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 29

Wetherlam and around

06:30pm on 29 May at Tilberthwaite

Led by Pete, Crown in Coniston afterwards. Slower group led by Sue might set off at 6.20.

June 2018

Tue 05

Devoke Bumps

06:30pm on 05 June at Devoke Crossroads

Devoke skyline from the crossroads on Birker. Nice recovery run for Duddon legs. Perhaps with Coleridge's pepperpot? Led by Tim, Newfield afterwards. Slower group led by Parmy, whose route this is.

Tue 12

Karl's Estuary Run

06:30pm on 12 June at Millom Square

Across the Duddon estuary from Millom to (probably) Askam and back. Old fell shoes ideal; new white road shoes not. Bear on the Square afterwards, I guess.

Tue 19

Summer Solstice Sca Fell picnic

06:30pm on 19 June at Wha House

Details very much to be confirmed but we meet at Wha House in Eskdale, run up Sca Fell and have a picnic on the way down. Bring food! If the weather is ok, we'll eat it on Slight Side, having persuaded someone young and fast to carry the beer up. It's a longer run than usual, so we might end up with a few groups setting off earlier.

Tue 26

Dow and White Maiden

06:30pm on 26 June at Torver

Led by Sue from Torver but she might send fast group up the Old Man to play catchup. Wilsons afterwards, or whichever Torver pub is least useless at the moment.

July 2018

Tue 03

Dunnerdale from Ulpha Bridge

06:30pm on 03 July at Ulpha Bridge

Led by Will, Newfield afterwards. Stickle Pike, Great Stickle, back through the little tarns. Probably only 5 miles but a good excuse for a swim in the Duddon.

Tue 10

Summer Black Combe Race

06:30pm on 10 July at Whicham Church

The annual summer race up, down and round the Combe with a free dinner for all runners and helpers at the Miners in Silecroft afterwards. Probably some complicated pre-ordering is involved. Wasdale is on the Saturday so this is an ideal little tuner-upper to get you ready.

Tue 17

Hampsfell and Humphrey

06:30pm on 17 July at Cartmel

Nice gentle recovery run led by Harvey, with any luck, from I don't know where. Cartmel? Someone will know. Sophie will lead a slower group.

Tue 24

Whin Rigg and Ill Gill Head

06:30pm on 24 July at Giggle Alley

Or something else from Giggle Alley according to whim of leader, which will be Tim if he's back yet or someone else if he's not. George IV afterwards.

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.
