1st Hakan & Patrick (66ft under) - 2h 56m 51s - How come two guys from Sweden managed to do this faster than the locals I'll never know? 2nd Erin & Peter - 2h 57m 5s 3rd Geoff 'n' Neil (they're not miffed - seriously) - 2h 57m 24s 4th Anthony (Dustmeister) & Adham - 3h 1m 59s
Here's a couple of pictures of the drinks in the pub afterwards.
Excellent T shirt from the Tubers - Tubas
And no entry would be complete without a little bit of dust:
From an outsiders point of view it was all good fun, even though I only turned up for drinks at the end. I particularly liked the way credit was given to all of the challengers including last year's winner, Steve Paull plus to Jack Welsby who was the previous all stations record holder.
Other highlights were not being able to escape Anthony selling copies of his CD (two quid a bargain), megaphoned announcements by Neil n Geoff as each person left the pub, Neil n Geoff's frequent insistence that they weren't trying to win, and the bemused look of the barmaid trying to clear the tables of loads of tube maps and used dustmasks.
There's now a full report of the day on Geoff's site n Neil will be reporting in full when his piccies are back from Jessops - although some cool black and white pictures on Neil's blog. You might also want to check out the discussions on the Tubechallenge forum.
