The Longhorn is back Sunday March 6th 2016-  Choose from 5k 10k, half marathon, full marathon or 60k Ultra set in private areas of Sherwood Forest & the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Hall; a Grade1 listed 19th Century country house in north Nottinghamshire.

Running over old military roads, cleared tracks through ancient woodland and grassed paths around the country estate. The route includes a few hills to offer a small challenge around the course in the most scenic countryside & forest. The elevation is noted on the downloadable course map.

Nothing looks more beautiful than the sunlight streaming through the leaves in this natural area of beauty. We have devised a race that takes you into Nottinghamshire's National Nature Reserve, through private areas that were once part of the 10,000 acres Royal Forest of Sherwood where the woodland is dominated by native Oaks as well as other native trees including Silver Birch, Rowan, Holly and Hawthorn. The reserve is also the site of Europe's oldest Oak tree woodland, containing over 1000 Oaks most of which are over 500 years old! It is here that the Longhorn Cattle of Thoresby Estate now roam freely, although being a very docile breed of cattle, they will be tucked away during our run race.

Race numbers and your timing chip will be given out on the morning of the race. Please allow enough time to collect these from Race Registration. 

The 60k Ultra will start at 8:30am, the Marathon will start at 9:30am  - 5k, 10k & half will start from 10:30am

The Ultra will have an 8 hour limit to complete the course & we may ask participants to finish prior to their final lap if they will finish after 4.30pm. This is due to daylight hours in March & to ensure course marshals can leave at a suitable time. Marathon runners must also finish before 4.30pm giving them a 7 hour time limit.
