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 18 August - Sunday 23 August 2009
Tuesday 18 August - 6:30pm
Bramcote for a 10.3 mile run on the Strelley-Cossall route. How about we do it in reverse for a change? Thinking to do 5 x 1M @ 10k pace/effort with 3 min recoveries.

Wednesday 19 August - 5:30pm
Mountainous 13.7M run from Tennis Centre incorporating some of the infamous Mapperly Hills. Give me a text (Ben) if you're interested, start time is flexible.

Saturday 22 August - 9am
Wollaton Park easy 7.5 mile run for 1 hour, meet at St. Leonard's Avenue, Wollaton - worth checking to see who's about.

Sunday 23 August
Not sure what is going on - check with the usual suspects.

Entry up ~30% from the last time Matt and I ran this (323 finishers in 2009 versus 245 finishers in 2007)
