During the light evenings, from early April to September, both groups are based at Bramcote Leisure Centre which gives easy access to off-road runs. During the dark evenings period, from mid September to early April, the faster group continue from Bramcote LC but the slower group moves to Nottingham Tennis Centre, University Boulevard, Nottingham, NG7 2QH, UK, Aerial view, which gives easy access to the road. We offer training for everyone whether in a club or not. We have regular runners who are members of established affiliated clubs and others who are unattached to any club.
There are two groups, the faster group who run approx 5 miles at a about 7 minutes per mile pace The slower group is about 10 minutes a mile (as at re launching the blog Autumn 2017) with aspiration to increase to about 9 mins per mile or slightly faster.
There is now a Facebook page also.
New runners are very welcome to just turn up and run. Check with the blog or the Facebook page for any late changes to the blog postings which we like to keep to an absolute minimum. Alternatively you can use the contact form if you prefer to make prior contact or would like further information.
There are no charges for running with us.
Following British Athletics rules for road running the minimum age for joining either group is 17.

Training and Racing: Tuesday 08 April - Sunday 13 April 2008
Tuesday 08 April - 6:30pm
Not sure of the route yet as it depends how much rain there is between now and the run and whether people don't mind getting their shoes muddy ;-) Probably be the Strelley - Cossall - Nottm canal run. Update: I don't think I'll be there. Planning to just do a steady run home - see you all in the Vic on Sunday night or down the pub a week from tomorrow (15th).

Andy T will not be with us this week but has suggested the following for anyone wishing to do a session:
  • 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 mins with 2mins recovery between everything.
  • Start at 10k pace progressing to 5k pace for the 1min, then back up to 10k pace for the last 5mins.
