Thank you for your feedback.

I have been torn today as to whether to carry on with this event and in response to comments made I have made the difficult decision to POSTPONE Round 4 of the Random 15 Championship until a later date.

Whilst I would like this event to take place as scheduled, the viability of it in this current virus outbreak has been eroded with several challengers ruling themselves out and not able to defend their position in the league table. Although I think the world has gone bonkers, I respect that many have concerns over corona virus not just on ourselves but with your immediate family too.

All future rounds remain as scheduled and hopefully we can resume the Random 15 Championship in due course.

Thanks for your understanding.

I'll be spending Saturday afternoon working on an FNC route, so it's ready for Tube Olympics Marathon in the summer. Any tips gratefully received. Current thinking is to do Heathrow -> NW corner to give best chance of completion, staying overnight at Yotel in T4 so can get optimum sleep before the start.
Not a plus one :wink:

Unfortunate that it has come to this, however I fully agree that cancellation is the best option. Who knows what lies ahead for the world over the next few weeks and months but I have no doubt that we will all see each other soon.

Good luck. Travel safe!

Just to add my support to your decision. In the current climate, it is appropriate to postpone this event. Stay well everyone.
