I have spent the last week or so looking at route options for a Le Jogg, its complicated with so many options.
Rather than the normal route book may I suggest "Way Points" for lunch and accommodation thus allowing those participants to choose the roads they want to drive A, B or motorways.
Also allows those that want to visit local attractions on route to deviate as they wish.
Your thoughts please.

Lets put this out there for comment.
Everyone has to get to the start at Land End and everyone has to get back home from John O Groats, those from the UK will go up and down the length of the UK twice.
We have a 3 or 4 day option, I have spent some time dividing the route as shown below, this can be fine tuned a few miles here and there. As I previously mentioned I suggest "Way Points" at which we can meet eat and stay over together. I will work on more detailed routes, stopovers and places of interest etc after we agree 3 or 4 days.
The route timings below avoid motorways and assume no Roadworks weekend traffic etc.
Your thoughts.

3 Days Avoiding Motor ways:
Leg 1: Lands end to Worcester (317 miles)  6 hours 30 min.
Leg 2: Worcester to Gretna Green (250 miles) 6 hours 31 min
Leg 3: Gretna Green to JOG (361 miles) 7 hours 30 min.

4 Days Avoiding Motor ways:
Leg 1: Lands end to Bristol. (199 miles) 4 hours
Leg 2: Bristol to Lancaster (224 miles)  5 hours 45 Min.
Leg 3: Lancaster to Alexandria (200 miles) 5 hours
Leg 4: Alexandria to JOG (269 Miles) 6 hours

Back in 2007 when the 3 mad amigos were planning the first 3ma in Ireland, we decided it should be a 4 day event and so it's been ever since. I'd therefore obviously say that the proposed Le Jog 3ma20 should also be a 4 day event. I know people in the UK might have a very long drive to the start or back home at the end but it's no different to driving for 2 days through Europe to get to a 3ma and then driving 2 days to get back home at the end. For most UK people, the drive to the start and maybe even at the end can be done in a day. Our European and Irish visitors can take different sea crossing to the start and at the end to limit their driving.

So, I say go for the 4 day plan. The only change I'd make to the proposed 4 day plan is to extend the first day's driving to Gloucester and avoid Bristol altogether by going via Portishead.

Im currently working in Qatar with little time to progress this.

 Current basic plan is:
4 Days Avoiding Motor ways:
Leg 1: Lands end to Glouscester. (236 miles) 4 hours
Leg 2: Gloucester to Lancaster (175 miles)  3 hours 15 Min.
Leg 3: Lancaster to Alexandria (200 miles) 5 hours
Leg 4: Alexandria to JOG (269 Miles) 6 hours

If someone can take up the planning it would be much appreciated.
I think 'Way Points' are the best way to go, and participants responsible for arranging their own overnight stays in the chosen locality.
