Organiser's Description

The Goose Fair Gallop, 10th October 2021

Distance: 10k 

Race start: 10:00 am

The ever-popular Goose Fair Gallop is celebrating its 35th year by moving to a new venue for 2021. This well-loved race will be held in the stunning surroundings of the Bennerley Viaduct and the Erewash Canal. The mainly flat route will take runners along canal towpaths and country trails, finishing beneath the newly restored 'Iron Giant' that is the Bennerley Viaduct.

The race will be run in a time trial format with runners starting in waves from 10:00am based on their predicted finish time. The conditions underfoot vary from gravel tracks, canal paths and un-kept trails to smooth pavement.

Entry numbers are limited to just 200 participants, and it will not be possible to enter on the day. All finishers will receive a medal and goodie bag.

Race HQ: Bennerley Viaduct, Awsworth, Nottingham NG16 2YH
