Discovering odd and unusual Britain
Every November, The Bridge Inn at Santon in Cumberland hosts the World’s Biggest Liar Competition.
Competitors have a maximum of five minutes to spin a suitable yarn without the aid of a script or any props.
The event is held in memory of the 19th-century publican,Will Ritson, who was renowned for his tall stories.
It is perhaps interesting to note that politicians,lawyers and UKA are prevented from entering the contest because they are considered to have an unfair advantage.
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
