I've just remembered Neil is currently away with Lorna on trains (according to his twitter), so suspect he's on holiday ...
Bloody people, travelling round the country by train!

Looks like it'll take a bit longer than anticipated to get Londone (although I trivially did it back when Bushy was the only one). Hazelwood would be outside London I think?

Hazelwood has been classed as south east by the site i say anything in the zone 1 to 9 is classed as London but its a question of definition. Its tempting to do Victoria dock but I wait as I'm planning dolgellau.

For Londone I'm going by parkrun's definition, although I appreciate it could be taken in other ways

I think parkrun might be using that definition, although I haven't checked. Some people go by "within the M25"

Yes, the Parkrun website uses the administrative boundary of Greater London.

The only one that is arguable is Riddlesdown, where part of the course is in Greater London and part in Surrey.

PB Klaxon!! Finally beat my PB from August 2015. Did so at Linford Wood too which I don't usually describe as a PB course due to it being not-flat and twisty-turny. (and slightly long by a few metres!!) Thrilled to have done this :)
