The award winning event 'Thoresby10' is a 5k, 10k, 10 mile & half marathon autumnal trail run in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park, north Nottinghamshire. The route is the same as well known 'The Longhorn' but in reverse.
*NEW DISTANCE ADDED IN 2020 - HALF MARATHON (13.1MILES)*
Covid-19 Safety Measures -
We are currently planning the additional measures required. Your safety & enjoyment of the day is our priority. Race Village will be expanded 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 - just don't hold hands!!) There will be no trophy presentation after the races & trophies may be replaced by High St vouchers or discount codes which can be emailed out POST race.
There will be additional safety measures 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. More details of these will be outlined & emailed to all participants nearer the event date.
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. It's a different 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.
Canicross entries & Nordic Walkers are very welcome. Please ensure you enter under the specific category you wish to be with. Seperate cx start times to help avoid congestion and over taking. Canicross races are not under UKA rules & do not offer EA affilliated discount.
Free parking is located off Nethefield Lane and marked with our signs. Please allow up to an hour before your race start to collect your timing chip and race number.
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 events. Teams should be made up of 3 people to participate. Trophies 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. You will still get your individual chip time & place.

Our chosen charity partner – Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance are kindly assisting with the baggage drop this year. We are politely asking for a minimum donation of £1 per bag. We hope you can support them by fundraising for this event using a charity place & by donating on the day.
The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is at the forefront of Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) in the UK, attending an average of three potentially life-saving missions every single day, 365 days of the year.
As a Charity we rely purely on public donations. We are not Government-funded and not part of the NHS. We provide the equivalent of an A&E department directly to the scene of some of the most serious and time critical 999 calls in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
