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.

  • Seniors

Jonathan Cleaver set off determined to give the lads from Blackburn Harriers a run for their money and led everyone out of Townley Park onto the roads.  However, he was up against some class competition and when they returned Ben Fish was leading, with Jacob Watson second and John Cleaver third - all finishing under the 34 minute mark - some top class racing from all three.  Luke Turner continues to improve and finished just outside the top ten.

In the ladies race, Jacqueline Collins had a good run to finish 3rd lady.

Full Results

This show used to take place in September, but is now being put on earlier in the year in the hope of enjoying some better weather on the day.  Unfortunately, when planning this change, the Young Farmers never gave any thought about the fell race and with a week to go, no race had been planned.  Wharfedale Harriers normally host this race, but they could not help this year, due to it clashing with the Alva Games.

However, with the help from a couple of locals in the village, the race went ahead and even at such short notice, it managed to attract 17 runners.  

First home was Ian Beresford of Barlick, who was effectively having a duel with team mate Lee "Swell" Hird.  Third home was James Fieldhouse who wenet home with two trophies, one for being the first young farmer and the other for finishing first local.

The Lothersdale Show Fell Race harks back to the Victorian era and in common with races at that time, all competitors run together, bot young and old.  As a result, the first lady home was under 14 Megan Wilkinson and her father took much delight in confiscating the bottle of wine which she had won, leaving her just with a rather attractive iced ginger bread figure, which she won as first GU14.

The weather was kind for the new date and hopefully, next year will attract more runners to this historic race.

Lothersdale Show Fell Race is one of the oldest fell races still in existence, being first run in 1847.  It is probably one of the few fell races left where both young and old run together.  The race starts in the road by  the show field and goes past the school till it turns sharp right up Sidegate Lane. A short distance up the lane, there is a track on the left.  Climb a fence by this track and bear right up the ridge to the summit of Town Edge. From the summit there is a steep descent back down to cross Sidegate Lane. Then a steep drop over a wall before returning through the fields to climb the wall and run back up the road, towards the show field.
