Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Easier on PC actually. https://running-challenges.co.uk/ Thanks Andrew, I've managed to set mine up using this link. My stats aren't very impressive as I only have 6 badges. I do like the links included to maps so you can see where you have run. I won't go out of my way to achieve any of the badges...

Nothing lucky about 'Single Ton' or 'Double Ton', you don't have either of those. :)

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

Twas a fun challenge yesterday. I made a few route errors but still managed to come joint-first! Notably, forgetting the Paddington to Lancaster Gate run, forgetting to check the branch of my Northern Line train and going the wrong way north from Kennington (Only realising at Borough!) and forgettin...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Dudley parkrun this morning- totally brilliant. Two laps of a running track, followed by a canal towpath (going under and over bridges), a slippy downhill and uphill through a wooded nature reserve, through which is an abandoned railway line where you literally have to hop over the left behind track...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I'm pleased to say that Watermeadows parkrun's defibrillator was provided by Linford Wood parkrun, after we were able to donate one following the successful rescue of a parkrunner last year. I was therefore present in order to take some promotional photos for Aero Healthcare to use of the handover. ...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Well done Andi- great running. You timed your visit to Dartford Heath almost to perfection, as you got the 2nd slowest ever first finish there.

But you know what they say. A win is a win, except at parkrun when a first finish is a first finish :)

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I could easily have been absent on Saturday thanks to a training course at 09:30. However I managed to volunteer to set up the signs and took the first marshal position, to ensure I was finished at 09:15 and able to get to work on time.

Afraid I was a DNS too. Just not in the right place to do it today. I normally love the Parks Challenge.

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

Plenty of information buried on this forum. Do lots of reading. Study the geography of the lines on Google Maps. Use the working timetables if you need very specific timings. Know that attempt #1 won't go to plan and improvisation skills improve with time.
