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.

Longshaw Sheepdog Trials Fell Race 2009

A gem of a Fell Race. It's an add-on to the Sheep Dog Trails and the range of trophys for that event is stunning. Prizes were handed out by the Duke of Devonshire and my prize of a jar of Pickles will now be called 'Dukes Pickles'

The field was squelchy and soon covered in deep mud. The runner who came to the race on his tractor did a nice sideline in dragging runners cars off the field.

The prize that was worth winning.
