Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

we could all help Neil by telling him the info rather than having him look up 4-5 weeks worth. Neil, i'm on 204 parkruns i've not PB'd at all recently, i AM thought now in the 45... age category (have been since last year!), and I ran Hoblingwell this morning, to take me up to 67 venues.

Re: national rail every station

well how fabulous .. this thread has been here over a year, and I only just found it. Had no idea it was being discussed here. the reason I post now is because someone emailed me last week - who lives outside of the UK - who is planning on doing them all in the fastest time possible, etc.. next year...

Re: Third attempt - Friday 30th June

This thread is intruiging. I've read it through twice and I can't see why I get drawn into this. Oxpeter didn't mention me once.

I hardly ever post on the forum anymore, but I still get dragged into things - how bizarre.

Re: Giant Human BR logo

Has anybody else had an email from a former FNC GWR holder about an attempt to create the BR double-arrow logo in human form? I'm slightly surprised by it as I'm not sure where he got my email address from! I sent it to everyone that backed us on Kickstarter, and then to my 'tube geeks' subscriptio...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Well done Al, and thanks Neil for update!

i noticed one correction needed, you've got my France parkrun time (of 28:58) from Bois de Boulogne under Matt Scrivs list of times, instead of in mine, so he has two times there and i have none! Tiny thing, i grant you... :roll:

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

York is super flat .. it's the path that runs alongside the racecouse. However being April 1st, everyone lined up at the start .. and then the organisers told us they wanted to "move us" .. 500m down the path where they made everyone (600 people) turn around and run the course in reverse. It was a r...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Thanks Neil, i did wonder who would get the nod between me and Crypto! (Crypto, who are you anyway? I have no idea...) My aim now is to get a 24:30, I'd be happy with that and catch up with Mr Xcooler123! It's nice to think that in over six years I've been doing parkruns (and had two injuries along ...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

well done Kev! consistency at a familiar course has it benefits... Top running, everyone. it's now that nice spring time of year - tube challenge weather! - not too cold, and not too hot to get some good running times in!
