Farewell

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.

Snowdon Race over! Cracking weather in Snowdonia this weekend. 62:50 (no walking) to the summit and 38 minutes descent (no walking); not quite what it says in the results because on the descent I managed to help an Irish Runner that fell and hit her throat on a jug shaped rock; de Ja Vue for me! She's fine by the way. Snowdon Race is now a bit 'Chavy' with lots of drunken youths from the surronding area and a bit of a car-boot on the field, there was a heavy Police prescence with stab vests and CCTV vans. The international contingent were home grown, Wales, Scotland et. al., Probably one to miss from now on.

Managed the same run on Sunday: 70 mins to the top (no walking) and a 40 minute descent (no walking) after scavenging drinks from the fantastic summit cafe. If you go you HAVE to go to Steff's www.snowdoncafe.com.
