NEWSTEAD ABBEY DASH 5K
The Newstead Abbey Dash will be back again in 2021 when we hope to 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. We keep our entry fees as low as possible to make this an accessible event for both elite and recreational runners.

GEDLING COUNTRY PARK 10k
Following the success of previous race Redhill Road Runners 10k events at Bestwood Country Park & Gedling Country Park, we look forward to re-introducing our 10k in Gedling Country Park in 2021. Gedling Country Park 10k will be an undulating race around the traffic free trails of Gedling Country Park, Nottingham. The park is on the site of the old Gedling Colliery and offers fantastic views over the Trent valley.
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR UPDATES!
BESTWOOD COUNTRY PARK 10k
Redhill Road Runners organised an annual 10k September race in Bestwood Country Park, Nottingham, from the mid 1980s to 2011. The course was predominantly off road along established trails in the park, `undulating’ and with a fast, downhill finish. The Bestwood 10k became a highly successful event, for both club runners and families, including a regular `fun run’ for juniors, a series of drinking mugs as prizes, spot prizes and trophies. For a period, the club adapted a similar route as a race in the Nottinghamshire AAA Summer League Series.
