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.

Run Bolton Abbey - 12 November 2023

These are a series of charity races with the proceeds going to Sue Ryder.  The main event is the half marathon which attracted top runner Chris Holdsworth from Clayton and as you might expect, he won it in a time of 1:23:15.

John Boothman, our only representative, came home in 32nd place.

In the 10 mile race, Fionnula Swann had a good run to finish 1st woman and 8th overall.

It seems that those who thought that Chloe Boothman had left running to concentrate on horse jumping were mistaken.  She not only took part in the pub run last Wednesday, but she also entered the 10K race today where she finished 129th out of 211 finishers.

It was a good family day out for the Boothmans as mum Angela went to watch and after the racing, everyone enjoyed a bit of lunch together.
