An  annual New Years Day fun event for club members celebrating a 4 mile race for the workers at Addington Palace held in the early 1900s.  The route is exactly 4 miles the rules vary but the general idea is to guess your own time,  run without a watch and the one closest to their guess wins.

To save having to record times,  we announce the finish time before the race, you decide when to start and the one closest to the stated finish time wins.

The official finish time is usually Midday which allows you time to run one or more parkrun races beforehand.
