News and races with Beeston AC


Hi all – details of news and runs below.


Notts AAA (on behalf of Southwell RC) is asking for support for the first Summer League race at Hexgreave on 20 April as they have reported they are short of marshals. Anyone offering to help with parking would still be able to run the race once all the cars are parked. If you are willing to help please email

The Ed Prickett Relays are back this coming Sunday, 3 April 10.00 am at University Park, University of Nottingham (starting point usually on the Downs with a run round campus then along the Boulevard). Teams can be men or women or mixed (2 plus 2). We have done this before, it’s great fun and cheap (£5 each)! If the legs are the same length as before, it’s just under 2.4 miles (3.8K) and the relays are run in memory of a student Ed Prickett, whose family often turn up with a team.


The Hardwick 10K is back on 21 July! Those who like a hilly race can find details at


The Stephen Price Memorial 10K and fun run is also back on Sunday, 11 September at Aston-on-Trent. This is a race which Mark put on the Road League Calendar back in 2020 but unfortunately it was cancelled. Check out the website at
