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.

Very hot, very hilly!

Whilst the stalwarts were jogging round Swingate, the next generation were cutting their teeth at the Worthington 5 near East Midlands Airport. Joe and Max whipped round the 1.2mile fun run in 10th and 16th positions then the old man crawled round the 5 miler. It's a real grueler - the only circular course I've run that's uphill all the way! A veritable tarmac fell race. All in 26c temperatures.

A great village race starting and finishing at a real traditional Marstons pub. Worth another attempt when the temperature drops!

Bramcote for a 10.3 mile run on the Strelley-Cossall route. How about we do it in reverse for a change? Thinking to do 4-5-6-4-5-6 min @ 10k pace/effort with half duration recoveries.

Mountainous 13.7M run from Tennis Centre incorporating some of the infamous Mapperly Hills. Give me a text if you're interested, start time is flexible.

Saturday 04 July - 9am
Wollaton Park easy 7.5 mile run for 1 hour, meet at St. Leonard's Avenue, Wollaton - worth checking to see who's about.
