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.

Lantern Pike Fell Race Saturday 16 May 2009

A great value race at £3 entry on the day with free food and drink at the finish. Remarkably friendly and well organised.

Starts at the bottom of a steep wooded slope and the runners go up it like ascending a trench in the first world war! From then on it's runnable.

Aye up!

Congratulations to Andy and Glennys on today's wedding.

A short and sweet service in the Moravian Church in Ockbrook followed by a reception in the Royal Oak.

An excellent time was had by all.

PS For those of you with an obsession for value for money races, it was FREE entry, FREE food and as much FREE beer as you could drink!! (For everyone except Andy that is!)
