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.

Harriers v Cyclists - 21 November 2015

After much talking and fronting up on Facebook, it was time to see yet again who out of the cyclists and the runners was top dog.  We had Jock, Pete Piestabber, James 'Lego Hair' Fent and John 'Satnav' Boothman on the bikes.  On foot, it was The Smalenator, Andy 'Vice' Berry, Screw, Lucious Lowther, Ballbag Bob, Happy Halliday, Nicky K, Hannah Newby and Pot King Whitbread.  Things were quickly underway and a quick inspection of the course made for bad reading if your a cyclist.  Tom Adams was already well ahead of the rest at mile 1 and carried his fantastic form on with another race record at the front.  The first 6 Runners were back before Ian Taylor started the rush of cyclists.

The Smalenator was pre race favourite, but came a cropper and just jogged round leaving the way clear for Andy Berry to take the Barlick honours.  Next came Screw with Jock in hot pursuit.  Jock took it with a death defying descent in the final field.  Until the results are out, I can't comment further on the race.  We retired back to the rugby club for a quick jar, where on arrival we found out that Chris Barnes had beat Andy Berry in a dash for the line.   One pint of poor Tetleys was enough, so we decided The Airedale Heifer was better prepared for our requirements.  Plenty of banter and rubbing it in about how thoroughly useless cyclists are in the mud.  Jock, for once, had to admit defeat.  It's nearly time to stop shoe horning himself into his Lycra, especially when it's bright snot green.  For once Ball Bag was quiet, which was a blessing.  Looking forward to the presentation next week with this quality set of folk.
