The 2013 Gaddesby Gallop was held on Saturday 14th December 2013 and saw a record field of 145 runners. Conditions were near perfect – dry, not too cold but a little muddy underfoot. There’s a great video to watch thanks to our friends at Indigo Blue Media.
All the entrants tackled the course’s obstacles – firstly the especially aromatic dew pond, followed by a 10m drainage pipe and finally the brook crossing before a dash through the mud to the finish.
All of the entrants and the 40 strong team of marshals made it a great day!
Following the race, one of the runners told us “That was bonkers but brilliant,” which really sums up what the Gallop is all about!
The trophies were awarded as follows:-
1st Place Mens – Ashley Miles Sphinx RC 34.03
2nd Place Mens – Nick Cobley Roadhogs 34.14
3rd Place Mens – Sam Stevens Wreake Runners 34.42
