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 5 July - 6:30pm - Bramcote Leisure Ctr.
The Tuesday night "bread-and-butter" 10M.

I'm planning on doing a steady 15M, if anyone wants to join me, let me (Ben) know and I'll come to Bramcote and do the session from there, otherwise I'll be leaving straight from Beeston earlier (5-5:30pm).

Thursday 7 July - 7:15pm Colwick Park
Heritage Series Race #4 - 5M

Friday 8 July - 7:30pm Elvaston Castle & Country Park
Tara Kinder 10k

Numbers are available on the night, apparently. Judging by the popularity of road races in general and the Heritage Series in particular (the 10k sold out on 28/06) it might be an idea to get there a little early. You could always give the Derby Runner a bell (01332 740825) and ask them if they're anywhere near filling the race.


Saturday 2 July - 9:00am - St. Leonard's Drive, Wollaton (Park)
University and Park run of ~1 hour.

Sunday 3 July - 9:00am Tennis Center
13 mile easy run.
