Zone 1 Challenge Cup 2018- Friday 1st June.

With less than two months to go until the challenge, it's time to formally announce this year's Zone 1 Challenge Cup.

The aim is simple: visit all 64 stations on the London Underground system that are within Oyster card Zone 1 in the fastest time. You will be competition with other teams (and the trains themselves) for the coveted Zone One Challenge Cup.

Full details of the event (including meet up location, timetable of the day, rules of the challenge and after event quiz) can be found on the dedicated website at www.explorerticket.co.uk/tubechallenge/zone1cup.htm

Even though this is an open invitation event, it would greatly assist me if you notify me of your attendance at the event (even if you are at this stage a maybe). Contact details are on the website (see link above) or if you have me on social media, message me.

Hope to see many of you there, be it a first timer or a regular challenger that shows up year after year.

Thanks
BOZO (Boss Of Zone One).

I'll be flying in from Malta on the morning of the event so if I look tired, It's because I'll have been up since circa 3 am UK time, maybe a bit earlier!

Just to note that Northern line Bank branch trains will not be stopping at Kennington from 26th May until mid-September. Charing Cross branch trains will continue to stop as normal. Probably won't affect most zone 1 routes, but might be more relevant for the R15.

Sadly, I probably won't be able to put in my annual appearance this year. Like I couldn't last year.

Maybe it'll be a tri-annual appearance for me.

Have a great time anyway!

Given that I almost certainly won't be fit for a FNC by the end of May, I guess I'll have to put that off until at least September...

Not having Bank branch trains stop at Kennington affects a number of other challenges that individuals might attempt in that period (Z1Z2, SOTR, SLAM, Mouse).

What's the Cannon Street Run this year?

R15 again so will presumably double up with Round 1 of the 2018/19 championship on 15 or 22 September.
