Our friends over at Sweatshop (one of parkruns principle sponsors) have asked us to share news of the forthcoming Robin Hood festival of running on 29th September 2013 - One day, three races...
"The Ikano Robin Hood Half Marathon takes place on a proven flat and fast course. It's an ideal course for beginners, improvers, seasoned professionals all the way through to elites.
Plus the Ikano Robin Hood Marathon is back in 2013. Following the same route as
the Half Marathon until mile 11 this fast and flat course takes you around
the City Centre, along the tree-lined University Boulevard and through the
Trent building courtyard at the University of Nottingham, one of the most
iconic buildings in Nottingham. From there you will head back towards the
City Centre and Trent Bridge, where you will proceed towards Colwick Country
Park and the National Water Sports Centre at Holme Pierrepont Country Park
before winding your way along the river to the finish at Victoria
The Ikano Robin Hood Mini Marathon and Schools Challenge is run over a 2.5 Kilometre (1.5 mile) beautiful route along the river Trent. It’s open to absolutely anyone and is ideal for runners looking for a shorter distance challenge." Enter now at http://www.robinhoodhalfmarathon.co.uk/
