This line sees a route going from the north of London (Stanmore) and ending at Stratford in East London. More famous now due to it being the home of the 2012 London Olympics, and the Westfield Shopping Centre. 
The purpose of this route it to run from station-to-station, trying to stay true to the line, as if it was above ground. This obviously hits a snag around Canada Water and North Greenwich, where the route doubles back on itself to continue the journey to the next station.

From Stanmore it's downhill, and from there, there is the odd steep-ish incline between a couple of stations but once you're near the city. the route becomes pretty flat. The only chore on the legs in the later stages is on the Greenwich Underpass between Canary Wharf and North Greenwich. 

You run through several different areas of London along this route, seeing how it all changes as you get nearer to the city and there is a sense of wonder once you reach the city. It's especially a good feeling once you see the Thames after arriving at Westminister Station. For any who hasn't explored parts of the out boroughs of London, or indeed, the inner parts. This line can bring out the running adventurer in you.
