During the light evenings, from early April to early September, we 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, we are based at 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 Fast group, who do, for example, 10 miles at a strong pace which is for those whose times are below 37 - 38 mins for 10k, 62mins for 10 miles 85 mins for a half-marathon or run on the fells. The Intermediate group is for slower paced runners, down to very roughly 50 mins 10K, 70 mins for 10miles, 105 mins half-marathon and who would like to improve. These are often steady sessions up to 9 miles, but vary both longer and shorter to suit the group. Both groups do fartlek sessions occasionally again when it suits the groups.
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 21 April - Sunday 26 April 2009
Tuesday 21 April - 6:30pm
A 9.1 mile run from Bramcote out onto the Erewash Canal over Toton sidings and back via Moor Bridge. How does some sort of VO2 session sound?



Thursday 23 April - 5:15pm
11.5M medium-long run, incorporating 6M tempo. I'll be running from the Tennis Centre - if you're interested, send me a text.



Saturday 25 April - 9am
Wollaton Park easy 7.5 mile run for 1 hour, meet at St. Leonard's Avenue, Wollaton. Planning to do a few 150m strides with full recovery at the end of the run.

Sunday 26 April - ~7am
Not sure what people are planning. I was thinking to do a 19M incorporating a 30k progression run (10k easy - 10k steady - 10k marathon effort) starting early (~7am) so we can catch FLM on the telly.

Race Results
National 12 Stage - Awesome run Rob, you are on fire lad!!!

Trent 5M - Wed 10th June, 7:30pm.
Start and finish from the Siemens Sports Ground in Beeston Rylands, Nottingham, UK. Great UKA measured course along the Trent, good running surfaces. Great value - only £4 for affiliated runners, almost as cheap as a fell race (but much flatter) so even Gary may do it! Full details and entry form from the Beeston AC website. Please note this replaces the Notts AAA Summer league at Erewash which has now moved to June 17th.
