Pretty much what I was gonna say! So unless anyone wants to run from Elm Park to Romford we should be all good to go for either date...

As for starting station - we've done Canons, Belsize, Woodside, Tufnell, Royal, Moor, Elm, Wimbledon and Newbury. Any requests?

If none, I propose Finsbury.

Finsbury neatly prevents use of the Number 4/Run to Tufnell Park :-)

9th December is a no go for me so is 16th Dec OK for everyone?

Looking at potential starting stations avoiding Central London we have; Chiswick, Ravenscourt, Holland, Stonebridge, Queens, Kilburn, Westbourne, Finsbury, Upton.... As far as I can work out unless any others I have missed??

Decisions, decisions.

As for parkrun, the obvious answer to this question would be Wormwood Scrubs or South Oxhey - but I'll let the actual experts decide of course...

Now to pick which of the 12 trains in my direction through the station I want to take!

Slightly annoying having to go through two other Park stations to get to the start! That said, I have an idea for a route forming....
