Training and Events
Notfast Running Club – Training Plan
Tuesday training options include effort and steady sessions. Thursdays will have effort and steady options. Trainers will rotate around the sessions to give them some variety too
All training sessions are suitable for runners of all abilities – you don’t need to be a fast runner to join any of the groups. The aim of the “efforts/speed” sessions is for everyone to increase his/her own effort over usual steady pace, so your speed relative to other runners is not important – you won’t be left on your own.
Please let Netty have your feedback (positive and negative!) and any suggestions for training sessions so that future training can be tailored to suit everyone in the club: email@example.com
Please note: – Training sessions shown in red start from where they say.
Tuesday sessions will start at Tom Mann Pavilion for efforts and steady options and J&P. For Beacon hill work please meet in Timico carpark on Cafferata way.
10k sessions start at 7pm prompt.
Thursday sessions will be from Flowserve.
Friday track sessions (every fortnight) are at Newark Sports and Fitness Centre/YMCA on Bowbridge Road.
BRAND NEW COURSE: (R2R) Return 2 Running Course (Limited spaces available!)
This course is aimed at any existing member who has had any injury and would like to start running again. The structured programme will guide you through a gradual progression, as the body adapts back to running. It will also provide a safe and
supportive environment with like-minded runners whilst helping to build confidence through the rehabilitation. The course will be free for any existing member and will start on Tues 1st October at the Tom Mann Pavilion.
Any questions and comments are welcomed! Please email me for further details and
to express your interest – Henrietta McCabe on 07976 433390 or
The Summer League series is run at different venues in Nottinghamshire on 5 different Wednesday evenings during the summer. The courses are mostly around 5 miles long,with the last one usually just under 6 miles. You don’t have to be fast to take part, being part of a team is far more important (and it’s a Grand Prix event!) Start time 7:15pm. You don’t have to attend all of the races, but if you do you will be awarded a memento at the next awards ceremony.

NOTFAST GRAND PRIX 2019
To encourage participation in local events (both road and Trail), the club has set a Grand Prix. There will be 3 top places; Gold, Silver and Bronze, awarded to those who have collected the most points throughout the year (If there is a tie, the most miles racked up during the GP events will come top). You must volunteer at a club event (not just for Parkrun) to qualify.
All members who get 20 points or more AND have volunteered for a club event will be awarded a small memento. For members over 65, 12 points are required. Note that for Summer League and winter Cross Country any 2019 events qualify, but each series can only gain you 1 “point” i.e. 4 Summer Leagues isn’t 2 qualifying points. For Nottinghamshire County Championship races don’t forget to tick the box when entering, if eligible (residence 9 months or birth in county).
Please keep your own record of your Grand Prix events for the committee to verify at the end of the year
