As this could be my first tube challenge in 2 years I want to aim for a good time/PB, so I'm really not keen on the circular route. I also get home much earlier with a NW finish.

Why not join us at the start and then head off at some point during the day :idea:

I can send you the route if you like which tries to do Richmond before Ken Oly :arrow: Edgware / Hammersmith :arrow: Wimbledon / Morden :arrow: A small circular central part :arrow: Upminster :arrow: West Ham :arrow: E & C :arrow: Marylebone (For Chiltern to NW corner) around 1130 hrs.. So you may be able to work something around that start?

Kev

Can you let me see a copy of the route so I can assess how much running's involved, and therefore how likely I am to be fit in time?

Many thanks
