Red Nose Day - Comic Relief Friday 24th March

Post by Going Underground » 04 Jan 2017, 12:24

So who is up for a group full network in fancy dress?

I am happy to use my T4 :arrow: Acton Town / Richmond route that was done on CiN day.... :P

I will have a think about it. Obviously it will depend on my fitness and work situation, also other events around that time as I am likely to have a busy weekend the one before and I had been considering doing the Monster Race again the following week (1st) - again, fitness permitting - so it may be too much in too short a period of time. But I will think about it, not least because (dependent on start and finish times) it may be possible for me to do that route from home with no overnight stay involved (catch the Rail Air bus to Heathrow first thing and SWT back to Reading at night).

Looked up timings - if you somehow miss the 0006 there's still trains back from Ealing Broadway, of course!! As the Rail Air doesn't seem to go to T4, you've got some small connections at T5 for an early 482 or 490 bus round to T4 as well.

Would be happy to play pointsman at Richmond and elsewhere for some of this - though maybe not starting at Heathrow again!

I rush ahead of the team to the stations, hold doors and direct to platforms, that sort of thing! I did so on the CiN challenge this year - but not having to get to Heathrow T4 at 0502 helps me loads, as instead of relying on a lift from another challenger and having to play around with night buses (27, train, 482 or C2, N9, 482) - then jumping on the 490 bus to Richmond through the dark I have the option of taking the 0509 Circle Line from Great Portland Street to HSK and then the 0531 District Line to Richmond. Much easier!

Whilst I would dearly love to do this, my guess is it will involve a lot of running :cry:

However, I'd be happy to be involved in meeting you at predetermined points to supply you with food & drinks to keep you going!
