With Easter approaching (and a few weeks free), it's time to tick off something that's been on my mind for a while... the London UnderRound...

"UnderroundTM is an anytime running challenge of circa 42km visiting 42 London Underground stations totally on foot. The added twist is to go to all of the 42 platforms as well using the stairs or escalators, on the clockwise journey around London’s Famous Streets. The circuit has over 30km between stations and thousands of metres of climb/descent."

Start at Kings Cross, run to first station, go down into station, touch yellow line, run back up, move onto next station, repeat!

Not got a specific date, but would rather run this with a mate than on my own. Let me know if you're keen...

I think I'd file this one under "really bad ideas that nevertheless appeal to me". But I'm out.

Sounds like my idea of hell! Good luck anyway, let us know how you get on Jim.

wouldnt it cost quite a bit to get into all these stations?

Not that much with a day travelcard MM - £16.40 for the whole network zones 1-6, and less for fewer zones.

Sounds like fun. Organise it!
