Route information
This event will take place in the private grounds of Welbeck's 15,000 acre estate in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire. Not usually open to the public, you'll have a chance to enjoy the sunning parkland designed in 1748 and enjoy some beautiful views over the countryside.
The 10k course takes in sweeping views of Welbeck Abbey. The route circuits the park and crosses the picturesque great lake out into open countryside. It skims the deer park, where there’s the chance to look out for white deer, and returns via the Abbey.
The 5k course has a route that includes scenic countryside, skirting ancient woodland, forestry and farmland. The route also takes you past beautiful old lodges, and loops back to the heart of the estate. It's suitable for all family members who can run 5k or walk 1-1.5 hours - please note, for the little ones, there are a few hills to conquer.
Water Stations
There will be water stations at regular intervals throughout the course.
