Another proposed attempt

Post by Nigel » 27 Nov 2012, 08:22

Just found this JustGiving page for another full network attempt that is supposed to be happening this Friday: http://www.justgiving.com/luca2

He doesn't seem to have raised much sponsorship so far. Also it's described as a second attempt. Although he doesn't say how the first went, an internet search reveals that he did not complete.

Seems to be with the rise in Twitter and YouTube in the last couple of years, the amount of recorded attempts seems to be increasing. We need to spread the word!

I think we should probably do an advertising campaign on Facebook and Twitter to promote this site, hey why not? If you're sad enough that is.

Still a credible attempt. Might be worth contacting him.

250 is only really credible if there are huge disruptions on the network. Even when the central line flooded I did 254 :P

Hi Everyone,

I know this is pretty old but i stumbled across this today...I am Matt.


My first attempt was not completed - mainly due to lack of experience and knowledge (and i was quite unfit then so was absolutely shattered)
My Second attempt wasn't much better due to 3 signal failures on the day. 17hrs 59 i finished in the end

The charity page that you see listed above was only an addition to sponsorship forms. in all i raised approx £300.

Thanks Guys :)

Matt

Matt - do you know how many seconds it was, so I can add you to the top times list? If not, don't worry, I'll add you as 17:59:59.

Resurrecting an old thread, an odd discussion at work today revealed that a colleague is friends with Matt Dyer! It was a bit strange to mention 'tube challenging' and not have to explain everything. :lol:
