Come and join us for 1 or 2 days of fun in the forest!
The 401 Festival of Running is coming to the beautiful setting of Sherwood Pines just outside Nottingham for the first time ever. During The 401 Challenge, the support from the local running community in and around the Nottingham area was outstanding, hence why we picked this location to launch one of our festivals. For this event, we have partnered with the lovely ladies at Notts Womens Runners.
With adult races including 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and our famous Festival Challenge (26.2 miles across the weekend!), plus 4 childrens races there is so much to choose from for the entire family to enjoy.
Enjoy good quality food and drink along with a FREE evening film in our events village just as the sun sets over the forest, this year it's The Goonies, a true classic!
Enjoy bespoke quality made bling (totally worth it!), along with the chance to buy a piece of our event merchandise all with a #bemoreeco twist.
Our events are designed to cater for everyone, no matter if you are a beginner or someone that likes to go flat out. Our events are made even more special because of our incredible volunteers who really add to the supportive and friendly atmosphere of the event across the weekend. Whether you are first or last over the finish line, youll be greeted by a smile and maybe even a hug. We want you to go away from this event with your confidence boosted and feeling great about yourself, because after all, thats what running is all about.
We cant wait to see you in July, its going to be epic!
