Re: Random 15 Championship 2023/24: Round 3

Having trawled through all the previous R15 threads, I can confirm that this is NOT the first time that a team finished at the start station. Michael Churchill did this in Round 1 of the 18/19 season. For some reason, the start station - Cannon Street - came out a second time on the station list, requiring a second visit.

I've also discovered that in Round 3 of the 10/11 season, Tangy didn't visit the start station - Poplar - as he began by running to West India Quay and never went back to the start. Had he realised during the challenge he might have ended up finishing at the start station.

This was the National Rail twist round whereby National Rail stations within zones 1 and 2 were added into the mix (this included Overground and Crossrail stations).

Therefore the stations that needed to be visited were:
--Finchley Road (LU) [meet up/start]
--Edgware Road (Bakerloo)
--Hoxton
--Finchley Road & Frognal
--Swiss Cottage
--Highbury & Islington
--West Kensington
--Shadwell (NR)
--Kensal Rise
--London Cannon Street (NR)
--Turnham Green
--Drayton Park
--Euston (LU)
--Royal Oak
--Putney Bridge

There was a high turnout for this round, including three new teams. 26 challengers competed split into 16 teams. The finalised results are as follows:

16th: Andy & David JS- 04:47:15 at Finchley Road LU

Thank you all for attending. The next round is scheduled for the 9th March 2024. It will be a LU only normal round.

Tangy.
Perhaps trivial, but I believe Milo & Ethan and I are joint 11th rather than 12th!

Well thank you, we will definitely take 11th!
Another quick point, not meaning to create a fuss: His name is actually spelt "Yifan" not "Ethan"
