Could you be the Brixton bolt?

The fastest man, woman and child will be crowned in Brixton this autumn in the inaugural 100m race, the Brixton Bolt, supported by the Brixton Blog.

Tom Shakhli came up with the idea after the Olympics, inspired by the adulation Usain Bolt received in Brixton during the 100m final.

Details of the race have now been revealed, after Lambeth Council gave permission for the 100m to take place on Pope’s Road from 11am on Saturday October 27.

You need to live in Brixton to be able to participate and should email if you’d like to enter (though participants can turn up on the day too). Entry costs £1.
