** CORONAVIRUS UPDATE AS OF 14th Sept 2020 **
Runners can continue to meet in groups of up to 6 to train observing social distancing and hygiene measures.
Our Covid-19 officer will be looking in ways in which groups operate following meetings with the run leaders.
We have discussed this as a committee and concluded that as we cannot fulfill both these guidelines and our inclusive ethos of everyone is welcome at our runs, we will continue with no club runs until further guidance is released. This includes any runs from our normal meet points on our normal nights.
You can meet in groups of up to 6 to run these can be arranged in our sub groups Of course we ask that you are also following:
Keeping social distancing of 2 meters between each runner.
Regularly washing and sanitising hands.
Keeping within your limits and consider health and safety implications of your run for example if first aid is required out on a trail.
That you are still following our inclusive ethos of not leaving anyone behind.
Not meeting in groups of more than 6.
Not hanging around before or after running and make your way home swiftly (make it a chatty run on the way round instead)
As ever please respect everyone in this as not everyone will be ready for this next stage.
NWR Help During Suspension
We encourage you to continue running and exercising during this difficult time but please respect our announcement about the cancellation of all NWR runs and do not gather at our usual meeting points on an unofficial basis. This is to protect you, your families and the wider community.
We have got lots of challenges and virtual ways to keep spirits high including virtual challenges, best/worst/funniest race photos, caption this photo, alphabet runs, funniest Strava route challenges and how we celebrate our birthday to name but a few while we are apart!

Notts Women Runners is an inclusive, friendly group for ladies across Nottinghamshire. What started as a couple of friends who wanted to find someone to run with has become Notts largest England Athletics affiliated running club. But what makes Notts Women Runners different from other running clubs is their focus on getting complete beginners out running and loving it and all totally FREE!
You’re never too old, too large, too busy, too nervous to run; our members are a testament to that.
Of course if you’re already a runner but fancy some new running buddies, fast or slow, we can help.
EA Guidance is very clear with regards to returning to running in that we MUST guarantee a ‘Covid secure’ running environment to run in group of more than 6. This means –
· Having a Covid Coordinator in place
· Full risk assessments in place that including minimising Covid transmission
· Pre-registration for participants inc. pre activity health questionnaire
· The register of participants must be kept for 21days (track & trace)
· Social Distancing (2 meters apart) MUST always be maintained
· Participants MUST be fit to run with no COVID symptoms
· If you cannot ensure you will remain 2 meters apart at any briefings masks must be worn
· Maintenance of good hand hygiene at all times and minimal contact of each other and equipment
