Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

So what is the actual Waterloo station that is in the R15 draw LU of NR? Waterloo (LU) will be the "start station" for R15 generator purposes and be one of the 15 challengers would need to visit. What are the chances that Waterloo will turn out to be the ONLY station south of the river in the 15? T...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Regarding Blackfriars (NR), it may be excluded from the 15, but is it banned altogether. For instance, could you catch a north-bound train if you use the northern entrance or a south-bound train if you use the southern entrance? You could argue that the train won't be crossing the river. Having see...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Sounds very tricky and intriguing :!: Maybe you can leave Waterloo by either mode, lets see what the BERC says... :?: Yes, it depends... if Waterloo is the first of the 15 then we need clarification - or is it just a pre-determined starting point and not (necessarily) one of the 15? If it's not one...

I'm still eagerly awaiting your inaugural run Michael, your name is on the database but yet to be activated :D
I believe Michael did have a go at Victoria Dock before the last R15 but decided against completing....
Yeah, Don't hold your breath!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Bit stupid to drive 120 miles to parkrun and thn the same back again, but Tawd Valley parkrun was fantastic. Proper course of two halves, the first half was an urban cyclepath under 4 underpasses, the second half was a narrow, muddy trail through a pretty river valley. Just the one lap too. I reali...

You can get from London to Malmo by train. I've done it, although not consecutively, but over the course of a week.
Apparently it was 14 hours travelling time on the trains (to Copenhagen) not including changes, so not practical for a day trip!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

So, I did a parkrun yesterday... Hope the trip didn't cost too much - are you staying in Sweden for a Sat run? You can get from London to Malmo by train. I've done it, although not consecutively, but over the course of a week. Eurostar to Brussels, Thalys to Amsterdam, ICE to Hamburg, ICE to Copenh...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

Chapter 1 So, sorry to all you parkrun enthusiasts, I don't think I'll be joining you. I like my Saturday lie-ins too much. At least you gave it a go Michael and not as easy as you would think to get around 5k - I did 9 months of training runs up to 2 miles before I attempted my first parkrun Yeah,...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

Chapter 1 Judge me if you want, I don't care... For the weekend, I was staying near the Thames Barrier, Pontoon Dock being the closest station, and I decided I'd lose my parkrun cherry at Victoria Docks. I thought I'd be alright, briefly, at the start. When I reached the U-turn at the end of the Ex...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

How do you join this club? Do you just need my parkrun ID? In which case, I'm now A5832391. Fantastic Michael, I will add you to the stats. You mention your number is now A5832391, does this mean that you also have a previous number? No, first and only time I've registered. I don't expect to troubl...
