The award winning event Thoresby Leaf Kick is back for their 9th annual autumnal trail run in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park, north Nottinghamshire offering distances of 5k, 10k, 10 mile, half marathon for nordic walkers.
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.
STANDARD ONLINE ENTRIES CLOSE FRI 15th SEPTEMBER – so that race numbers can be ordered
The 10k route is the same as well known ‘The Longhorn’ but in reverse. The 10 mile race is the 10k route with an extra 4 miles added through different parts of the ancient woodland. Half marathon is 2 laps of the 10k route with a pretty diversion on each lap to extend to distance.
They are also offering a 5k run / walk for all levels. The route takes you on some grass past the beautiful church at Perlethorpe, on tarmac through the village & 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.
