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.

Very hot, very hilly!

Whilst the stalwarts were jogging round Swingate, the next generation were cutting their teeth at the Worthington 5 near East Midlands Airport. Joe and Max whipped round the 1.2mile fun run in 10th and 16th positions then the old man crawled round the 5 miler. It's a real grueler - the only circular course I've run that's uphill all the way! A veritable tarmac fell race. All in 26c temperatures.

A great village race starting and finishing at a real traditional Marstons pub. Worth another attempt when the temperature drops!
