Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

  • Hardmoors 55 - 18 March 2017

    These races are hard.  It is like running two back to back marathons and then some, with over 8,800 foot of ascent thrown in for good measure.  This year, the race was run in the reverse order which made it even harder than usual, as all the climbs come in the second half.  

    Gary Bradley finished the race in 11:47:53 in 113th positions.  This time was slower than that which he achieved last year and he puts this down to the route reversal.  This is a pretty good achievement when you consider that 371 runners set off on this race and only 329 of them made it to the finish line.  

  • Wigan Half Marathon - 19 March 2019

    Ian Livesey and Gary Shaw made their way to Wigan to get in a Half Marathon before their spring Marathon.  It turned out to be a great decision as they finished 1st and 3rd. Livers had a good battle with James Kevan of Horwich and came home with a time of 72:19. Gary ran a good time of 76:40.

    1 Ian Livesey 72:19
