the Organiser

The Cat Lane Canter starts at Newfield Secondary School playing fields and takes runners along undulating footpaths around the beautiful ancient woodlands between the school and Cat Lane. If it’s wet, you will get muddy, but we won’t charge you upwards of £40 for the privilege. With 5k and 10k options there’s something for every one whether you’re looking to complete your first 5k or are a seasoned trail runner looking to take on some exciting terrain without needing to drive out to the Peak District. There will also a fun run for all ages (£2 entry on the day only).

The event is jointly organized by Carfield Friends, Friends of Meersbrook Bank and Friends of Newfield and is raising money for all 3 PTAs. We aim to be a green event so please use public transport, cycle, walk or car share where possible and bring your own reusable bottle. Refreshments and food stalls on day so bring cash!

£9 entry on the day available if race not full.

More information:

Age categories:

Entrants for the 10k must be 14 or over, entrants for the 5k must be aged 10 or over on race day. Parental consent required for entrants aged under 18. Children aged 10-11 must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult who has entered the run.


Unfortunately this is a no dogs event

Other information:

We warmly welcome runners of all abilities. The event relies solely on volunteers, many of whom will be marshaling the course to make sure runners don't get lost and the event runs smoothly. So that marshals don't need to be out for too long, the course will close after 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you think you might take longer than this to run 10k, please consider entering the shorter course instead.
