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 is an 80 mile race going from Hessle, just outside of Hull, following a circuitous route through the Yorkshire Wolds to Filey.  On the Wednesday before the race, John Boothman did not look too good and he had not been right for a little while.  Many wondered if he would indeed take part in this race.  But, he seemed keen to do so and said that he would take it steady.  Over the years, we have all heard that on many occasions, but when your toe is on the line, adrenalin takes over and common sense flies out of the window.  It therefore did not surprise anyone when John set off at a fair pace.  The question was, "how long could he keep that pace going"?  The answer was; pretty much throughout the whole of the race.  He settled down early on within the top twenty and never lost that place.  The race is effectively three consecutive marathons all in one day and this took its toll on many who had entered and they dropped out.  But John was relentless and he kept going from the start of the race at 8:00 am on Saturday morning until the finish in the wee small hours of Sunday morning and coming through some horrendous running conditions in the last four hours.  His reward was not only to get a finish, but also to finish first V60.  A good performance in itself but given how he looked on the Wednesday before the race, it was a brilliant performance.
