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.

To run in the leagues you need to be a member of an affiliated club, a couple of us have joined Redhill Road Runners so that we can compete this year. If you want to compete, join a club now. Most of us are in one club or another. If you want any help with this, see Gary, Ben, AndyT, Simon, Toni, Rich, Paul or AndyW.
