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.

European Racing - 2005

We're wondering if there might be interest in heading over to Europe to do a bit of racing next year. How about......

Paris 1/2 Marathon - 6th March 2005
We could fly with BMIBaby from East Mids:

Sat, 05 Mar 05 - Flight WW5011
09:40 Depart Nottingham East Midlands (EMA)
12:10 Arrive Paris (CDG)

Mon, 07 Mar 05 - Flight WW5012
10:05 Depart Paris (CDG)
10:20 Arrive Nottingham East Midlands (EMA)

total: £69.88

There's a thread on RW Forums regarding the race - sounds like a good 'un.
Anyone up for it??

Another possibility is.......

Prague 1/2 Marathon - 2nd April 2005

How about we do the Stapleford route (map) for a change?

Thursday 4th November - 6pm - Tennis Centre

Anyone fancy the 8.5M Wollaton route (map)?

Easy 1 hour session round the Park & Uni - if you want it to be ridiculously easy run with Ben, Gary will explain ;-)

How about we head West towards Trent Lock and then up the Erewash canal for a bit. Plenty of options for varying distances.

Nice one people, care on the training, things are going well!

Cicuit Training - every Wednesday

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 2nd November - Geoff's Group

Back to normal this Tuesday. 9 miles fartlek is the fare. Kick off as with the others 6.30pm
