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.

Salterforth Drag, Runner v Cyclist Challenge - 17 June 2015

Video of Race

This challenge was thrown down some time ago to see who could get to the top of the drag first.  It was between Stuart Bryan on the bike and Stephen Chew running.   The race did not start at the Anchor, but further up the lane where the incline gets a little steeper.  This event morphed into a money raising event for Pendleside Hospice and a surprisingly large crowd turned out and lined the route.  No sooner had the race started, from the top of the Drag, you could hear the cheering from the spectators lining the route.  Chewy went into a lead which was gradually whittled down and for a period the two contestants were side by side.  However, towards the end, Stuart managed to open up a gap and take the honours.  The times were:

Stuart Bryan 2:10
Stephen Chew 2:22

With pledges made on line and money collected on the night, the event raised £430 for Pendleside Hospice.
