This video is making the rounds and it’s pretty awesome. London commuter James Heptonstall wanted to answer the age old question: is it quicker to go on foot between two Tube stations or take the Tube?
James raced the Tube from Mansion House to Cannon Street in the City of London, a journey that featured climbing 75 steps, sprinting through the streets of London and passing through two ticket barriers (clearly he has an Oyster Card!).
It’s an amazing feat – does he make it in time? Watch the video and find out!
There’s no way I could possibly do this but it’s pretty amazing to watch. It helps that James is a trained athlete. They said they would consider doing another one if the video proved popular – it’s at 4,00,000+ views on YouTube so I’d say it’s a hit!
