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.

Longshaw Fell Race - 7 September 2013

Richard Treitl selected this race for his weekly turn out and his comments on it were:

It was a bright sunny day and the race had good mix of terrain - fields, farm tracks, rocky paths and a long stretch through bracken which was difficult to negotiate. The one big climb (up Higger Tor) came just around the half way point and after that it was a steady surge for the finish line. The conditions underfoot were generally good but I did manage to find a bog resulting in my right leg disappearing briefly, only to re-emerge covered in the familiar peat stains that one would find in the remote parts of Pendle. It was, of course, no surprise to me that I was the only one to have suffered this indignation!

Finishing position.
