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.

This event was held at Dalby forest and was the North Yorkshire Schools Cross Country finals.  This was the culmination of several rounds covering all North Yorkshire Schools.  

Jacob Reeday ran in year 6 boys and had a storming run.  He was well clear coming out of the woods, finished way ahead of the rest of the field and winning in amazing style.  What a way to win a final.

Lucille Pickles and Chloe Boothman ran in the year 6 girls.  Lucille had a great run and was 4th coming out of the woods, but she got pipped by a couple of other runners and finished 6th.  Chloe had a really strong run, finishing somewhere mid field.


Jack Villiers only started running two years ago and this is his first year as an U15, and this weekend, he had the honour of representing his county in this race.  This reflects the hard work and consistent training that he has put in.  He finished 198th out of 303 in a time of 21:13.

Jack Villiers is learning the art of running towards the front of the race and following his win last week at Sedbergh, he followed it up this week with a 2nd place behind James Bowen of Ambleside.

For the second weekend running, Jack Villiers has taken part in two races.  Having secured a place yesterday in the Lancashire Schools team, it was once more back to the fells for Jack.  Amazingly, after the effort he put in yesterday, he still managed a podium finish.

A few of our juniors were out today representing their local schools in the Lancashire Schools Cross Country Championships at Witton Park.  Jack Villiers had an outstanding performance, not only leading his Pendle Team home, but holding off strong challenges from the third and fourth place finishers to take second place overall.  His reward is that he will be going to Leeds to represent Lancashire in the Inter Counties School Championship.
