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.

The Great GR20 Bed Race

Ben and Gary are in hot and sunny Bastia, Corse after the great GR20 Bed Race. This is an ultra endurance event comprising sleep deprivation, nasal challenges and long hours marching over incredibly rough terrain.

The rules of the race are that the first one to the refuge for the next day gets the best bed and the last gets no bed. Runners regularly start the event at 5am. You will be gald to hear that we succeeded in sleeping soundly every night.

See you on Saturday for a run around Wolly Park. 10am.
