Went early to avoid congestion along the canals and south bank. Lost at Maida Vale, lost at Woolwich, climbed over a fence near the o2 as there was no way out unless I jogged back two miles, lost near the greenway... too many closed roads, gates and diversions. And after previous attempts at FKTs - I learnt the quickest way on the course would be to take your phone out and check directions rather than run around aimlessly. Would return again to redeem myself! Moving time was actually 5:19:25... shows you how many times I had to check directions! Also appears my gpx track was a bit wonky along the Thames and through the foot tunnel so measured short.
Ran out of water as well but I didn’t want a self supported label so last 5 miles parched!!!
