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. 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.
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!

This is a great run through beautiful countryside. Excellently organised and it was clear safety was paramount. All the staff were very helpful and very friendly. Would definitely do it again.
Considering the event happened during the covid situation it was still a great event. Obviously more spectators etc would have added to the atmosphere. All of the procedures put in place were great. Cleanest portaloos ever! The course was lovely and I hope to do it again next yea...Read full review
