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.

Harter Fell

06:30pm on 22 August at Birks Bridge

From Birks as usual, with a nice midgy swim at the end. Led by Ian, Newfield afterwards.

Tue 29

Black Combe

06:30pm on 29 August at Ralliss

The surprise is that it's not Wetherlam after all. Led by Beth from Ralliss, Miners in Silecroft afterwards. A good chance to work out where you went on the Bootle race.

September 2017

Tue 05

Askam from Millom

06:30pm on 05 September at Millom Square

If you've not done this before you're in for a treat. Meet in Millom Square and Karl will show you the estuary crossing. Usually we end up at Askam Pier but it might be Kirkby. Sometimes but not always Karl will catch fish in his socks. Sunset is at 7.50 so take a torch. Bear in the Square in Millom afterwards and a committee meeting.

Tue 12


06:30pm on 12 September at Broughton Mills Reading Room Car Park

Last light run of the year and as usual we'll go round Dunnerdale then to the Blacksmiths. Led by James. Sunset at 7.35 so you'll want a torch. Pre-order meal when you arrive.

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.
