** All NWR activities are suspended until further notice, in accordance with the latest guidelines from England Athletics. This page will be updated as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so **
We run beginners groups throughout the year in various locations, you can check here to see what we have coming up. These groups are taken by qualified run leaders who will take the group through the ‘Couch to 5km’ programme in 10 weeks and if you’re up for it, you can graduate with the group by completing the nearest parkrun, where you’ll get purple support worthy of an Olympic athlete! If you want to give running a go, trust us, it’s so much easier in a group. The best bit is, it’s totally FREE but you MUST register for the group as numbers are restricted
VOLUNTEERS. We couldn’t run our sessions without the help of our volunteers. They are there to make sure people know the routes and timings and to make sure we follow our policy of “nobody gets left behind”. If you’re part of a social group and can help with the new beginners, even if you can’t commit every week, then the Run Leaders and new runners really appreciate it.
….nothing in your neck of the woods at the moment? keep checking here for more groups to be added in 2019 or if you’re desperate to get running ( and we can’t blame you) . Check out other local clubs who may also be running beginner sessions ……
England Athletics have now released a statement following the government’s update yesterday. The full statement is on the link below, but the summary is:
England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April. As an England Athletics affiliated club, we will be following this and cancelling all NWR runs until at least the end of April. We apologise for any confusion and for the disappointment of this but as previously explained the health and welfare of our members, supporters and their families are our priority. Look out for further info from the club on virtual runs or challenges, following government advice. As ever see the link below if you think you are struggling with mental health currently.
