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.

Longshaw Sheepdog Trials Fell Race 2009

A gem of a Fell Race. It's an add-on to the Sheep Dog Trails and the range of trophys for that event is stunning. Prizes were handed out by the Duke of Devonshire and my prize of a jar of Pickles will now be called 'Dukes Pickles'

The field was squelchy and soon covered in deep mud. The runner who came to the race on his tractor did a nice sideline in dragging runners cars off the field.

Gary McMahon 1st V50 (Jar of Pickles)

The prize that was worth winning.
