Enjoying the fun of the run at The Longhorn

Longhorn is back and ready to roar

The gold award winning event will be held on St George’s Day.

It's the charge of the running (and walking) brigade for The Longhorn on Sunday 23 April with a choice of distances in the stunning Thoresby Park. Well organised, friendly and open to man’s best friend too, it is a favourite with runners for many reasons...

Dogs are welcome along with Nordic Walkers and runners to the 2023 Longhorn which this year takes place on St George's Day. This has informed the design of the medal and the eye-catching t-shirt – the latter available to purchase at time of entry.

The only slaying to be done is your chosen distance on an undulating lapped course containing a mixture of terrain which includes ancient woodland, open woodland, farmland, tracks, trails and tarmac. This scenic wonder goes through the grounds of Thoresby Park and private sections of Sherwood Forest in North Nottinghamshire. Location, location, location...

There is a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, 30K (18.6 miles), Marathon, 50K Ultra and a 60K Ultra so, whether you are a fan of short distances or prefer to go long, there is a race for you. Along with support and encouragement from the smiling, cheerfully efficient marshals to keep everyone on the right track. You might even catch a glimpse of the Longhorn cattle of Thoresby Estate.

Two and four legged competitors are looked after from start to finish. Distance markers, feed/water stations, toilets every two miles on the course and medical provision. There's also a medal, free sports massage and free photographs.

There will be hot food and drinks for sale in the Race Village and a variety of caterers; one of which will be vegan. And most important of all – there's cake!

The SBR Events website contains more information about The Longhorn and entry options. First come first served so don’t leave it too long to sign up.
