Updated 30/11/2020

England Athletics have release new training guidance that will apply from Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

That means that we can get back to putting on some of the sessions we started up before the second lockdown! We’re still finalising the sessions that are going to be coming back and getting all the details together. Once we know, the training page will be updated. We’ll hopefully have all that info soon, but until then, the training organisers should be contacted to confirm attendance and location.

Happy running!

Club Championships 2021

Following Mondays committee meeting we were all very minded to come up with a Championships for the club for this year as mass start/open racing resumes in the Summer.  

However…  race calendars are still quite empty for many reasons you can all work out for yourselves, suffice to say although we would very much like to put on a Championships right now, we have no idea what it will look like!

We will have the usual Road, Trail, Fell, XC Champs and Parkrun Cup but how many races over what, when and where is still unclear.


It is anticipated that nothing will start before the end of June anyway in line with ‘the rules’ but hopefully by early June we should have a sense of what a ‘June to December’ (later for XC ) Championships might look like. Details will be posted here and on Facebook when announced.


Thank you for your patience!
The Committee

Navigation Workshop – 17th March

Are you new to fell running and unsure how to use a map and compass?
Do you usually simply ‘follow the guy in front’ at a race, hoping he knows where he’s going?
Have you ever wondered where you are on the hill?
Do you fear the mist and wonder how to find your way?
Do you worry about getting lost on the hill?
Would you like to increase your confidence in navigating your way round a fell race?

If you can answer ‘YES’ to ANY of these questions then this workshop is for YOU!

The club is holding a Navigation Workshop to help you increase your confidence on the hill. You will learn how to read a map, use a compass and gain new navigational skills and strategies to give yourself the edge over your competitors.

They will be sharing their knowledge with you, to give you the edge on your next race!

Wanted – Race Organisers

The club wants to appoint Race Organisers for the Hameldon Hill Fell Race, the Towneley Park 10k Road Race, and the Greenway 5k Road Race. All these races are part of the Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix series.

Each Race Organiser has overall responsibility for a race. This involves obtaining the necessary permissions before the race, and managing a team of helpers responsible on race day for route marking, registration, marshalling, timekeeping and results. Although each race already has an established team of helpers a key part of the Race Organiser’s role is recruiting more helpers. Assistance is available with the organisation of the separate Junior Races that are included with each of these races. Advice and support will also be available from the 2016 Race Organisers Paul Healey (Hameldon Hill) and John Roche (Towneley 10k and Greenway 5k).

Our race organisers usually find the role rewarding and so remain in post for many years. If you think that you could by become Race Organiser in 2017 for one of these three races please get in touch with any committee member.

Junior Subscriptions
At the November committee meeting the Treasurer recommended that the annual subscription for junior members be increased from £4 to £12. The committee supports this recommendation and is proposing that this is achieved by adopting the following change to our membership structure.

As the Under 23 subscription is currently £12 it is proposed to remove the Under 18 (Junior) membership class. Thus all Junior members will become Under 23 members with an annual subscription of £12.

If the proposal is approved for current Junior members the annual subscription due on 1st January 2017 will be £12.

In accordance with the club’s constitution a Special General Meeting (SGM) has been called to seek approval for this proposal from the membership. All members are entitled to attend the meeting and speak on the matter which will conclude with a vote. Only members aged 16 and over are eligible to vote on the proposal. Members who are eligible to vote but cannot attend the meeting may cast their vote via proxy by notifying me at least 72 hours before meeting. Full details of the rules around proxy voting are set out in clause 11(g) of the constitution.

I would also ask that if you are planning to attend the meeting that you let me know in advance so I can be sure there is enough room to accommodate everyone.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information around this proposal or the SGM. A statement from the Treasurer will be provided at the meeting, and is available on request beforehand.
