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.

Buttermere Horseshoe - 22 June 2019

Gary Bradley Gary Bradley

Just one Barlicker in this tough Lakeland classic - Gary Bradley.  Entries were limited to 120 of which 30 took the short route and 90, including Gary took the long one.  Gary enjoyed the day out and commented on it as follows:

An absolutely belting day out, but the hot weather did take its toll early on until there were streams in which to cool off.  The 22 mile, 8,250ft route is brutal with long steep climbs, steep descents & rough ground.  Wasdale lays claim to be the toughest Lakes AL, but after yesterday I’m not so sure - this is one severe test of fitness & perseverance.  Just what a great fell race should be.  And the refreshments provided at the finish by the organisers are second to none, even beer on tap!
