On a fine, dry, chilly and breezy Boxing Day morning 7 members of NOTFAST running club were invited to join Newark Athletic Club for their annual Boxing Day handicap race. Held at Devon Park and following the new footpaths this was an ideal event to blow the cobwebs away and burn a few calories of the many consumed the day before. Female runners completed 3 laps, male runners completed 4 laps. NOTFAST runners and their times were.

The following morning the same 7 runners joined together with another 4 members of NOTFAST running club to take part in the Notts Athletic Club annual Xmas Relays held at Wollaton Park . A beautiful morning, with a clear blue sky, all feeling the warmth from the sun this could easily have been a March morning rather than December! The event is well organised and held in a very pleasant setting. The 2.5 mile route followed park roads and trail paths, and the edge of the lakeside. Wyn Thomas volunteered to run 2 legs as we had a vacant place on a team. NOTFAST runners and their times were.
