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.

Gravy Pud Fell Race - 7 December 2014

The Gravy Pud is a category BS fell race of 5 miles/1001ft, from the village of Tintwistle, on the edge of the Peak District.

It was very cold and wet at the start of this race.   Almost all of it was on good, runnable tracks (albeit very muddy in places) with no visibility problems and the more exposed area was well marshalled.   

The route heads up on to the moors above the village, initially via a farm track leading to the local high point of Lees Hill before descending through the trees of Swallows Wood, and along the top edge of Arnfield Reservoir, to re-join the farm track back to the finish.

The winner was Tom Saville of Dark Peak Fell Runners in a time of 35 minutes 59 seconds.
Richard Treitl finished 142nd in 1:01:08s.

There were 155 finishers.
