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.

Daily Mirror Trophy--a reasonable request

Fri 1st Jun, 2012-from www.fellrunner.org.uk

The 3 Peaks Race was sponsored for 28 consecutive years by the Daily Mirror. We claim that this is the longest sponsorship deal in the history of British sport and nobody has seen fit to challenge us!

One of the items provided by the Daily Mirror as part of their sponsorship was a silver cup known as the Daily Mirror Trophy and awarded to the winning men’s team. The trophy went missing some years ago much to the disappointment of team winners over the past few years who have not held this perpetual trophy. We would, however, rather like our trophy back. We hate disappointing winners when they don't get presented with it and it is an integral part of our history.

I enclose herewith a list of winners over the past 10 years or so. I wonder if you could publish an appeal on the FRA website asking clubs to check their display cabinets, individual members to search through their cupboards and see if we can get our trophy restored to us. We will be quite happy for the trophy to be returned anonymously, we don't want to grind any axes, we just want our silverware back.

With kind regards

Yours sincerely
Douglas Croft
Life Vice President
