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.

This was the first of this year's Owl Events and although he weather was reasonably good for most of the evening, the tail enders were greeted with hail and mist on the summit. First home was John Whiteside of Trawden who, by the finish, had built up a lead of almost 3 minutes lead over 2nd place Andy Berry. Third back was Carl Pawson. The event was a double for Trawden with Mollie Ralphson finishing first lady. It was good to see Karen Naylor on her first Owl event and although she had a good run to the summit, on her way back down, she found that finding the footpath round the farm in the dark is not quite as easy as in the daylight.

The guess your time prize was won by Katie Towers.

I generally look forward to this run round Sharphaw, and through the natural tunnel formed by the invasive Rhododendrons. One of my favourite runs usually. Things got off to a poor start when I realised I was going to be late thus feeling the scorn of the other pub rub run regulars. I arrived at ten past seven and quickly donned the 212', my head torch and the tightest Soloman leggings money could buy. Once "adjustments" had been made I was off after the lads who had set off 10 minutes earlier without me. The first couple of fields and roads were quickly negotiated, making note that all the stiles seem to have either been damaged or removed. The one good thing about being late was being able to run on the trodden down snow the lads had already been through.
I came across the behemoth that is Jock out on an evening stroll to the trig, who in true Jock style offered me some encouragement, "they aren't far in front Fat Chew!"  So I plodded on into the darkness. I often get asked what it's like running in the dark on your own and to be honest I find it very peaceful and not being able to see the top of the hills is also a benefit. In no time I reached the trig just as the last couple of lads were getting there. The snow at this point was getting quite deep and made the going underfoot hard work. It also made it nigh on impossible to find the correct less boggy paths on the descent. So we trudged through thigh high bogs and knee deep tussocks and soon came to the last climb up through the tunnel. The tunnel though is no longer and I have to say the run is far worse for it!  Apparently the Rhododendrons have been removed because they're an invasive species which is a real shame. Back up to the trig where on arrival Jock had been writing in the snow his usual offerings of encouragement. Much to our amazement they were all spelt correctly! Then it was the 2 mile fasting blast back to the Heifer. Once in the pub, Keegan had arrived for the refreshments and banter, Carson ate bread and Pete Jackson reminisced about gaps. Next week there isn't a pub run as such, but a night owl event at Barley. Registration opens at 6.30pm and it starts at 7.30pm. Then back to the Pendle Inn for some banter and beer.
