“Surely there is no other place in this whole wonderful world quite like Lakeland ...... no other so exquisitely lovely, no other so charming, no other that calls so insistently across the distance. All who truly love Lakeland are exiles when away from it” A.W.
We meet every Tuesday at 6.30pm for a club run on the beautiful Western fells (even after only a few days of work one can feel like an exile). Our usual haunts include the fells surrounding Buttermere (Grasmoor, High Stile, Melbreak) and the Western fells around Ennerdale and Cold Fell. If the weather is bad we may stay low on the tracks and trails.
If you are visiting the area or thinking of joining the club feel free to pop along and join us.
We usually run for between 1 and 2 hours at a comfortable pace with frequent regrouping with some runners incorporating hill reps. 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.
If the schedule is quite short it means we are in the process of deciding where to run next. Please keep checking the website for updated runs. Members may also post other runs at other times e.g. weekend runs, or recces of upcoming races.
PLEASE NOTE: These runs are weather dependent and whilst we like to think we are a hardy bunch sometimes the weather does get the better of us. Please check the website for any last minute route changes.

Long drive for some, but its worth it to see John. Who will lead us on up Middle Fell, Seatallan and try to convince us that he knows where the top of Buckbarrow is. Be nice to him though.....he invited us back to his house for beer last time.
Club president lives near by............
