Starting from 8.30am
Taking place at Thoresby Park on Sunday 22nd April 2018, the popular Longhorn event is back!
Choose a race of 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon or 60k ultra!
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.
Nothing looks more beautiful than the sunlight streaming through the leaves in this natural area of beauty, a race that takes you into Nottinghamshire’s National Nature Reserve, through private areas that were once part of the 10,000 acres Royal Forest of Sherwood where the woodland is dominated by native Oaks as well as other native trees including Silver Birch, Rowan, Holly and Hawthorn. The reserve is also the site of Europe’s oldest Oak tree woodland, containing over 1000 Oaks most of which are over 500 years old! It is here that the Longhorn Cattle of Thoresby Estate now roam freely, although being a very docile breed of cattle, they will be tucked away during the race.
Get a feel for the event by taking a look at Xenium Stuido’s short film from The Longhorn in 2016
