PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE EVENT IF YOU HAVE NEW COVID-19 SYMPTOMS: THESE MIGHT INCLUDE A HIGH TEMPERATURE, NEW COUGH OR HAVE LOST TASTE/SMELL
Please read further below for detailed Covid-19 Safety Measures -
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 as well as the forest & past the lake. 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. The 2020 course was amended due to Covid 19 restrictions & will return to the usual loop for 2021 but the track through the wood has now been closed off so we are on tarmac for that part. BThe route takes you on some grass past the beautiful church at Perlethorpe, on tarmac through the village & 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.
Canicross entries & Nordic Walkers are very welcome. Please ensure you enter under the specific category you wish to be with. Separate start times to help avoid congestion and over taking. Canicross races are not under UKA rules & do not offer EA affilliated discount.
BONUS TEAM RACE - As well as running individually you can team up with others as an extra bonus race! Your time can count towards a team race on the 10k & 10mile & half marathon events. Teams should be made up of 3 people to participate. Trophies will depend on the race distance. They may be given for 1st team back but also spot prizes for 5th team & 10th team & there's ALWAYS 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. You will still get your individual chip time & place.
Race numbers will be posted to your address given at point of entry 7-10days before the event . Merchandise will be collected from Race Registration.

(Covid-19 Safety Measures
We are currently planning the additional measures required. Your safety & enjoyment of the day is our priority. This guidance will be updated regularly & emailed to all participants before race day.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE EVENT IF YOU HAVE NEW SYMPTOMS: THESE MIGHT INCLUDE A HIGH TEMPERATURE, NEW COUGH OR HAVE LOST TASTE/SMELL
There are less runners this year (mainly due to the huge number of 2021 Spring events which moved into September / October dates). Race Village will be set up so that people gather with more space between runners. There will be separate start times for each distance. You will be encouraged to run the course with fastest runners going first to avoid mass overtaking - this is usual practice at our events. Runners will leave the start line in small waves to spread out runners but you can still run with friends socially distanced. Runners will leave in single file or in pairs but not in a huge mass group (so please leave space between each runner). timing is chip time -not gun time so the race winner may set off later than 1st few runners at front of the pack.
THERE WILL BE HAND SANITISER STATIONS AVAILABLE ALL AROUND RACE VILLAGE & AT WATER STATIONS. PLEASE USE THEM AS YOU ENTER THE VENUE FROM THE CAR PARK & AGAIN AS YOU LEAVE. PLEASE USE THEM BEFORE & AFTER USING TOILETS. PLEASE USE THEM BEFORE & AFTER COLLECTION OF YOUR MERCHANDISE / T-SHIRTS ETC.
All race numbers will be posted out to you 7-10days before the race so there will not be a need for registration. T-shirts / buffs & merchandise will be collected on race day at the event.
Our charity bag drop will not be available in 2021. The car park is 350-500m from Race Village. Please be prepared to tie a race skin / hoody around your waist if necessary & to carry your own water.
There will be a trophy presentation after the races & trophies can be posted out for those that prefer not to stay at the venue with others.
There will be additional safety measures & reminders to maintain 2m distance wherever possible & we'd like participants to be patient & respectful of each other in carpark & at race village to keep everyone safe & work to government guidelines.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer pacers on this event as this would encourage larger groups of runners but this service will return for 2022!
We are very sorry but due to COVID-19 restrictions we cannot offer sports massage at this event in 2021. This service will be back in 2022!
Water stations will be on course for this event. Sadly we can't allow individuals to fill their own re-useable water cups as we prefer. Marshals (in full PPE) will fill water into compostable cups & leave them on tables for you to collect. Marshals cannot hand out water directly to participants. Please dispose of the cups into giant waste bags nearby & 200m further up the course. HOWEVER we strongly advise you to bring your own water/ gels / snacks to this event.
