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.

    Summer League at Worksop

    Hi All

    The 4th road race is week WEDS 12TH JULY at WORKSOP (approx 5.5m but certainly under 6m) in Clumber Park, great venue & course (no daft hills, this time)

    Usual 7.15pm start

    Leave Nottingham north on the A614 until Ollerton roundabout (approx 13 miles), take the 2nd left onto the A616 until you reach a mini roundabout (further 3 miles), turn right here and go straight on at the next mini roundabout (which is almost next to the 1st one) and onto the B6034 which takes you towards Worksop (another 5 miles).

    Approaching Worksop there is a left turn which would lead you down a steep hill to Worksop itself, dont take this turn, go straight on and take the next RIGHT and into the School and race venue (400m further on) rough map attached (Takes about 35-40 minutes from Redhill centre)

    Latest road race results & a diverse selection of what else we have all been up to recently are now uploaded at http://www.redhillroadrunners.com

    See you all there
