The Hot Foot began in 1961 when Brian Bedford and Mike Ambler challenged each other to a race – the winner to be the recipient of one pint of beer to be paid for by the loser.
The number of entrants increased and each runner received a handicap in minutes and seconds so two trophies are competed for – the Hot Foot Trophy for the first runner past the post and the Bat out of L for Leather Trophy for the fastest time.
