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 12 July, 6:30pm - Bramcote Leisure Ctr.

It's £6 on the night for unaffiliated runners. I spoke to the Race Secretary, apparently the course is flat / mildly undulating (last week's winner ran 13:44 apparently!!!), course is accurately measured but no markers, mixture of asphalt and grass (road shoes recommended).

Thursday 14 July, (Note Race Start at 7:30pm) - The Lord Elliott endorsed Historic Hardwick Hall 6 - Hardwick Hall, Pilsley.
