We organise a few fell races:
and we help out with the Duddon Valley races in late May. Follow the links for details and results.
In the winter most of our social runs move onto the road but someone will usually organise a longer run on the fells at the weekend. Fell shoes do very well in deep snow. We also organise a winter training league of Sunday morning fell, cross-country and road chases, including the dreadful Po House hangover cure on New Year’s Day.
From spring to autumn our social runs range across the southern fells from Eskdale to Windermere, and each year we pick a different set of local races for our road and fell championships. Midsummer is celebrated with a picnic run up Sca Fell, and later in the summer the club sets its members a challenge: this year we ran a longer version of Joss’s lakes, meres and tarns route to finish at a big barbecue by Coniston water.
We have runners of all ages, abilities and interests, and roughly equal numbers of men and women. New members are always welcome and membership is very cheap, but you don’t have to join the club to come out for a run. Check the calendar, get some fell shoes and join us any time.
