** CORONAVIRUS UPDATE FOR LOCKDOWN 2.0 **
As of 4th November 2020, England is subject to further restrictions and is considered to be under anotheer “Lockdown” situation.
The orders from the government are for everyone to stay home unless absolutely necessary, although we are still allowed to leave our homes to exercise and for other limited reasons.
Because of this, we are sad to announce that all Back To Running sessions will be suspended until further notice.
We are still permitted to exercise with one other person from outside of our households or support bubble. This activity must be COVID secure as previous, and social distancing must be observed at all times.
Advice from England Athletics confirms the following:
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!
If anyone has any questions, please contact any of the Committee, your Run Leader or NWR Welfare on firstname.lastname@example.org

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.

1:1 coaching can take place in a public outdoor space following social distancing measures (both must be over 18 years).
