The Thomas Theyer Foundation and The Grindleford Gallop
The Grindleford Gallop has kindly chosen to support the Thomas Theyer Foundation this year (2017). If you are running the Gallop and would like to raise funds for us, you can donate these at The Thomas Theyer Donation Page at JUST GIVING (a secure and tax efficient way to donate). If you would like to wear one of our T-Shirts please contact us. Please come and see us at the Pavillion after the race to find out more about our work.
Come and talk to us about “The Thomas Challenge”
Covering approximately 21 miles and 3000ft of ascent the course takes in the villages of Grindleford, Froggatt, Eyam, Great Longstone, Edensor and Baslow linking them together with paths, tracks and open moorland of the White Peak. Famous landmarks on the way round include the Riley Graves, Longstone moor, The Monsal trail and of course the stunning Chatsworth Park estate. The final high-level section along Baslow and Froggatt edges offers breath-taking views of the surrounding peak district.
Race Start Times
The walking participants can start at any time after 7am, with the latest recommended start time being 9.30am. The runners are then started in mass start at 10am.
