Following an overwhelming number of registrations in the lead up to this weekend’s event, organisers of the Sherwood Pines Trail Races have announced they have reached entry capacity. The 5K and 10K runs, both scheduled for this Sunday (10 August), take place in Sherwood Pines Forest Park in Nottinghamshire.
Organised in association with Retford AC, the races are seen as key fixtures in the Midlands calendar, with a nice mix of seasoned campaigners and those new to the sport. With the forest offering a beautiful backdrop, runners are able to discover the delights of trail running on this gently undulating forest and family park course away from all the traffic.
Last year’s 10k saw Shane Robinson take first place in a time of 33:51, with Alice Venkatesan top in the female competition in 40:59. Retford AC secured a 1-2 in the 5k race, with Sam and Llyr Roberts leading the field home in 18:55 and 18:56 respectively. A similarly competitive race is expected this Sunday.
