Following consultation with our participants, the council, the park and local landowners, the decision has been made to return to the previously used 5k course in 2020.
You will now have the choice to enter a morning event or an early afternoon event.
The morning 5K sets off at 09:30am.
The early afternoon 5k sets off at 12:30pm.
Please note that the 5k runners will be part of the 10k field, it is no longer run in a different time slot.
There are strict capacities in place for each race to ensure we don’t have over congestion in either the car parks or on the course..

We are returning to the previously delivered 5k route around the park.
5k runners will join those taking part in the 10k as both events are set off at the same time as one field.
The route will be signed and marshalled. Please listen to all marshal instructions as they are there to ensure you go in the right direction.
We ask that all participants refrain from wearing headphones while taking part in the event.
All finishers receive a medal for taking part.
We have a range of additional purchases available that you can select during the entry process.
If you’re tired of safety pins piercing your favourite running tops, then you can add Rushcliffe 10K Event Clips to your order. These fasten your bibs to your top without damaging the garment in any way.
You will need to order these before the end of January.
You can also add an iTab to your order which will be posted out to you post event and will slot nicely onto the back of your medal, showing your name and time.
Nottingham Hospitals Charity is the charity at the heart of care for patients at Nottingham’s hospitals, raising money to improve facilities, fund new state-of-the-art equipment, provide important additional services for patients, support staff development and initiate local medical research at Queen’s Medical Centre (including Nottingham Children’s Hospital), City Hospital, Ropewalk House and Hayward House hospice.
In November 2016, Nottingham Hospitals Charity launched the Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, with the aim of raising £4 million by 2021 to help to transform children’s care and research new treatments. Nottingham Children’s Hospital – based within Queen’s Medical Centre – cares for more than 60,000 young people every year. Children from across the Midlands are treated for everything from cancer and leukaemia to kidney disease, organ transportation, life-long acute respiratory problems and broken bones.
