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
  • For members over the age of 18

For the second weekend running, Jack Villiers has taken part in two races.  Having secured a place yesterday in the Lancashire Schools team, it was once more back to the fells for Jack.  Amazingly, after the effort he put in yesterday, he still managed a podium finish.

A few of our juniors were out today representing their local schools in the Lancashire Schools Cross Country Championships at Witton Park.  Jack Villiers had an outstanding performance, not only leading his Pendle Team home, but holding off strong challenges from the third and fourth place finishers to take second place overall.  His reward is that he will be going to Leeds to represent Lancashire in the Inter Counties School Championship.

It was good to see two of our juniors out in these championship races, gaining very valuable race experience. George Fitzpatrick was out in the under 11 race and Jack Villiers  ran in the U15 race where he finished in 10th position.  As a result, he will be getting a letter to stand by as a reserve to represent Lancashire in the Inter County Championship and he will get a place if others have to drop out.

They finished as follows:

47 George Fitzpatrick 7:56

Jack Villiers started the New Year in style by going off and testing himself in a senior fell race.  And what a great performance he put in too, finishing in 28th position out of a field of 153.  In fell running, every race is different and the first time you have a go at a race, you never run it as well as you could have done, as you are learning the course.  Expect an even higher place from Jack if he has another go at this race next year.

Jack Villiers took part in this one mile race and had a great run to come home in 2nd place.

What a finish in the U11 boys race.  It was neck and neck as Jacob Reeday and Sammy Pickerill of Southport raced towards the line, with Sammy just edging it by a fraction of a second.  But what tremendous spirit showed by Jacob.  That is what racing is all about.
