There were 20 club members over 7 Parkruns this week, Newark, Rosliston, Long Eaton, Eden Project, Kingsbury Water, Clumber and Hastings

This weekend was dominated by The 2018 Conti Thunder Run, a 24-hour endurance race in Catton Park, Derbyshire. There were 42 members of NOTFAST running in either relay teams of 3-5, 6-8 or running solo around the 10K cross country course, completing as many laps as possible in the 24-hour time period. The event started at noon on Saturday in bright sunshine and it didn’t let up until midday on Sunday. The ground was hard, it was hilly, the course was riddled with tree stumps and roots in places, at night there were dust clouds making running through the woods at very difficult. But it was a fantastic event with an even better atmosphere. Special thanks to the Notfast support and team managers who spurred on the runners and kept us going (along with waking us up)

In Total, Notfast clocked up 1730 km over the 24 hours.
