The Newstead Abbey Dash will be back again in 2020. We will again be hosting the Notts AAA County 5k Championships, but also look forward to those new to running trying this out as their first 5k road race.


Friday evening in the romantic grounds of Lord Byron’s stately home. A 1km descent to the abbey and lake is followed by a short shady incline then a steady stretch to the turning point near Newstead village, and back past the lake to finish on the green in front of the abbey. Prizes are available for overall, category and team winners. We keep our entry fees as low as possible to make this an accessible event for both elite and recreational runners.

Following the success of previous Redhill Road Runners 10k events at Bestwood Country Park, we were proud to announce a brand new race in 2015. Gedling Country Park 10k was an undulating race around the traffic free trails of the then newly formed Gedling Country Park, Nottingham. The park is on the site of the old Gedling Colliery and offers fantastic views over the Trent valley. There was also a free fun run, held over approximately 1 mile.

We thank Gedling Borough Council for supporting this local event to celebrate the opening of Gedling Country Park.
