The “Track & Field” event took place at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in north London, which opened its doors to only a few, randomly selected applicants. Described as “Sports Day meets Takeshi’s Castle”, it was far from a typical race or competition for professional athletes. Instead, the twelve teams – all divided by their postcodes – consisted of creatives from the fashion and music industries, including Gully Guy Leo, Iris Law, Suspect, Boddy Ldn and Siobhan Bell, who all competed in the brand new Off-White x Nike collection.
