We are proud to announce our 2nd event of 2015 held in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Hall, north Nottinghamshire following the success of The Longhorn earlier this year in April.

Choose from a race over 10k or 10miles, running along old military roads, cleared tracks through ancient woodland and grassed paths around the country estate. The 10k route is The Longhorn race in reverse, the 10 mile race is the 10k route with an extra 4 miles added through more of the estates ancient woodland. The route includes a few hills to offer a small challenge around the course in some of the most scenic Nottinghamshire countryside as well as the forest & past the lake. The elevation is on the downloadable map.

The Autumn colours should make this a race to remember in this natural area of beauty.The race 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 plantation, containing over 1000 Oaks most of which are over 500 years old! Look out for the Longhorn Cattle of Thoresby Estate, who usually roam free in the forest, in their restricted fields for the race.

We are also offering a 5k run / walk for all levels. It's a new course that takes you past the beautiful church at Perlethorpe, through woodland groves & back onto the main field in front of Thoresby Hall. This event can be a gentle stroll with the family or a race to get your 5km PB. The 5km race is 2 loops of the course. Please note that we have removed the 2.5km option.

TEAMS - There will be a team race on the 10k & 10mile events. Teams should be made up of 3 people to participate. Prizes will be given for 1st team back but also spot prizes for 5th team & 10th team & 1 random prize so that the race is inclusive no matter how fast - or slow - you run! Register as team leader - name your team & others can sign up on your team by finding you as they book on.
