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.

Report by John Boothman

 I have to say it was a big day.  We left at 7.15, about 2.5 hour drive, then near 6 hours running and then the drive home.  It is the toughest race I have done to date. Stephen Shorrock set off well but the distance and climb took its toll and he lost time in the second half but still finished first Barlicker.

Tom Addams of Ilkley Harriers won this race in 37:29 setting a new course record.

The race was won by Julian Hood of Skipton AC in a time of 38:01.  Andy Collins had a cracking run to finish in third place and as first Barlicker.  Andy had a very determined run and was chasing down second place Neil Crompton of Pudsey & Bramley on the long run in from the second visit to the Sharp Haw summit, but he could not quite catch him. Further down the field, Pete Jackson looked to be going well and so it proved as he romped home first V60.

There were quite a few of our girls out in this race and it was good to see so many of our women members getting out to support.  They were led home by Laura Craig who ihad a good race to improve on her time of last year by seven minutes.  Jean Rawlinson always seems to defy her age when she gets out on the fells and she came home first F65.  Amanda Haynes and Lucy Creasey are two recent recruits to running and both did well in this race.  It was, in fact, Lucy's first ever fell race.  She picked a tough one to start with, but she rose to the challenge and put in a great performance that left seven other runners in her wake.

A well organised and marshalled race with the results quickly published - well done the Dashers.

The race was won by Marc Sennett of Wharfedale, with our own Steve Shorrock in 2nd place.  For much of the race, Chris Barnes was in 2nd place, but he got lost and earned himself a DNF.

 Anna’s comments   Before starting this race the weather was quite warm, but this did not stop me thinking I could go under 18 minutes for 5k. Although the route was very flat, when running the race it was very windy all the way around the course which meant I had to use lots of strength and effort to push through it. Annoyingly, this meant that during the last mile I was feeling pretty burnt out and struggled to conserve some of my energy for the final part of the race. In the end I was the first lady to cross the finish line in 18.03 which I am pleased with as it's a PB and I now hold the course record. Other than this the atmosphere was great , large crowds of people cheering and it felt good to be part of a carnival.

Terry’s comments   Recent 10K races forecasted a reasonable target would have been 24 minutes for this 5K race just south of Preston , so I was pleased to come away with 23.39. Starting at 12.30 the race virtually acted as a warm up to the carnival parade and the rest of the day’s activities, so the encouragement from the crowd and the sun on the shoulders was appreciated. Shame that the wind took the edge of the times.

205 finished.
