Sunday Stroll: Marathon checkmate

Half time at: Notting Hill Gate
Length: 8.3 miles.

Skate status: GO!
The Check Mate Skate we had previously scheduled for Sunday proved so popular weâ€™ve decided to postpone it until after the London Marathon. That way, any regular skaters that have taken Sunday off to jog around town sans-skate donâ€™t need to miss out.
Instead, this week, the Sunday StrollÂ is heading west to see what Portobello Market looks like without any tourists, because theyâ€™ll all be watching the marathon too. Although itâ€™s tempting to take advantage of the empty streets and skate down the famous Portobello hill, fears of bumping into Hugh Grant have forced us to play safe and have half time at Notting Hill. Please bring your own cake.
