Taking and completing a Central Line walking challenge from Epping to Ealing Broadway to raise money for charity

Fundraisers have walked 36 miles, the length of the Central Line from Epping to Ealing Broadway and have raised over £2,000 to support the work of Tommy’s, a pregnancy and baby loss charity which funds research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.

As well as 36 miles, the total number of stops was 32 as they travelled above ground along the Central Line route from East London to West London

Announcing the challenge on Reddit, u/sainttomm said: “Fresh from last year’s 33 mile walk along the route of the Metropolitan line my friends are at it again, and are doing their NINTH tube line walk today! Dave and the team attempting to tame the Red Beast have just started walking at Epping.”

My friends are walking the entire length (32 miles) of the Central Line today for Charity! Please show them some love!

Over 74,000 steps later, the walkers got to West London and Ealing Broadway.

Announcing the completion of the walk, u/sainttomm said: “Amazingly, over 14 hours after setting off from Epping, Dave and Mac made it to Ealing Broadway in one piece! Legends! Nip tagged along in the middle too, providing much needed samosas for fuel!”

They did it! Dave and Mac walked 78,000 steps and 36 miles end-to-end of the Central Line for charity!
