Rother Valley Running Festival

Ironically the flattest race in a very hilly area


Come along to do Rother Valley Running Festival with us! GoodGymers are coming from Camden, Islington, Southwark and Sheffield so far. Everyone is welcome :)

The following races are available:

  • Half Marathon or Marathon on the Saturday
  • 10k or 5k on the Sunday

Rother Valley Country Park is a 30 minute drive from Sheffield, we will take cars and cabs between us there on both mornings. We'll arrange a Saturday evening meal & drinks in Sheffield for everyone to come along to.

Full race details and to enter go here.

In terms of accommodation it's a matter of finding airbnbs or hostels you want to stay in together as groups. Please enter your details in this spreadsheet.

If you are up for going for a walk in the peaks then we'll be going out on the Friday lunchtime, alternatively you could go the day you're not racing. Local trains run hourly from Sheffield Station to various beautiful peaky locations.

Look forward to seeing you then!

By changing at Doncaster, I've got a £15 train from King's Cross on the Friday, which arrives at Sheffield at 12:49. (cheap tickets to return on the Sunday will be up in a day or two)

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
