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.

Catforth Canter 5K - 8 November 2015

Terry Lonergan

This was always going to be the "B" fixture on the wind swept Fylde Coast today with hundreds of others running the Windmill 10K over at Lytham. Given that event and the "heavy rain and strong winds" forecast, it was no surprise that just 51 gathered outside the village hall for a short Remembrance Sunday reading and a minute's silence before jogging over to the start.
Fortunately the rain had blown through which was a blessing but it was clear that the last mile into the strong wind would add considerably to the 5k times; and so it proved.

Terry’s  targeted sub 23 minute timing evaporated over the last arduous mile.   23.49 for 31st.

(Catforth, just north of Preston is the venue for Wesham’s Alan Taylor’s Catforth Canter 5k series. A series of 3 Saturday evening races run on very flat, country lanes)

About us
