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.

Dales Way Challenge - 17 August 2019

Running ultra races is something else.  This particular race was 82 miles in length.  To put that in perspective, a marathon is a fair challenge for anyone.  Well this is three marathons, one after the other, with a park run thrown in at the end, just for good measure.  To do that, you have to be physically fit, but you also need mental toughness to get you through the stress to which you are subjecting your body.  Lucas Payne has both, having done lots of Ironman Challenges when he was younger. but this was something else.  Although he is fit, he probably did not put the hours in on his feet when training and it was his sheer determination that saw him come through in the end.  

He has written an account of the day, which is below.
