Athletics club. It was formed at a meeting in the Vivian Hotel in Peckham Rye. The founders were ex-members of the Peckham AAC, who had left that club after an argument about smoking in the changing room. The original object of the club was, 'To enable athletes by means of cross-country runs, to continue training during the winter months'. Admission to the club was reserved exclusively to "Gentlemen Amateurs”.
