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.

Mid Lancs Cross Country League, Liverpool - 28 November 2015

The Liverpool Cross Country Challenge was the setting for this round of the league, where the league club runners were not only competing with each other, but also with the top British Athletes who were themselves competing for International Team places.  As a result, both the senior races set off like a veritable cavalry charge.  This certainly had an effect on our ladies team who were swept along at the start of their race and all would probably admit to going off too fast, particularly as this year, the weather meant that the race was run on energy sapping soft muddy ground. However, all three ladies dug in and earned the team valuable points in the league.

The senior men, being the last race of the day had to endure the worse conditions of all, but discounting the Internationals at the front of the field  came home in their usual closely packed formation.  The following are the overall places and times and are not the league positions.  That information will follow.
