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.

Race Reports

  • Buckden Pike - Saturday 18 June 2022

     It was almost a perfect day for racing.  It was not too hot, it was dry underfoot and the only drawback was a strong head wind on the top.  Being both a British & an English Championship race, it brought all the top runners in the UK together.  The first runner home was Finlay Wild who broke the long standing record for this race set by Colin Donnelly in 1988.  Not only did he break the record for the race, but he cycled over from Oxenholme in the Lake District after catching the train down from Fort William.  What probably spurred him on to this new record time was the fact that he was being hotly pursued by Daniel Haworth of Matlock AC who came home in second place.  It was an inncredible performance from these two athletes.  This was fell racing at its best.  These two were followed by Matthew Elkington of Ambleside AC

    What was also remarkable was that the fact that the fourth runner home was an MU23 and is only 18 years old.  It was Finlay Grant of Dark Peak.  This young man has a very bright future in the sport.

    In the ladies race, Sarah Willhoit was leading  at the summit cairn, but on the descent, she was passed by race winner Hannah Russell and second place Nicola Jackson.

    Behind the first three, Sharon Taylor put in a good performance to finish first FV40and Eve Pannone was first FU23 in 7th place.
