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.

Run Bolton Abbey - 12 November 2017

Report of the day by junior member Jenna Boothman

A beautiful setting along with equally beautiful weather, a hilly course for all the races, with trails, tracks, woods and plenty of mud.

First to set off were the 10k runners (me, Emily Shuttleworth, Richard Starkie, Tony Duffy, Billy Haines and Gary Parkinson). Next up were the 10 mile runners (James Austin, Andrew Smith and Shirley Smith). Then the half marathon runner (John Boothman). Finally, the 2 mile fun run commenced (Lucille Pickles, Chloe Boothman and Ciara Duffy). The 10k runners got off to a good start but stumbled upon a problem about 3k into the race. The Barlick runners (and many more) managed to take a wrong turn! This added around 2k on to their run making it 12k rather than 10k.
