Farewell

Nottingham City Harriers was the name adopted by a group of runners at the end of 2003 who, upon resignation from a local athletics club, set up their own independent training sessions.

The numbers have dwindled over the years and traveling to training venues at rush hour has got ever more difficult with worsening traffic conditions. So it has been decided to end the informal group from 17th January 2018, the remaining individuals continuing in a private capacity.

Many thanks to the runners who have supported these sessions over the years but we hope to still see some of you from time to time in the future.

NEW TRAINING VENUE (From February 2004):

The new training schedule is open to everyone, no matter which club you belong to. The important thing is to train with a friendly, supportive group to the best of you ability. We offer training for fun-runners and International athletes. Come along and give it a try in a warm, safe, secure and modern sports center. There are showers and (£1, money returned) lockers to keep your kit safe. A bar, well priced cafe, sauna and fitness rooms make this a great venue.

Training nights on Tuesday, Thursday and occasional Friday and Sunday, are from the reception of the Tennis Centre, University Boulevard, Nottingham:

Tuesday 6:30pm

10m, 8m and 6m at varying paces, from beginner to speed merchant. Leave at 6:30pm sharp

Thursday: 6:30pm

Usually a session on the university campus, including fast runs over 1km and 400m, repeated 5 times, if you find the speed hard come and play and see what it feels like to run fast; or not! Optional Training on Bramcote and Wollaton Park with the speed merchants.

Saturday 10am

An 8m - 9m easy run around the university and Wollaton Park, what a great way to start the day! Takes about an hour. Start from St. Leonards Drive opposite Wollaton Park gates.

Sunday 9:00am

A long run of 14 - 23 miles. We start the training from a number of venues, so get in touch if you are interested.
