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.

White Pike or Dow

06:30pm on 22 January at Newfield Inn

Led by Sue from the Newfield, who by this stage will be quicker than Josh on a climb. Route will depend on weather but it’s a full moon so worth going up Dow if you can see it. Newfield afterwards.

Scissors Winterleague

10:30am on 02 February at Blacksmith's Arms, Broughton Mills, LA20 6AX

There has to be a road race in the winter league and this is it: just over six nice hilly road miles, starting and finishing at the Blacksmiths. The route goes anticlockwise (unless Ian has other plans) so you head up the hill towards Broughton then turn left to take the top road back to the scissors crossroads. Straight over, down to the Hawk, up to Stephenson’s ground and back to Broughton Mills. Please note this one is on the Sunday.

Oxen Park mud bash

06:30pm on 05 February at Oxen Park Village Hall

Led by Julian round the trails and fields of Crake. Lots of lovely gates. Starting at the Manor in Oxen Park and going there afterwards so let’s hope they’ve forgotten the incident.

Sun 10

Roanhead Winterleague

10:30am on 10 February at Roanhead Car Park

No longer organised by Matt R. Anyone like to set a route for us through dunes, long grass, strange marshy bits and the long run back up the beach to finish? Tell John Millen if you want the rusty hut at the car park to serve cake, or anything useful at all.

Sat 16

Tottlebank Winterleague

10:30am on 16 February at Giant's Grave

Organised by Julian: two laps of Tottlebank and Blawith Knott, starting and finishing at the Giant’s Grave. Always misty.

Sun 24

Black Combe Winterleague

10:30am on 24 February at Whicham Church

A straight race up and down the Combe from the road next to Whicham Church, then off to the Square Cafe for prize-giving. Organised by Will and I’m wondering about going to the South Summit too so that people can check their line for the fell race two weeks later. What do you think? This one's on the Sunday and we all go to the Square Cafe afterwards for prize giving and breakfast.

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.
