The Gallop sold out amazingly fast so thank-you for your support. Due to a technicality with not being able to hold credit card details for more than 3 months we will be opening a waiting list on December 11th.
New for 2022/23 we are excited to announce that the Gallop is one of the local trail running events taking part in the Rab and Outside Winter Race Series. This means some excellent prizes from Rab and Outside and more yummy tray bakes from the Outside cafe!
Congratulations to Jack as fastest male at 2:22:32 (new new course record!) and Florence as fastest female at 3:02:10 (10 minutes quicker than last year).
There’s photos in our gallery and on our Facebook page along with a video. Many thanks to photographers Mr Petts and Matt.
As always many thanks to the volunteers who make the event happen. In addition to those that you see on the day – such as those at the start/finish and marshals en route – there’s also the kitchen staff, cake bakers, soup ingredient chopper uppers (including some school pupils), sweepers, route markers and parking marshals.
Thanks also to the good people of Grindleford who tolerate the influx of cars and runners and the sponsors:
The trails are nice and muddy thanks to all the recent rain. Long range forecast is looking settled (famous last words!).
Race information will be emailed out Monday evening. Entry transfer deadline is Monday midnight.
There are a handful of running places that have become available so please go to the Fabian4 entry site if you want to grab one! Looking forward to see you many of you next Saturday, love Team Gallop X
EXCITING NEWS!!! Our new prize sponsor this year is Outside who have their store in our neighbouring village of Hathersage. They have teamed up with Montane to kindly offer first place prizes to ALL male and female running age categories = a Montane Gecko VP 5+ running vest worth £100. Second prizes are a £15 Outside voucher and third prizes a 1L Nalgene water bottle. What an incentive to run faster!
