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 2024

Fell running in the Lake District.  That is what sorts out the men from the boys.  There are two course for this race.  The short course which is over 13 miles and incorporates 5,00 ft of ascent.  Tom Corrigan took part in this race and he threw down the gauntlet to everyone else right from the start by taking the lead and setting the pace for this race by being the fastest runner in each of the first four legs up to Whiteless Pike.  At that point, he had built up a 5 minute lead.  But racing in the Lakes is tough and the chasing Paul Preston was not giving up.  In leg 6 up to Melbreak, Paul closed the gap and took the lead by 18 seconds.  .  But on the last leg to the finish, Tom pulled out all of the stops, once more taking the lead and finally running out the race winner by 13 seconds.  It was exciting racing and well done to Paul Preston for having the grit and determination to make a race of it. 

The other race is the long race which is 22 miles, incorporating 8260 ft of climb.  Julian Hood entered this race and again put in a good performance to finish in 8th place and 1st M40.  Great racing for both runners.

Short Race
1 Tom Corrigan 2:36:39 (1st M40)

Long Race
8 Julian Hood 4:48:35 (1st M40)
