RETURNING FOR 2020 THE GEDLING COUNTRY PARK 10k DATE TO BE ANNOUNCHED SOON!
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.
