Don't you mean 2009? I presume you were prepared to divulge the 2009 route because it was obsolete, as it relies on a regular Olympia service.

With the secrecy of challengers these days, it's probably the last time a world-record-setting route will be made public.
However, with a tweak to accommodate for the evening Olympia, it is still theoretically possible to use the Labyrinth route to equal what until last week was the official World Record time.
Currently 4th place in the Bottle Challenge league table
Currently 3rd place Zone1/Zone 2 Challenge

Congratulations to Andi and Steve on achieving a stunning time and new WR, which is almost 30mins less than the WR we set last year. That is some achievement. And even more congratulations on proving to Guinness that you had successfully done it. Well done.

I was surprised by how relaxed the route was given how much under the WR it was. There were only a few tight changes all day, and I only needed to hold the door once (at Finchley Central, right in front of station staff, but only for about ten seconds

Thanks it was obviously tough speaking to one half of then record holders at zone 1 day knowing then the time wouldn't be long but then I did when that unmentionable person did break it!

Its been tough year 2015 wise this year has already been a thousand times I have officially retired only one challenge left to accomplish and a return some where

Out of interest, have Guinness agreed to tone down their requirements of a photo at every station after your exchange with them?

Thanks Clive - that's kind of you and very much appreciated.

I would suspect not, if anything it will probably make them emphasise this requirement even more in their rules.
