Free Training Runs With the New Rebel Runners

Rebel Runners


Technically, Nottingham’s newest running group, Rebel Runners Nottingham, is doing well against the odds and is now proud to be supporting its runners towards their goals.

The Rebel Runners, who used to be members of the Sweatshop Running Community until the host store closed, created a new community running group in February. Three months later, with a membership of over 200, five sessions each week and a ‘can do’ attitude, the group is growing weekly and supporting each other to achieve goals, from learning to run to completing marathons.

Many will be setting foot on the courses of the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Half Marathon this year. The group has a completely inclusive ethos and a wide and wonderfully mixed membership of beginners to experienced athletes. The group also provides free courses to absolute beginners on Mondays and Thursdays with opportunities to practice and improve through the week.

Rebel Runners has a number of qualified run leaders in its membership and an abundance of willing volunteers; people from all walks of life who have themselves benefited from being part of this encouraging and successful community.

Claire Hill, one of the experienced run leaders, explained: “On Sundays we offer people the chance to train for longer distances, with other runners. It’s a great way to work towards events such as the Robin Hood.”

Training Runs

Lisa, ran in the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Marathon two years ago and mixes social running and beginners coaching with her own personal run training throughout each week.

Claire added: “We are always delighted to meet new people who want to run with us, whether they’re brand new to the sport, want to develop their skills or simply wish to have company on runs, I am so pleased to be a part of such a diverse group of people who quickly become friends, supporters and often heroes too!”
