Once referred to as the ‘Curny Banna Stakes,’ a name derived from the prizes won. Every competitor receives a festive season prize of Christmas cakes, currant buns, yule logs or shortbread etc.
The first mention of a Xmas relay in Wilton Lodge Park was in the minutes of a Harriers committee meeting held in October 1948. It was decided to hold a team relay race on Christmas Day and that all runners would receive a prize.
This fun event is suitable for everyone and all ages, with teams picked on the day. Fancy dress optional but definitely encouraged.
