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.

Lothersdale Show Fell Race - 20 July 2024

Lothersdale Show Fell Race is one of the oldest fell races still in existence, being first run in 1847.  It is probably one of the few fell races left where both young and old run together.  The race starts in the road by  the show field and goes past the school until it turns sharp right up Sidegate Lane. A short distance up the lane, there is a road on the left.  Turn left into this lane and then turn right, through a gate and on to the fell.  Follow the flags up to the summit of Town Edge. From the summit there is a steep descent back down to cross Sidegate Lane. Then a steep drop over a wall before returning through the fields to climb the wall and run back up the road, towards the show field.
