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.

  • Seniors

1 Ian Nixon, Pudsey & Bramley 26:29

11 Andrew Driver 28:53
46 Glenn Whittaker 34:18

As if the Fairfield Horseshoe was not long enough and hard enough in the warm conditions yesterday, John Boothman also turned out for this race.  Not perhaps his best performance, but not bad taking everything into account.

Today was a proud day for the club seeing our first member ever awarded a county vest, do battle with the other top runners of the fell running world.  Sarah had a good first run out in top flight company, finishing in 28th position and helping Lancashire to a 3rd team place.

In 1972, the monolithic county of Cumbria came into being, replacing the historic counties of Cumberland, Westmorland & Lancashire which previously had subdivided the Lakes.  The highest peaks in those old counties were Sca Fell Pike, Hellvellyn and Coniston Old Man, respectively.  This race visits the highest points in those old counties, a route that covers a distance of 37 miles.  The race is run in pairs. We had an all Barlick team of Sam Wadsworth & Lucas Payne, whilst Barlicker Andy Hirst ran with Kirsty Hall of Wharfedale.  Just over a minute separated these two pairs, although they each ran their own separate races.

James Fent also ran and finished in 7th position, but forgot his bar code, which is a shame, as his time of around 20:15 would have been a new PB.
