrow? That's just under 54 laps. Easy.
