Burton District Summer League – BDSL

The BDSL is a group of 9 races which Peel take part in from April to September with other local clubs in Staffordshire – see below.

To score points, we need to have at least 8 men and 4 women taking part in each event, so please make a space in your diary for the below races if you can. They are a great team environment and you may have chance for a prize in your age category!

Run in the Forest – 5 Miles
A lovely run across trail paths and roads around Conkers with a couple of short cheeky hills. Run and marshalled by South Derbyshire Road Runners.

Run in the Forest Entries – Sunday 7th April 2024 – Race Complete

Uttoxeter Half Marathon
A challenging but enjoyable road race which starts and ends at Uttoxeter racecourse. A good mixture of uphills, downhills and even the odd flat bit. The definition of an undulating course. Run and managed by Uttoxeter Road Runners.

Gate Gallop – Peel Road Runners – 10km
This is Peel’s big event of the year – our home race! We put on a child’s race, a 5km fun run and the main 10km. We also raise money for St Giles, putting on a fun day including a cake stall and tombola. So even if you can’t run we always need help setting up, marshalling and taking down the course.
