Overview

The award winning event 'The Longhorn' is a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon, 50k or 60k Ultra trail run. Our 5k is family friendly with group tickets available. A beautiful trail run set in private areas of Sherwood Forest & the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park; next to a Grade1 listed 19th Century country house in north Nottinghamshire; Thoresby Hall.

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 & forest. 

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.

The Ultra will have an 8 hour limit to complete the course & marathon a 7 hour time limit. After that you will not be permitted to continue another lap & we send an END RUNNER round the course to ask marshals to stand down & to ensure last participant returns safely.

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.

Hot/cold refreshments stall at Race Village.

All other information & pricing in detail can be found on the website www.sbrevents.co.uk
