Club Runs

“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.

Date Location Details
18th Dec Felldyke Car Park NY 085 199

Parking is a real challenge here so this will be a real test of the...…..Car sharing for those coming from the north- meet at Mitchell's auction mart at ten to six, ready for a six o'clock depart.

If numbers are "large" we are likely to split into two groups in order to make the counting easier.

Up the donkey path, hope to find the small path under the west face of Blake and hence sharp Knott. Navigation exercise to Carling Knott, and then onto Blake fell, down the Penns. Possible extension over to Gavel. Possible extension of the extension - back over Knock Murton.

Followed by mince pies and mulled wine. Possibly Stollen cake, and any other traditional goodies that Aldi are selling.

25th Dec Beck Hole. Goathland.

Happy Christmas everyone.

I will be running to the pub. Distance 6m, climb 0.

1st Jan Somewhere

Really?

New year's resolutions start next week...………

Suspect that those left in the land of waking may organise something on Facebook?

Happy new year.

8th Jan Lanthwaite Green

Car sharing for those coming from the north- meet at Mitchell's auction mart at ten to six, ready for a six o'clock depart.

Hopefully, if the weather Gods are kind, a trot off up Whiteside, Hopegill head and back down the valley. If not, perhaps a trot around the lake, or even some hill reps in the woods

15th Jan Cold Fell Road

Car sharing for those coming from the north- meet at Mitchell's auction mart at ten to six, ready for a six o'clock depart.

A Dent and Flat fell combination.

22nd Jan Kirkstile Inn - Pie night

Car sharing for those coming from the north- meet at Mitchell's auction mart at ten to six, ready for a six o'clock depart.

Run out over Melbreak and Hen Combe.

Because of the expected turnout - it is likely that we will split into two groups so that we can keep track of everyone.

Pie night works like this...... After the run...at around 8 p.m. - we have half the pub reserved for us, despite this space is limited to around 30 people. To keep things simple we try to keep the order to large ( £ 13.50 )or small ( £ 10 ) pie with chips. ( for those with dietry requirements, we can also pre order something or they will even cope with an on the night order ).
To reserve your spot email me with your name and food requirement andyandmel@btinternet.com

The list is filling up...........

If you are eating at the pub...you can park in their car park - though ideally some of us should park inthe usual spots in order to fill their car park and upset them

29th Jan Loweswater

Car sharing for those coming from the north- meet at Mitchell's auction mart at ten to six, ready for a six o'clock depart.

If the numbers are too large to count people, we will consider splitting into two groups.

In a break with tradition, we will try to do this run the right way round this time. This means not charging off up the wrong track during the count up.

We will be visiting Darling Fell, Low Fell and Fellbarrow.
