Not sure how it would work with an 11am start - yes, there's Night Tube but that's pretty useless for an FNC...
Here is our basic plan Rich....

We are also taking games / cards etc to play on the way around as there is only internal changes to deal with...

Rather than start early and head back for a couple of hours sleep we plan to start later and make full use of night tube and pick up Ken Oly Sat AM as we are planning to;

1) Complete full network
2) Do parkrun
3) Spoons Brekkie
4) R15
5) Pub!!! :P

• The key here is making sure we don’t miss the last MHE before coming down to Camden Town and then doing all the night tube stuff…
• Start at Hatton X (T4) as I can leave car at work
• Leave Wimbledon until Sat AM to pick up the West Brompton train to Ken Oly
• Leave Chiswick Park – Richmond until the last visit on Sat Am as can easily then get to Feltham / bus to Hatton X and dump games / other stuff in my car or Travelodge, Feltham if staying there
• I am currently working routes/timings through to calculate what time we need to start to hit the penultimate MHE train on Friday night / Sat AM, giving us some leeway if late to get the last train
• I estimate that we would need to depart at approx. 1100hrs

Hope all makes sense :!:

That is certainly an ambitious plan Kev! I am considering options atm, I may do a T4 start or I also have an almost circular route starting at Wembley Park...

Actually I don't think 1100 gets us to parkrun in time David, more like 0930 for this to work I think having punched some numbers through.....

This is an open invite to anyone that want to join us for all or part the day.... :)

We will be starting from Heathrow T4 @ 0906 (Those meeting at Hatton Cross the ETD from there is 0857)
Making full use of night tube we will then visit Wimbledon, Ken Oly, finishing at Richmond @ 0718 on Saturday

If you are coming and can bring along a game to play on the day that would be good and a small foldable table would be awesome if anyone has one :)

We wont be crossing the gateline to enhance the route in any way, but you may do this to grab refreshments and the like....

We really don't know but I imagine it will be one in West London that you have already done so wouldn't want to repeat..

Basically we are leaving our Saturday stuff in Travelodge Feltham and IF all goes well we will be back at Feltham Station at 0735 so doesn't leave us long to get anywhere...
We may well have to see where we are approaching parkrun time, do that then go back and finish off the route... keeping the clock running and not having left the network for purposes to gain an advantage within the actual route...

I suggest if you are not joining us for any part of this then just keep in touch on the mobile....

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!
