  • Did the event in 2018

    I did the 5k as my first race back after having my baby in July 2017 so I was a little bit nervous but this was such a fantastic event that I've signed up for the marathon in 2019! The organisation was great, the event village was buzzing and there was such a supportive vibe.

Roche Abbey Trail Running Festival

Roche Abbey is definitely a hidden gem, its not very well known, and nevertheless its very beautiful. Roche Abbey is nestled away in South Yorkshire near the picturesque village of Maltby. The races will start and finish within the grounds of the glorious Roche Abbey and will encompass trail and track running through Lord Scarboroughs land, which originally formed part of Sherwood Forest.

Roche Abbey was founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks; it was once home to 50 monks and 20 lay brothers. It is beautifully set in a valley landscaped by Capability Brown. The ruins of Roche Abbey are now the centre piece of the beautifully designed landscape.

Apparently Roche Abbey is a paranormal hotspot with lots of scary activity. The Abbey house which is only 240 years old, which now houses the Abbey shop as many tales surrounding it. One tale is of a Lady in Grey who can be seen looking out of the upstairs window where the sound of a wailing child can also be heard. Towards the end of the Abbey there lies a small stone coffin and it is said if one stares at it long enough, a face will appear.. Yikes!

So come running with us for miles with smiles and enjoy the hidden away treasures in this lesser known part of the world.

    The heat made it a very challenging course.. a bit grim in fact! But course was stunning and the whole atmosphere at race HQ was fantastic. We made a day of it.
  • Did the event in 2018

    On a drunken evening some months ago me and my mate decided it would be a good idea to register for the 20 mile option of this event.  On waking the the next morning we both text each other demanding to know who had hacked our respective phones and done such a thing.Being only our second organised event both me and my mate (Gimli, son of Gloin) were slightly nervous on race day as you never quite know what to expect from the day. I was so nervous that i would get the registration bit wrong that i forgot we were meant to be doing 20 miles. Not quite sure what i was expecting to get wrong mind.Anyway, we need'nt have worried , registration was simple and really friendly, Diane showed us what we needed to do and get.We got chatting to various other runners and Andy the massage man so we were soon feeling very much at home and I even pretented i was a seasoned running veteran to a few folks. They could could blatantly tell i wasnt.The race course was stunning, great trails and spectacular views and plenty of hills.I can't thank the marshalls enough for a superb job of watering, feeding and generally getting us round the course on a ridiculously hot day. Massive thanks to you all, you were brilliant.The finish line was a sight to behold and we were welcomed in like champions. I actually thought i had won the whole event. Alas, i hadnt. The medals and goody bags were a triumph and although i didnt have any cake (I am watching my figure darling), it looked amazing.All in all, we had an incredible day, and so did the hundreds (well 10) of our friends and family who came to support.IGUN is most certainly not grim. Its a lovley warm friendly family of organisers and runners and we will certainly be booking more dates in the diary.

Robin Hood 100

An Exciting return to the newest addition on the Hobopace event calendar. This is a fully marked ultra on nice underfoot, runnable and scenic trails.

The route heads into Sherwood Forest to take in Robin Hoods homeland before returning back to South Wheatley. Relatively flat with no major climbs, just steady undulations on occasion, make it a fast course.

What you need to know about Ultramarathons

An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.
