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: nettyfred@yahoo.com

Please note: – Training sessions shown in red start from where they say.

Otherwise, Tuesday sessions will start at Tom Mann Pavilion for efforts and steady options and J&P, and bottom of Beacon Hill for the hill work.

VISIBILITY/TORCHES – We encourage the use of high-vis clothing and illuminated accessories now the training sessions are held in the dark. However, as we run almost exclusively in well-lit areas, there isn’t any need for a torch unless it is recommended in the training programme. There are some very powerful head and chest torches on the market which are fantastic for off-road night running, but they aren’t necessary on normal training nights. They can be quite distracting for motorists, and blinding to your fellow club members. Please bear this in mind when preparing for training nights.

SUMMER LEAGUE

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.

CROSS COUNTRY RELAYS

The British Masters Athletics Federation Open Cross Country Relays (Sponsored by The
Derby Runner) are being held for the fourth time at West Park, Long Eaton on 27thOctober, on behalf of and under UKA & BMAF rules. So far we have had good support from our neighbouring clubs from Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, but many clubs have not yet taken part. The event has gained in popularity and participation since Derby C & AC rescued it. There will be clubs from all parts of the UK, and some very high class competition. The West Park course has remained the same, so strong individual and team records have been established.

They are open to all athletes who are: a) 35 years or over, and
b) have a valid EA registration number. Also, the club must be affiliated to UKA.

Team Details:
Men V35-44 & V45-54 – 5 legs
Men V55-64 – 4 legs
Men’s teams over V65 in 10 year age bands – 3 legs
All Women’s teams in 10 year bands from V35-44 – 3 legs

The course is a flat & fast 3k mainly over grass, with some trail and woodland. Only one leg per runner. Down-ageing is allowed. Cost is £6 per runner, i.e. 3, 4 or 5 x £6/team as applicable. Entry by age group/squad lists with names allowed on more than one list to allow for last minute re-arranging of teams prior to declarations.
The course route allows for maximum supporting of runners by fellow team members and families.

Naturally, The Derby Runner will be in attendance, c/w stall for many excellent discount purchases. They have been good enough to sponsor the event for the fourth
year.
Entries are to be submitted via the on-line entries system found at: www.bmaf.org.uk “Fixtures”, under National Fixtures. Closing date – 14 Oct 18.

Long Eaton Running Club invites you all to enter at least one team of men and women, to enjoy this event.

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
