Isn't not having any engineering work anywhere enough of a twist already? ;-)
You may have spoken too soon - it looks like the RMT still plan to strike on the DLR that weekend. No doubt, using the disruption to the Marathon as their bargaining chip.

If DLR is closed it's still only about 1km away from Canning Town station.

The draw for this round has just been conducted and therefore I can announce the start station is HAMPSTEAD. Meet outside the station building.

No stampeding down the 320 stairs now!! :lol:
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Is that the actual number of stairs, or the number TfL say there are?

Are you aware, maybe you are, that the London Marathon Expo is at the ExCeL centre then?
Perhaps all the runners will be at the Parkrun on their way to the exhibition.
I doubt too many runners will be at the parkrun only an idiot would do parkrun and an R26 the day before a marathon.

Oh wait I did 4 years ago.

See you all Saturday.
