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.

Calver (Pronounced Car'ver) Peak Fell Race is a fantastic little race. The start, finish and presentation is from the pub which has a great veranda for watching the presentation. The whole course is runnable with some killer 60m uphills to burst your lungs! I managed 1st Vet and got £25 for it! 8th overall. Well recommended for a mid-week blast with a good young field. This week you can do the Bamford, Calver, Totley, Castleton & Shining Cliffs Fell Races...if you are a nutter!

Bamford Sheepdog Trial Fell Race: 31 May 2004


Nottinghamshire athletes had a great day out at the Bamford Sheepdog Trial Fell Race on Bank Holiday Monday. It was a hot and sunny day. The race suited road runners, having a fast leg out for about 2.5 miles and a fast decent from Win Hill (900ft ascent in no time at all!). It was Ben and Terry's first fell race, Ben after doing 17m yesterday and Terry after spending too much time in a traffic jam at Chatsworth!
