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.

Circuit Training - Wednesday 27th October

Circuit training is getting established with the small core of regulars appreciating the programme. More regulars are still needed.

Making circuit training part of the weekly training routine improves performance by training muscle groups that do not get much benefit from mileage or efforts sessions and helps to balance up fitness between different parts of the body. Because of this it helps prevent running injuries.

This is of particular concern at the moment as there are a number of runners associated with the bloggers training groups suffering from long term injuries. Don't let it happen to you!

Circuit training is held at Noel St Leisure Centre 7pm - 8pm Cost GBP2.90 (2.65 with Nottingham City Leisure card). Located very near Shipstone St Tram stop and the Lion Moseley Street.

Tuesday 26th October - Geoff's Group

This week Tracey Hallam will lead the group. It will be a 6 miles approx steady run.

Unfortunately I will not be there due to work commitments, I should be back for the usual fartlek session next Tuesday 2nd November.
