Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

Is TfL Rail included in the second envelope? (it is a separate category in the generator)

Re: CiN 2018 - 16th November

You should make your own parkrun. Just run up and down the corridors at Green Park a few times and you'll soon get to 5km!

Re: Could one train travel the entire tube network?

There has never been a connection to the Northern line at Tufnell Park, it would be a very steep gradient if it existed! There used to be a connection from the Goblin to Kentish Town NR which I think is what you are looking at. However there is a connection between Northern and Piccadilly at King's ...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December

Stonebridge, Canons, Belsize, Woodside, Tufnell, Royal, Moor, Elm, Wimbledon and Newbury have been used so far. Maybe we should try a zone 1 start this year to be different.

Re: All the terminals

Kings Cross is getting harder to do. Since the Thameslink changes there are now only 2tph that stop at Finsbury Park, anything else is non-stop to at least Stevenage.

Re: Cost of single bus journey on contactless?

If you're really quick on your parkrun you might be able to get the return journey for free with the Hopper fare :D

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Specifically stations, rather than the road itself. There are currently stations called London Road (Brighton) and London Road (Guildford). Manchester Piccadilly was formerly called Manchester London Road, Leicester was Leicester London Road and Bicester Village was Bicester London Road. Carlisle Lo...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

Just to note that the Cannon Street Run is due to be a R15 this year, held somewhere close to 19 September. There seems to be three options of what we could do: 1. Round 1 of the 2018/19 championship starts from Cannon Street and doubles up as the Cannon Street Run. This would mean the Champions Twi...

No-one forces you to go and do a parkrun in zone 6, most starting stations wouldn't be particularly close to Dagenham. Anyway, there is still enough time to do the parkrun, have breakfast, and still make it to Goldhawk Road for the start time.

Re: FNC on a Saturday = ??

No stations are regularly closed at weekends, although most of the time there is at least one section of track closed due to engineering works so only a few weekends will work.

What's the Cannon Street Run this year?
R15 again so will presumably double up with Round 1 of the 2018/19 championship on 15 or 22 September.
