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.

Berlin Marathon Results

Pos and Cat Pos
63 4 Bennett, Ben (GBR) M40 Redhill 02:31:14 02:31:08
64 15 Keal, Robert (GBR) M35 Notts AC 02:31:14 02:31:08

Very well done men, though commiserations on missing the 2 hours 30mins target. The videos of the finishes are not yet available at the time of writing; the respective positions suggest a first London Marathon type finish.
