** 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 have many social groups running across Notts, here you can find the most recent list. You’ll love the group nicknames!!
Our social groups are mixed ability and have been set up to give you some new running buddies. They tend to go out for between 5km to 10km, sometimes both by splitting the group.
Our Run Leaders do not need to be present at social runs and if attending, are just there to run and not be a Run Leader. Whilst they may plan routes and distances for a social run, any member of the group can do this and it isn’t the Run Leaders responsibility, it’s often nice to run someone else’s route. Please remember that at social runs we all need to be looking out for each other, please make any new runners feel welcome and ensure that nobody is running alone even if that means looping back, waiting at set distances, or all slowing to the speed of the last runner. This is a really important rule and part of what makes NWR inclusive.
If you’re new, please check the Facebook group first to ensure that the group is running as planned as beginner sessions or adverse weather can sometimes impact the regular runs.

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 May 2020. As an England Athletics affiliated club, we will be following this and cancelling all NWR runs until at least the end of May 2020. 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.
Over the last 48 hours the government guidance has changed in relation to being able to meet in groups of up to 6 outside your home. Following on from this England Athletics have also released guidance which you can find on the link below. This explains that clubs can start to meet in groups of up to 6 to train observing social distancing and hygiene measures.
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.
We are aware that some people will want to meet in groups of up to 6 to run but we ask that these are not arranged in our sub groups as it could invalidate our EA insurance and cause confusion amongst runners. 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.
