Get ready, set... and race! Get your New Year off to a flying start in... June 2024!
This wonderful race is finally taking to the trail and we invite you all to join us.
This is a Nice Work race
This means that this is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.
This race was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday 21st January as our New Year celebration in Sherwood.
However, due to high winds forecast by the Met Office, Sherwood Pines informed us that the site would be closed on this day and so the event was postponed to Sunday 2nd June 2024. All runners registered to race the New Year event were contacted via email.
And now, we invite you to join us for a slightly late, slightly sunnier iteration of this wonderful forest race! If that New Year's resolution to get yourself race-fit is still twirling about your brain, then why not join us in the picturesque forest of Sherwood Pines, for the Sherwood (postponed New Year) 10k and 5k?
Great for seasoned pros or total newbies and the route's gorgeous greenery is sure to motivate any runner to the finish.
The routes follow a scenic course within Sherwood Pines. This is a looped course which spans through the naturally undulating trails within the forest. Once part of the ancient Sherwood Forest, the park is the largest of its kind in the East Midlands. Throughout the race, runners will make their way along dirt tracks flanked by the towering woodland. It's a real treat!
The 10k course is a two lap route whilst those running a 5k race will complete only one lap.
