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.

Really Wild Boar Fell Race - 19 December 2015

The nice thing about John Boothman is that he just loves running.  He does not mess about targeting races or having a week off because he is saving himself.  If he is free and there is a race, he is out there racing.  He knows that he is not going to win, but he enjoys the run out, the freedom of the fells and afterwards a well earned pint and a chat with like minded people.

He was our only runner at this race.  He was 68th in a time of 56:41 out of a field of 125.  It was a bit slower time for him than last  year, which he puts down to the heavy going underfoot.

The race was won by Mark Nixon of Pudsey & Bramley in a time of 41:44 with Sam Tosh 2nd, Ian Holmes 3rd and Sam Watson 4th.

Question.  Will John run in The Stoop tomorrow?
