I remember reading in Runners World a couple of years ago about a couple of fellas who created their own London Marathon. They would run the streets of London via underground tube stations, when they reached a station they would race down to the platform edge and then race back up to the streets to continue their Marathon till the next station and so on (around 20 stations or so ) . I remember reading that they had their own course map advertised on a website and a cult following of runners would race the course at their own will and record their own times and eforts and place them on the website. Anyway, Im interested in running this original course but I cant find any information on it. Can anybody help ?
