We have been running together as a group for a number of years, having previously pounded the streets of Nottingham in the yellow of Sweatshop Running Community. In February 2015, Sweatshop in Nottingham was forced to close and we were no longer able to run as a group under the Sweatshop Running Community banner.
We were in no doubt that we wanted to continue to run together as a group so we rebranded as Rebel Runners. The group is now operated completely by volunteers, with all of our run leaders and helpers giving their time to ensure that we continue to enjoy a free activity, as well as enjoying each other’s company while running.
That’s how we roll…
We meet up several days a week at various locations across Nottingham, which we have tried to space out to cover the greatest ‘catchment area’ and benefit as many runners as possible.
Our runs offer a range of distances from 2 miles to 6 miles, with the exception of the occasional long runs on Sundays, which are between 5 and 10 miles. You can find more information about this on the Routes page.
We do a number of beginners courses throughout the year; these are 8 week run/walk courses with the amount of running increasing over the weeks with the aim of getting you from non-runner to running 5k.
We support all levels of runners so you don’t need to worry about being fast enough – just come along and do your best.
Rebel Runners social events
We are a sociable bunch too and enjoy meeting up for a drink and a bite to eat almost was much as we enjoy running. We usually arrange a social every month, taking place in the evening after the run in one of the local establishments – everyone’s welcome.
Other social events include pub crawls, camping trips, summer games, a Christmas party and post race gatherings.
