Formula One Circuit Crew was formed in July 1998 by a group of friends who had trained together for several years.
We gained our name from the founder members all being participants in the infamous 'Jeff's Super Circuit', a one and a half hour, outdoor, all weather, all terrain circuit class. If you don't think that sounds very hard, your welcome come and try it out. In the immortal words of our first Chairman, Jeff, 'It's no good being able to run if you can't carry your shopping home'.
Having realised that so many of us liked running it was a natural progression to join a club. As a group we were unable to find a club that catered for all our individual needs, so we decided to form our own club where the emphasis would be on fun, socialising and challenging the stereotypes of traditional clubs where only 'elite' runners are catered for. If we could make one person who had never ran before, run, we had succeeded. There's no 'i' in our team. We were affiliated to both Notts AAA and Midland Counties AA later in 1998. We have since joined the Notts AAA Summer Race League, the East Midlands and the North Mids Cross Country Leagues.
