NOTE the KTR30 will this year be 2 loops of the KTR15 route. For a number of reasons we have had to make this change for 2018 and we welcome feedback on this change both sit ice or negative.

This new, exciting and challenging trail running event compliments two other annual running events in Keyworth. It promises to test runners of all abilities, from the seasoned trail runner to the beginner looking for a fresh challenge or that next step up. With two course options of approximately 15.3km and 32.5km, the Keyworth Trail Run will allow you to push your running experience to the next level.

This isn’t an event for PB’s. It’s a tough challenge requiring all your concentration and pushing your fitness to the limit. The course takes you through beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside. 95% of the course is off tarmac ensuring a remote setting away from civilisation, whilst remaining in close proximity to Nottingham.

You will be taken across fields over stiles through gates up farm tracks and along bridleways around the villages south of Keyworth. Up for the challenge and looking for someone to train with, why not get in touch and sign up for our pre-race training runs which will take place on the course and around the local area.
