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.

  • Ian Hodgson Relay - 3 October 2021

    Relay season has come thick and fast with many still recovering from Calderdale 16 runners made their way up to Patterdale for this Lakeland classic. Weather forecasts had been up and down on the days leading up to the race with speculation that a 'bad weather' route would have to be implemented, however this was not the case and the original route was run. A damp day in the lakes lay ahead for the BFR runners. 

    The mens team got off to a good start and as Shearer and Bez arrived at Hartsop they were in 11th place, further down the field Laura and Vic put in a strong performance to bring the ladies home in 34th and amongst the top ladies teams. Leg 2 saw Poole and Smurf & Jacqueline and Emma take the reigns from Hartsop to Kirkstone Pass, the men arrived in 8th and the ladies 58th. At Kirkstone it was over to Andy and Ben for the men and Leanne and Sarah for the ladies by Hart Crag the men were now in 13th with some catching to do and the ladies in 55th. The final leg saw Jimmy and Tom Lorraine and Molly tackle the final section back to Patterdale. The men crossed the line 13th and the ladies 55th taking 4th Ladies team, an extraordinary result battling against some strong lakeland teams.
