Thanks Martin - I had assumed it would be flat from the location but good to have confirmation.

Fulham Palace is extremely flat, 3 laps all on tarmac and has a nice café. Mile End is not exactly flat, it has a few tiny hills. It is an out and back (twice) and has a nice coffee van. Both have nice views of a river or canal.

Fab, thanks Kirsty!

At the moment Mr J is not confident with even small hills, so Fulham Palace looking the better option at the moment, although it's a few weeks away so he'll have built up more stamina and confidence by then so we'll see. Yes, the proximity of river/canal was a factor in considering those two :-)

Wasn't the Fulham Palace course revealed to be short a few weeks ago?

No, it was revealed to be short a long, long time ago - It was accepted to be short a few weeks ago. I heard it has been adjusted but not by enough! duck

I didn't realise that, have just looked on their web page now and seen its been remeasured. Are people still saying it's short Corona?

The hills are truly tiny, nothing to worry about!

I've done Fulham Palace a few times and it has always measured about 4.85km
