Clough Taylor Run

Take part in the amazing Clough Taylor run!

This year there are two runs; one in Derby and one in Nottingham. The Clough Taylor People’s Run is in memory of two great men, Brian Clough and Peter Taylor and all that they achieved in football. First stop is Nottingham on Sunday 26th February at Holme Pierrepont and then to Derby two weeks later on 12th March at Elvaston Castle. At both venues there will be a choice of either 5km or 10km.

We have 10 free places to give away on a first come first served basis so email to apply. Or click here to visit the Clough Taylor Run website!
