Stop being so Gevin. Obviously you can't use the same person (or even same identical name) twice, but whether or not you can use an individual name part (John) more than once is up for discussion.

Audience definitely doesn't count. It's a "Countdown event" in a very real sense. Meeting people in the pub after a Co:event is, literally, part of a Co:event. Insane you could even think otherwise.

However, here's one for you - I'd definitely count your Marathon thing as valid.
