First run in 2008, the Ray White Chelsea Gift is a 100m sprint event in which all athletes race off staggered starts. The event is supported by our major sponsor, Ray White Chelsea.
The aim is to give every athlete an equal chance of winning. There are Junior (U6-U8) and Senior (U9-U16) categories. No regular competition is held on the Gift day. There is usually attractions on the day, such as a jumping castle and roving entertainment.
