Hi
you may use a volume axis field with a negative away from center value
or a radial field
you may put a goal object

Thanks Matt
But I can't group the instances because they are sequence of poses for a run cycle. If I group them they will all get instanced at one frame.

All done now thanks for the replies. It was mainly aim direction velocity after rotating the instances to face x axis and freez transformation
