Inter-club Race Walking

WHAT IS A TURKEY TROT?
It’s an event where you estimate your time for the distance being walked and results are decided on how close you finish to your estimate.
The catch is that nobody is allowed to wear a watch, use timers on their phones or receive side line advice on their progress times!
