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.

Old Man

06:30pm on 01 April at Torver

Led by Matt Allen from Torver. Wilson’s Arms afterwards. Clocks have gone forward so sunset is 7.33! Head torch might be needed for the final descent.

Tue 09

Grey Friar Haha

06:30pm on 09 April at Walna Scar Car Park

Led by Will. I have no idea why Beth has written ‘haha’ next to this. From the Newfield up Grey Friar and around. I might start at the bottom of the Walna Scar so that we can get to Swirl How, but it’s the Newfield afterwards so we can car-share up from there. Sunset 7:47.

Tue 16

Gummers How

06:30pm on 16 April at Gummers How Car Park

It says here that Harvey is going to lead this one, but if he can’t be found then Hollie will take over. I’m guessing it sets off from the car park up the hill. Anglers Arms in Haverthwaite afterwards.

Tue 23

Duddon Discovery

06:30pm on 23 April at Duddon Furnace, There is a little carpark there if you open he wooden gate

No idea what surprises Beth has in mind for you here, or indeed where they begin. Let’s say Duddon Furnace for now, since the bluebells will be out. Old Kings Head afterwards.

Tue 30

Wetherlam by Red Dell

06:30pm on 30 April at Behind the Sun Inn

Feet annoyingly dry? Solve that problem with a lovely evening run up Red Dell. Led by Sue from behind the Sun then going down to the Crown afterwards.

Tue 14

Caw and White Pike

06:30pm on 14 May at Kiln Bank Cross

From Kiln Bank Cross, which is a nice change but still a fairly ambitious out and back. Some may turn back at Caw. Tim is leading, though. Blacksmiths 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.
