Monday nights we meet at the Portland Centre. During the summer months, once the clocks have gone forward, we have three routes which all involve running along the river or the canal. During the darker months we run the streets of West Bridgford, again offering three different routes. As we are currently running the winter routes, those are the only ones shown here for now.
The car park at the Portland Centre is only to be used by members of the leisure centre so we ask you not to park there. You will find lots of space to park on the embankment which is only a couple of minutes walk away and parking is free after 5pm.

Take the next right turn on to Melton Road. Follow Melton Road all the way to the big junction at The Point office building.
