The award-winning event Thoresby Leaf Kick is back for 2022! 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.
