Welcome to the website for the 2021 Gate Gallop!

We are very hopeful that the 2021 event will go ahead. It is planned to take place on Sunday 27th June at the Anker Valley Sports Complex in Amington, Tamworth. It is an off road, traffic free event organised by the Peel Road Runners and is part of the Burton and District Summer League.

This year the format and associated rules are subject to change, in line with local or national restrictions, but at present we intend to offer the usual line-up of events including a 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!

We would like to offer Next for their continued support for our event. Once again this year they have provided some amazing items for the goody bags!
