The award winning event 'Thoresby10' has had a name upgrade for 2021! 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.
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 & we are yet to confirm which course you will run in 2021. Both routes take 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. 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.
