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.
And for a relaxing Tuesday evening yogabin the clubhouse at 7:30 & 8:45. Check your inboxes for sign up details 🙏🏻
There is also a road speed session: 3, 4, 5 or 6 x mile This gives an opportunity to do a lactate threshold session - by doing continuous laps of the route - & is good training if you want to do a longer speed session for marathon training. Meet st Sandilands at 7:25pm
Afternoon runners 🏃♂️🏃🏼♀️ Tonight at Croydon Arena we have 5 x 814m (starting a rep each 5 minutes). Warm ups at 7:15pm & reps starting at 7:30 🔃
