Robin Hood 100
All runners will be issued with live trackers. All finishers will receive a Medal & Race T-Shirt.
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 with the course record at 16 hours 34 minutes.
The route makes use of the Chesterfield Canal tow-path to pick up Clumber park. From there you join the Dukeries race route. This route takes in some of the most beautiful and undiscovered sandstone villages and historical sites in England.
The race enters into the heart of Sherwood Forest which offers some of Nottinghamshire's finest and most picturesque trail. Keeping to the tow-path and then mostly forest trails and footpaths, the route passes charming lodges, through Creswell 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. Return on the tow-path to head back to the village hall. You will pass The Major Oak!
All HOBO Pace races are fully marked out and marshalled. No navigation other than common sense and a general understanding of the route is needed to stay on track. Basic refreshment will be provided at regular intervals and at the finish.
