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.
For Tuesday 1st January 2013. The official finish time will be Midday which allows you time to run one or more parkrun races beforehand.
This evening you have a choice of 5x 800m (starting a rep every 5 mins) at Croydon Arena, warm up 7:15pm 🔁 OR Road speed session of : 6, 7 or 8x 700m: gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6943250 This is also a suitable for a lactate threshold session AND Yoga in the clubhouse at 7:30 & 8:45pm
Excellent work! We look forward to running the new route soon! twitter.com/hannahluffman/…
