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.

Tuesday 14th December - Geoff's group

Business as usual this Tuesday; subject to my foot having recovered sufficiently. During Papplewick at the top of Sand Hill I trod on a tree root and it pushed my foot back painfully. I had to walk from Pylon Hill back to Papplewick as the pain was too much, but it is in rehab now. Take it I will be there unless there is an update posting this week.

Kick off 6.30 p.m
