The 401 Festival of Running Nottingham - 5k, 10k, Half Marathon & Kids' Races
The 401 Festival of Running is coming to the beautiful Sherwood Pines, just outside Nottingham, for the first time ever. Welcome to our stunning new Festival of Running location, and our 2-day Running Festival, open to all ages and all abilities.
Races include a 5k, 10k, and a Half Marathon, plus an additional 6.1k for those that want to take part in our 'Festival Challenge' and complete a marathon distance over the weekend. Kids are well catered for as well, with four individual races across the two days.
Not only does our event include running, but we also pride ourselves on our 401 Events Village, which includes local organic food vendors, a fully stocked pop-up bar and a free evening film in our Events Village just as the sun sets over the forest - this year it's ‘The Goonies’, a true classic!
