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.

HELP NEEDED
Dave Walsh (Redhill RR) is doing the Three Peaks Yacht Race on 28 June - 3 July 2008. This is a great chance to do a fantastic race and a good reason to kick the job into touch!

You sail from Barmouth, Wales on Saturday 28th June and the 'end of race party' is Thursday 3rd July. You won't be required to do anything on the boat (except rest & recover for the next leg), and need to do all 3 peaks.

Snowdon is 24 miles (16 of which on road), Scafell is 17 miles cycle then 18 miles fell running and 17 miles cycle back to Caernarfon. Ben Nevis is 17 miles (including 8+ miles of road).

Dave has all the kit, a competitive boat and crew. The team has a chance of a medal, both on the mountains and overall. Please either contact Gary or Dave Walsh if you are interested.
