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.

No more training sessions

It was decided by the regular members of the training group at a meeting last night, the group will not be running any more under the NCH heading, merely as runners in a private capacity. The regular numbers have dwindled and the worsening congestion on Nottingham roads are among the reasons for this decision. So after just over 14 years the advertised Tuesday sessions have now ended.

Training Tuesdays

Last night due to heavy traffic congestion I was late arriving at the Tennis Centre so apologies to anyone who gave up waiting.
Also due to injury of key members the Bramcote run was cancelled at short notice so again apologies to anyone put out by the no shows.
Going forward I am suspending the Tennis Centre sessions until January when hopefully the traffic may have eased slightly. The Bramcote group is also suspended until there is a compliment of regulars again. It will be announced on this blog.

Nottingham Tennis Centre from 6pm: 10 mins per mile pace for about 6 - 7 miles .
Meet at each venue about 10 mins before the start times.
Initially the groups will be very small until new recruits or old friends rejoin us.
We meet up in a up in a pub afterwards for a meal and a chin wag (as we have done for years).
