The first race was in 1986 and was run from Kimberley Leisure Centre. It stayed at this route until 2015 when the decision was made to move out to Underwood. The popularity of running and of the Gallop made the race difficult to plan and organise, needing a lot of local service support and closing of roads. The route was changed in 2015 and ran on private land taking in some stunning scenery. It is undulating, but the views are well worth it. It proved so popular that we've continued to use the same trails since.
