The St Thomas’ 7 Road Race was first run in 2008, with just over 100 runners.

The race utilises St Thomas’ school for its race HQ and provides those taking part with a challenging 7 mile run around the quiet and scenic surroundings of Upper Tean, Freehay and Great Gate.

The course has a number of climbs with fast decents. it takes in quiet rural lanes, the last mile is down hill but save a little for the last 200 meters (see map of course)

The race starts on Gorsty Hill, a 5 minute (signed) walk from the school. Runners will be walked to the start at 10.20
