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.

PBGP Summer Series, Townley - 2 August 2020

Not quite the excitement and buzz of conventional racing, but good sport and good competition nevertheless and good training too for those taking part.  How many times in a race does a runner find him or herself in the middle of nowhere, with no other runners close by and no supporters around to cheer them on?  In that situation, a runner has to call on that inner strength and keep pushing. - something a virtual races teaches well.  Virtual races also help you understand that in conventional racing, you should ignore what other runners around you are doing and run your own race, in your own way.  So virtual racing will enable our juniors to get a feel as to what are the best tactics for them, so when conventional racing returns, those getting out now will be better equipped and prepared for race day.

So, well done to the juniors who turned out for the first race in this series.  They all put in some good performances and were rewarded with some good results.
