Thoresby10 returned for the 4th annual autumnal trail run here in our beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park. The entrants chose from a race over 10k or 10miles, running along old military roads, cleared tracks through ancient woodland and grassed paths around the estate. The race took runners & walkers 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 plantation, containing over 1000 Oaks most of which are over 500 years old! The Longhorn Cattle of Thoresby Estate could also be spotted along the course of the race!
