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.

Ennerdale Horse Shoe - 8 June 2013

A few runners complained about the heat in the five and a half mile Weets Race.  Imagine running 23 miles in the same conditions.  That is what Andy Hirst did and it took him five and three quarter hours.  He finished 84th out of 140 runners and felt that he did not have a particularly good run, being 20 minutes down on his last year's time and 39 minutes slower than his pb.  He was 100th on Kirk Fell, so he made up 16 places over Pillar and Haycocks.

His split times were:

Great Borne           46:32
Red Pike             1:18:48
Black Beck Tarn  2:12:12
Green Gable        2:49:12
Kirk Fell              3:18:08
Pillar                   4:01:24
Haycock             4:35:07
Iron Crag             4:59:23
Crag Fell             5:27:11
Finish                 5:46:07
Andy has written a full account of his day.
