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.

Hendon Brook - 7 July 2019

This is the real tough challenge in the Grand Prix Series and there was some quality competition at the front of the field.  Credit therefore is due to our two athletes with a top ten finish, Jon Cleaver and Andy Collins.  Jon has written an interesting account of the day from the perspective of battling it out in the tough environment at the front of the field.

"The Jewel in the the GP crown. 2000ft half(ish) marathon taking in the stunning countryside of Pendle. I set of with the intention of hitting it hard and going for broke to try and make the immortal Hall of Fame list of runners who had made it round in under 83 minutes. From the start I knew a Podium was going to be tough with the 3 times champ David Rigby, Ben Fish & Ben Coop toeing the line. I was leading the race until the climb to the Shooters where the Ben(s) took over which was fairly inevitable at some point. I stuck with Rigby until just after Thursden where I started to put a gap into him. For the rest of the race I was on my own versus the clock as I knew that third would happen as long as I kept on pushing and Coop had too big a gap for me to claw back. In the end I came in 01:22:18 which I was delighted with. On the day fortune favoured the brave!

Some other cracking runs from the club with Andy Collins & Andy Berry in the men’s seniors putting in solid times.

On to the next one!

PS - Shout out to Luke Turner who is on his way back in the BFR vest. One to watch in a few months!"
