The Rasselbock Run

From: £30.00

Clear

We have been given special permission to put on our first event in the beautiful Sherwood Pines forest. This event will be a six-hour challenge on a looped course around the beautiful forest which is looked after by the UK Forestry Commission. You may attempt to complete as many laps as possible over the full six hours, or you may choose to finish just one, either way, you will be a finisher and receive your bespoke medal and goody bag.

The aim for our events is to organize races as if I was taking part, so you can expect amazing support, the best medals and goody bags, and a small group of runners that is never any more than 150. Think of it as a small group of friends and family all coming together for an amazing day of running! Scroll for more…

Event Infomation


Where is Sherwood Pines?

Sherwood Pines Forest Park is located 6 miles east of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG21 9JL. For more information on the venue, including directions, accommodation, and more, please check out the Sherwood Pines Infomation Page.

Where do I register/ pick up my race number?

You’ll be able to pick up your race number on the morning of the event at the aid station/start line. The park will be open from 8am, and you’ll be able to grab your race numbers shortly after then. Please allow yourself enough time to grab your number before the race briefing at 8:50 am and the start of the run at 9am.

Is there a time limit?

There is a time limit of 6 hours for this event. This means that you need to have completed your final lap before the end of the 6 hours for it to be counted towards your final distance. You will not be allowed to start another lap of the course after 20 minutes of the event is remaining. Each lap is exactly 3.31 miles long which means if you complete 4 laps you have done a half marathon, 8 laps, a full marathon and 9 laps or more will be classed as an Ultra. You can finish your event at any time within the six hours, and as long as you have completed one lap then you will be classed as a finisher.

What do I get with my entry?

  • A fully unique and bespoke medal design just for this event, (to be released soon).
  • All the food, drink, and nibbles that you could imagine at the aid station.
  • A fully stocked goody bag at the end with all the “recovery chocolate” that you could imagine!
  • Dedicated first aiders on site for the full 6 hours.
  • Amazing support from the Rasselbock Family!

Is there an Aid station?

We will have a fully stocked aid station at base camp full of all your favorite items, although if you are expecting energy tablets, gels, and supplements, you may need to bring your own as our aid station tends to lean towards the more “enjoyable fuel”. Imagine Fudge, cakes, cookies, and jelly babies along with all the savory alternatives.

Can I bring my own food and drink for the aid station?

You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink to the aid station. We will have a separate table for these so please make sure that your bottles or items are clearly labeled so that no one takes them by accident!

What is the route?

The route is currently 3.31 miles long (5.32km) and runs through a mix of forest trails single paths and forest access roads. Underfoot you’ll have a mix of natural woodland and gravel tracks so I’d recommend trail shoes if possible. The route has the possibility of changing depending on the Forestry Commission’s needs at the time, but it will always be of the same length and character. You can view the route here.

Do you have a bag drop?

We do not have any secure baggage areas on site but you are more than welcome to leave your bags at the base camp. Whilst we can’t guarantee that they’ll be safe, there will always be someone from Rasselbock around.

What should I bring?

We would recommend trail shoes for this route, mainly due to it taking place in January and, let’s face it, there is a high chance that it’ll be cold and wet! So please make sure that you wear and bring with you adequate layers to keep yourself warm throughout the race and just as importantly, once you finish. Like all of our events going forward, we will be operating a bring your own bottle policy. We will not be supplying plastic cups or drinks receptacles at this event so that we can cut down on waste and do our part to help the environment. You will be required to bring your own water bottle, collapsable cup, or similar to the event. We will still have an array of liquids available for you to top up your bottles with at our well-stocked aid station!

Is the run on a closed course?

The event will be taking place on and around a working forest that will still be open to the public. Runners will not have the right of way and we will need to be considerate to all the other users of the area, be it walkers, cyclists, dog walkers, and children when passing through any of the “activity areas” of the forest.

What facilities will be available?

There will be some public toilets that will be open for our use (from 8.30 am) located at the Visitor Center that is located between the car park and the base camp.
