The Ring is Nigh!

So after 14212 emails we have come to a conclusion as to how to attempt the London Capital Ring run on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th May 2012 and courtesy of James it looks a little something like this:

Saturday morning:

Start/end at noon at Hackney Wick and follow sections as below. Saturday’s end point is Balham, midway through section 5 so circa 38 miles – should be about 5 or 6pm

We go out for food and drink like the load of sweaty old twats we will obviously be.

Balham then lets us all jump on a train/cab and be back in Wandsworth or Streatham in five mins

 

Sunday morning

Reconvene in Balham at 11am and go again for the remaining 39 miles and end back in Hackney Wick circa 6pm.

Quick celebratory pint or three and then Jamie, Steve and I jump in a cab back south…. Dave stumbles back to his place which is round the corner…
