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.

Bronte Way runs through the most stunningly beautiful country from Lancashire (God's own country) to Yorkshire passing the Bronte Falls, Vicarage and the site of Wuthering Heights. You can see from the picture that this water belongs to Yorkshire.

I passed this many times on my training runs from home and it proved to be a good toilet stop.

The run is fast and fairly flat on stone tracks with two minor climbs, the final descent into Haworth is hugh and the last 500m is steep up hill on cobbles.




And finishes off with a free bottle of Timothy Taylors and pie and peas.
