Welcome to the website for the 2022 Gate Gallop!

The 2022 event will take place on Sunday 26th June at the Anker Valley Sports Complex in Amington, Tamworth. We’re currently planning on the basis of there being some restrictions still in place relating to the ongoing COVID pandemic. It is an off road, traffic free event organised by the Peel Road Runners and is part of the Burton and District Summer League.

We will offer our usual line-up of events including the ~600 m Children’s run, a 4.4k Fun Run (ages 9 and above) and a 10k Race (ages 15 and over).

We are now inviting entries for the 4.4k fun run and the 10k Race.


The event has been run for over 25 years raising an amazing £100,000 for St Giles Hospice and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the Peel Road Runners and all past, present and future Gate Gallop entrants for their continued support!

If you are keen to get involved in 2022 and want some help getting fit, get in touch with the Peel Road Runners Beginners to find out when our next couch to 5k course is starting. As a club we’re currently unable to start these, but hope to bring them back either later this year (2021) or early in 2022.
