Social Runs

Join us for a run

We have runners of all ages, abilities and interests, from GB team members to the old donkey who is writing this page, and roughly equal numbers of men and women. Most of us don’t get near the prizes but we all love to run on the fells.

New members are always welcome and membership is very cheap, but you don’t have to join the club to come out for a run. Check out our Introduction to Fell Running for more information on what to expect.

Where we run

From spring to autumn our social runs range across the southern fells from Eskdale to Windermere, and each year we pick a different set of local races for our road and fell championships. In the winter our social runs come a little lower down the fell – mostly – and someone will usually organise a longer run at the weekend. Fell shoes do very well in deep snow. We also organise a winter training league of Sunday morning fell, trail and cross-country chases.
