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.

Andy Heading holds the lead. He arrived in Carmacks at 23:28 on Valentine’s Day and left at 6:31 this morning. Only his sled is a little worse for wear, with one stay missing and a snow-scooping hole burnt through the bottom.

Yukon 14/02/2007

The remaining 460 milers are doing what they should do. They take their time. Andy Heading is currently in the lead by about 6 hours. However, there is still such a long distance to go that it is difficult to say what will happen.

Everybody who is still in the race is fine as far as I know at the moment. Again it was a very cold night with temperatures down to – 30 degrees Celsius. For the first time there were great Northern Lights.

Yukon Trail 460 miles [4 hour time difference]

Race Report: 'It was – 30 degrees Celsius on parts of the trail last night. Together with the long distance and the many hills this gave the athletes a really hard time. Right now it is - 30 again and I expect it to drop to - 35 over the next few hours. It will be a night the athletes will never forget.'
