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.

Race to the Stones 100K Ultra - 13 July 2019

Tim Pigott receiving the winner's cheque Tim Pigott receiving the winner's cheque

Tim Pigott won this ultra race, although not perhaps in the manner he would have wished.  Tom Fairbrother was leading and with only five miles to go, he took a wrong turn.  When he realised what he had done, instead of back tracking to the point where he went wrong, he tapped the finish line into his phone and followed the directions to take him there.  In doing so, he actually ran an extra mile.  Even though he approached the finish in the wrong direction, he was greeted as the winner, until the organisers realised what had happened.  When they did, he was disqualified and Tim, who had been in second place was declared the winner.  As Tim said, "He made an epic error and ended going along the main road - it's a trail race and was disqualified, but I am gutted that he did not get the prize he deserved".  

But your ability to follow the route is much a part of the event as as having the physical fitness to endure being on your feet for nine hours and as hard as it was on Tom, Tim Pigott got the honours.
