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

    We had lots of runners out in the Tour of Pendle, but this left us with depleted numbers in this race.  Craig Shearer can always be relied upon to put in a strong performance and he finished in the leading group, coming home in third place.

    Men win the team prize

    Dan Mills had a cracking run to finish third  in this race.  Luckily, he was not alone, with another three team mates also putting in great performances to finish in the top ten.  No one else had this strength in depth and the club came away with the team prize.

    In the ladies race, Emma Taylor had a particularly good run to secure a top ten finish against some stern competition.

  • Glentress Half Marathon - 17 November 2018

    Des Walkden has been quietly working away at his running and today, it paid off.  He was flying past people down the "black runs", a sight that we have not seen from Des for a while, finishing in a respectable time of 1:55 and  4th in his age category.
