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 17

Kirkby Moor Race Recce

06:30pm on 17 September at Beckside Village Hall

The location is down as the village hall, but in actual fact you might be better off down by the cricket club. Led by Josh, this will be proper race recce involving running up the road! The sun will set at 19.25 and so it will be proper dark by 8. If you were planning on being slow, I'd take a torch. There are no pubs near Kirkby and so we might have to go to the Stan Laurel in Ulverston.

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.
