Something Different

Post by The Orange One » 30 Dec 2019, 20:22

I'm not sure whether this should even go in Alternative Challenges - please move it if you consider it should be moved!

Saturday 1st February will see a challenge different from any that have gone before it... welcome to the London IKEA Challenge. The aim? Using scheduled public transport, visit all five London IKEAs (Croydon Ampere Way, Greenwich Peninsula, Lakeside, Tottenham Meridian Water, Wembley Neasden) and complete a task at each one.

The five tasks will likely include getting something to eat and buying something relatively cheap given the Swedish name alone... but certainly not just those two!

The time starts when officially declared at IKEA Lakeside, and ends when you walk through the doors of the pub.

Start time: 1045
Start location: IKEA Lakeside
Possible parkruns: Thurrock, Harrow Lodge
Finishing location: Penderel's Oak (Holborn or Chancery Lane)

Further details will be provided at the start... hope to see some people there!
All London buses: 23 hours 25 minutes (with Adham, David, Josh and Tangy)
Holds some alternative challenge records. Not sure which ones.
