The award winning event Thoresby Leaf Kick is back for our 8th annual autumnal trail run in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park, north Nottinghamshire offering distances of  5k, 10k, 10 mile & half marathon. 

NEW IN 2022 - A 30k & 40k distance have been added to the mix.

30k = 3x 10k laps. 40k = 4x 10k laps.

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.

The 10k route is the same as well known 'The Longhorn' but in reverse. The 10 mile race is the 10k route with an extra 4 miles added through different parts of the ancient woodland. Half marathon is 2 laps of the 10k route with a pretty diversion on each lap to extend to distance.

We are also offering a 5k run / walk for all levels. The 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. 

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. 

There will be hot food from Good Spuds & homemade coffee & cake from Sunshine Van. Bring your supporters & a picnic blanket if the weather is good & they can sit on the lawns by the hall to watch the event unfold & cheer you on (COVID SAFETY GUIDELINES MAY APPLY SO PLEASE KEEP A SAFE DISTANCES BASED ON THE ADVICE AT TIME OF RACE) .
