Social runs

The club has a different social run every week. In the summer they're always on the fells. In the winter there are more hilly road runs, but we'll still take any excuse (if it's a full moon, or nice weather, or interestingly nasty weather) to go up on the fells instead.

We usually run 6 or 7 miles at an easy pace with frequent regrouping. Sometimes a fast group will decide to go further or a slow group to stay lower: it varies each week with the terrain and the turnout.

Tue 24

Caw Recce

06:30pm on 24 April at Broughton Mills Reading Room Car Park

Led by Will, who if you are lucky will be too far back to suggest a route. Slower group will go with Rob and might set off from Stephenson's Ground: check forum or facebook for plans. Blacksmiths in Broughton Mills afterwards, so please pre-order food if you plan to eat.

Tue 01

Dow and White Maiden

06:30pm on 01 May at Torver

Or similar, depending on weather and level of determination. Old Man possible. Led by Matt T from Torver and going to the Church House afterwards. A slower group will be led by Sue and probably go up the Walna Scar road.

Tue 08

Grey Friar and Swirl How

06:30pm on 08 May at Newfield Inn

Led by Josh and Jess, which takes too long to type so I will abbreviate it to Joss for maximum confusion. Led by Joss from the Newfield. I'm only guessing about Swirl How. Ian will lead a slower and possibly earlier group up the same route.

Tue 15

Beacon from Blawith

06:30pm on 15 May at Crake Valley Layby

Led by Julian from Blawith, it says here. Perhaps that's the Malarkey start at the big lay-by on the Torver road. Probable swim in Beacon Tarn, then the Royal Oak in Spark Bridge afterwards.

Tue 22

Black Combe from Ralliss

06:30pm on 22 May at Ralliss

Led by Will, who will be fit by then and have no trouble keeping up with the people he is leading. Phil will lead a slower group. Punchbowl pie afterwards. Usual arrangement: excellent meat and veggie options, please make sure you tell Dave you'd like one.

Every couple of months we have a semi-formal meeting that deals briefly with any club business before getting onto the important subject of where we should run next. If this list is quite short, that means we're about to make a new one. To stay up to date, you can get either the whole BCR calendar or just the social runs as an automatically-updated calendar feed.
