The London A-Z Challenge 2015

Following on from our Tube Challenge in 2013, Monopoly Challenge in 2014, this year it’s the A-Z Challenge. Visit up to 26 London landmarks from A to Z in five hours on Saturday June 6th, 2015.

Similar to our previous challenges, teams take part to try and visit as many as they can. We set off at 10am from Liverpool Street Station and rush around London until 5pm where we meet at Covent Garden. There will be two breaks during the day so the actual time spent on the challenge is 5 hours.

It’s open to anyone who wants to take part in teams of approx. 4 people so please spread the word. All the details are on our A-Z Challenge page and you can register your team there, too.
