The Chap Olympiad

Running annually from 2005, The Chap Olympiad has become Britain’s most eccentric sporting event, attracting Londoners to this now famous celebration of athletic ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases. Hosted by The Chap Magazine (a monthly journal celebrating tweeds, hat doffing and Martinis) and Bourne and Hollingsworth (the fellows behind Blitz Party and Prohibition), The Chap Olympiad is an eye-catching spectacle, full of oddball elegance and quirky panache.
