Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

You run 5km round a zigzag queue in a bank lobby.

Re: Thinking out loud

The problem is the night tube doesn't serve Terminal 4 so for a Heathrow finish it doesn't really help.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

Why is it making an extra change onto the Bakerloo at the beginning instead of just going straight to Edgware Road (Circle)?

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

The first through train to Mill Hill East on a Saturday is the 2317 Kennington - Mill Hill East (via CX), arriving 2351. Admittedly that is probably not much use for an R15!

I seem to remember Hakan bringing a laptop along to one of the very early R15 challenges to plan his route?

I think that was for Round 5 (as we will be finishing at Greenwich)?

Re: Southern Daysave

I'd be very surprised if you could do all of Scotland in 2 days. Just the Far North and West Highland lines alone would take a large chunk of that time before you even start with the central belt.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

You can sort the list at https://wiki.parkrun.com/index.php/Anniversaries by start date.

Woodhouse Moor in Leeds is 4, then Richmond 5.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 3

I always download the PDF, crop it to zone 2 and print it on A4 paper. It ends up at an easily readable scale. I gernerally use that on R15 rounds that don't include NR, as well. I notice that a December 2018 version is available which includes the dotted-line walkable connections like the latest p...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

For me I think the problem is that as well as the length, the challenge is getting repetitive. Even with a different start station you end up doing similar things every year. Will probably give this one a miss in future.

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

DNF for me. Started OK then got to Hyde Park Corner to be greeted by a torrential downpour. Couldn't go back in the station as it was exit only and didn't particularly fancy trying to run to Green Park. Jumped on the first bus I saw which was heading up towards Marble Arch and decided that was enough.
