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.

  • Seniors

A new cross country season and a new competition for the club. After the success, in recent years in the mid lancs league, it is almost like starting again.  For the men's team, Jon Cleaver put in a good performance to lead them home.  Nick Treitl did not look his usual self and he ended up finishing further down the field than we would normally expect of him.  For the ladies  team, Jacqueline Collins led them home with a sterling performance which saw her finish just outside the ten.  It was good to see some new faces in the ladies team and they will only get better with experience.  The teams finished as follows:


24 Jon Cleaver 37:24
58 Scott Boardman  41:16
70 James Austin 42:09
100 Shane Muller 43:56

Great performances and team work today saw the club finish in 10th position, which is our second best position in this race since the club was formed in 2013.  The club only finished higher in 2014 when they came home in eighth place.   The opening pair of Ian Beresford & Tim Chadwick got the team off to a sound start, handing over at Hartsop to Craig Shearer and David Mirfield.  This pair tore into the opposition, pushing the team into 8th place by the Kirkstone Inn handover.  Andy Berry and David Poole then set off up the long steep climb of Red Screes and lost a place before handing over to the final leg runners of Nick Treitl and Luke Maude.  They too lost a place, as they found themselves up against the formidable duo of Ian Holmes & Victoria Wilkison.  However, it was a great all round performance and sets up a sound platform for future years.

Rachel Villiers not only won this race, but she did it in style, finishing way out on her own, with a comfortable lead of almost three minutes over the chasing pack.  A truly great performance. A good run too from James Austin who secured a top twenty finish out of a starting field of 225 runners.

This is a new race this year, organised by Trawden AC and it was just a bit of a tester.  It is  26.2 miles with 4,495 ft of ascent and similar to the Yorkshireman.  Next year this race will be on the 22nd September 2019 under the guise of The Lancashireman!

Tim Piggot set off at a steady pace which he maintained throughout the race and took the victory.  John Boothman surprisingly found himself in second place, but he had to battle as it is a while since he ran such a distance.
