Summer Dukeries 40
Saturday 10th July 2021
Please note this is in addition to the Dukeries 40 in May. Created due to the event in May being full as a result of postponement due to Covid-19. There is no 30 mile option on this Summer version.
All HOBO Pace races are fully marked out and marshalled. No navigation other than common sense to stay on track is required at this event. Basic refreshments will be provided at regular intervals and at the finish.
All finishers receive a HOBO Pace race T-Shirt and medal with the race engraving.
Please note this is one lap and is actually a 40.8 Mile loop.
There is a generous cut off of 10.5 hours to complete this event making it very possible for all abilities of runner to complete.
The 40 mile loop takes in some of the most beautiful and undiscovered sandstone villages and historical sites in England. Runners only. Sorry no walkers, this refers to ramblers with no intention of making the cut off! Yes you are allowed to walk as a runner at times!
The race starts in the heart of Sherwood Forest and keeping mostly to 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 passing The Major Oak!
This circular loop is ideal for those fairly new to running trails or to those who wish to enjoy a safe and scenic supported run with friends. Equally, this race is also ideal for experienced runners seeking a trail ultra PB!
