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.

Pub Run, The Old Stone Trough - 14 October 2015

This week, the pub run took us to Kelbrook. This is usually my least favourite pub run as Kelbrook Moor is a tad boring and has a ridiculous smattering of heather on the top with no proper trods or lines to be seen.  With this in mind I decided to go for a steady 5 mile run with young svelte Chew.  Leading the run was perennial non turner upper, Glenn 'Palin' Whittaker.  On the run this week, we had a right novelty!  Females!   Rachel 'The Boss' Lowther, Kirsty 'Tight Bugger' Hall and Leanne 'Terminator' Dinsdale.  The only moment of note to mention from the run itself were that the group got charged by cows, which I'm glad I missed, as I'm not very fond of the black and white beasts. The cows cut Kirsty adrift from the rest of the group and she too isn't very fond of them either.  It bodes well for Saturday's nav leg though, as Rachel guided them back to the Stone Trough with very little deviation.  The rest of the posse made their way back but unfortunately for us, the pub was busy and they were down to the last real ale.  So a quick swift exit and we ended up at the Craven Heifer.  I'm supposed to be on a diet but Wainwright's was on.  This is like a great white smelling blood in the sea.  The only man not so sure about coming to the Heifer was Andy Collins, knowing Jax would be sat at the bar flicking the whip.  Wadsworth made a welcome return after his holiday in Italy.  He looks more like Boycott everyday.  Banterer of the week has to go to Rachel though.  Rendered me speechless with a few cracking one liners about weight and needing to lose it.  They were all here this week, the back bone of the pub run reinstated. .  Best night of the week if you want the craic, a run and most importantly, beer!  Can't remember where we are next week but the new list was approved.  Hopefully somewhere more exciting than Kelbrook Moor then I can have summat to write about.
