Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud – The East Mids Continues

We proved on Sunday that we’re a club of mudlarks if nothing else, taking three of the top 4 places in the men’s race and two of the top 10 in the ladies, on the way to sweeping to victory in three of the four senior and vets categories, our ladies vets taking a second place. Oli Matharu led the men’s field home followed by Phil Nind and Hannah Sampson took second in the ladies race.

That’s left us in good shape for the series, as we now lead the senior men’s category and are tied at the top in the vet men’s, senior ladies and vet ladies. So there’s all to play for when we resume in February.

Annual Dinner

Don’t forget the our annual dinner is on 25th January 2020 at the new town friendly venue of Alea Casino (108 Upper Parliament St, Nottingham NG1 6LF)

It’s a smashing event and is great for new members to get to know existing members and for everyone to have a good old catch up! For more details check out the SOCIAL EVENTS link at the top of the page.

Also, don’t forget to let us know your menu choice if you’ve already paid by filling in the google forms HERE

Victory to the Ladies

It was victory again to the ladies in the annual challenge against the V50 men last night. A last-minute change to the course was needed due to an accident on Radcliffe Road, so it was run over a roughly 2 mile out and back this year. Well done to everyone for getting the race on. It also gave us a chance to test our new chip timing system which we’re hoping to introduce to the Grand Prix next year.

There wasn’t much in it, with the ladies winning by 21 seconds.

Club Champs 2019 updated to end October

A new file has been added to the club championships page with all known results over the five CC distances to the end of October. Please let me (John Oldfield) know via FB or email if you think I’ve missed a race of yours (or made a mistake). A list of the leaders in each category is in the October Running Free, with just over a month to the end of the championship year.

2019 Club Championships

Hill Sessions Are Back

As the autumn leaves start falling, it’s a sure sign that the start of the hill sessions is upon us from this Thursday, 24th October at Selby Road. It’s best to be well warmed up for the session to avoid injury, so we recommend running out with the group from HP at 7pm. Otherwise, you can meet the group at Selby road for a 7.25 start.

New Steady Pace Group on Monday Nights

Starting on 2nd September, there will be a Monday night regular steady pace club run. This group will not have a set pace, but will run at the pace of the slowest in the group, so all abilities welcome (it will be a run though, not a run-walk). Each Monday, one or two members of the club will lead a run of between 4 and 5 miles depending on what the group want to do. Start and finish at NWSC, same as usual Monday night club runs. Just mention to the duty runner and they will point you to the right group.

We will trial this for 3-4 months to see if there is a demand, so if you are interested please do come along!
