The 30 & 40 mile loops take in some of the most beautiful and undiscovered sandstone villages and historical sites in England. The 30 mile option is open to walkers. The 40 mile is runners only.
The races start in the heart of Sherwood Forest and keep mostly to forest trails and footpaths. The route passes charming lodges, through Cresswell Crags and skirts the Welbeck Estate. It then crosses Clumber Park and through peaceful farm land before looping back to pass by the Thoresby Estate before returning to Sherwood Forest. The 40 miler passes The Major Oak!
This circular loop is ideal for those fairly new to running trails. Equally, this race is also ideal for experience runners seeking a trail ultra PB!
The race takes place annually, usually the second Saturday in May.
