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.

Calver Peak Fell Race Results 2009

Calver Peak Finish from the pub :)

Andrew Hunter 20th (S) ~36:05
Gary McMahon (D) 32nd, 2nd (V50) 37:10
Nick Lander 62nd 39:58
Simon Elliott 64th (V50) 40:15

Report (Andy Hunter) The evenings entertainment started with a left handed catch from Dark Peaks Andy Moore, following a single road bounce into the registration area, definitely a 6 for that one. Thanks to Simon for driving, the next 6 went past his motor and across the car park. A pleasant evening, not too hot and very dry under foot. No surprises with the course, the steep climb out the village sorted out the men from the boys ready for the steeper parts to come. Gary let me go from the start and watched me slowly get away, Simon struggled with the steep start, so a tougher warm up for him in future.
