For the official Zone One Day time you remain 3:03:05, however, assuming that you travelled to Southwark you can reset your watch and claim 3:01:44 for the Tube Challenge League Table Site.
One day I shall return!

Yeah I did, I was with Kevin until around Euston, and then between Aldgate and the end (finishing on the same train).

A big thank you goes to Tangy and Roger for organizing the day at such short notice and i've decided that I want to get involved with the R15 championship next season.
That's great news Sam they are really fun events and many new forum members have "cut their teeth" and met other people in our community for the 1st time on the Alternative challenges :D The R15 always comes up with a different set of scenarios each time and the championship has been a great success. The social side and meet up for discussusion afterwards is very interesting and enjoybale as the routes and finishing stations are always very diverse.
Caps off to Ric (tpfkar) for this brilliant idea which is now a regular feature of "Tubefest" week as well as the championship itself :D 8)

Thanks!! :D

I liked maintaining "pure" status for so long but zone one was good and I feel R15s will be as well. HOWEVER, you will not catch me doing this snake business or parks crap ;)

*Plus, I have Matts influence, else I would have maintained pureness* :lol:
