The Road League for 2021 is available at .


News from the Keyworth Turkey Trot people: they are planning to hold the race on Sunday, 12 December with entries opening on Monday, 11 October.


Sad news from the organisers of the Dovedale Dash that the race cannot go ahead this year, as the National Trust and Peak Park would wish to limit numbers to 200 (and there are usually around 1500 participants so this would be impossible to do). However, the 2022 Dash is planned for Sunday, 2 October 2022.
