  • Done....pre-entering, thank you. Already 38 entered as at 8pm today (31st August), so looks like it'll reach it limit by the time Hodgson relays come round, if not sooner....and also thanks for the ease of entering the race online to.
  • The results of this year's long and short Duddon races on fellrace.org website show every single runners' finishing times being exactly one hour slower than they should be. We know the weather was clagtastic, and everyone was slower than usual, but…
  • Still think Birkrigg should be moved to the 28th Jan and Whin Rigg left at 11th Feb. This would give members a choice of having the 4th off, or more likely they'll want to give Kendal winter league races Birkrigg fixture a go, especially as it's ri…
  • I can assist with parking as in previous years, as I'll be arriving early with Peter Grayson.

  • The Langdale Horseshoe fell race results are up and for the updating of the website champs table are as follows: Winning time was 2:13.14 for Carl Bell and 2:44.09 for the ladies (Kelli Roberts). BCR only had three participants: James Harris …
  • Yet another rejection letter and commiserations magazine from the VMLM, plus a running top for bequeathed entry fee. I've ran London before with accepted entry from the ballot and the BCR club place three times since 2004. With that in mind, and …
  • Well mentioned.... I did the road stoppie in July 2004, clocking 12 hrs 41m, not exactly speedy Gonzales, and that was in my running peak. If I attempted it again now or next year, something over 15 hours would be more likely.
  • Latest BCR club champs counter race took place on Wednesday evening at Ulverston 5km. For the purpose of updating the website champs table. Winning times were 15:12 for the men and 18:39 for the ladies, but a special mention must go to 12 year o…
  • Tonight's estuary crossing run will be going to Kirkby, rather than Askam, due to the recent wet weather since the weekend. The channels will be deeper and faster flowing in that area. Even the Kirkby route expect the channels to be shorts / thigh d…
  • THIS POSTING RELATES TO THE SOCIAL RUN FOR THIS TUESDAY, 5th September: from Millom town Square. Please read the second posting above as the route will be to Askam, unless there's alot of rain on Monday, when I will have to change it to Kirkby. …
  • The annual Ulverston Hoad Summer 10km road race took place on Wednesday, 9th August and was the latest in the BCR club champs. The winner was Ross "the boss" Campbell of Striders in 33:33. Winning lady well outside Lizzie's course record. Vicky …
  • Get yourselves to Clubbercise classes at Dalton leisure centre. There you'll not only get a good aerobic dance workout, and you'll get ideas for the music tracks you might want to choose for our Xmas do disco and have glowsticks to play with also. …
  • Me and Rob McKeever are also starting at six.
  • Social run 27th: The social runs page on the website isn't working, and whilst I'll be at an exercise class in Whitehaven at the time, it might be worth posting on here where the run is this Tuesday. I still assume our summer race, what I call t…
  • Either option for me please. I won't be able to make the social run, but will be in the pub shortly after 8pm doing one of my own runs prior to running home after eating.
  • Thanks for updating the social runs page, but where's the run on the 27th?
  • That was last year's date. You mean the 28th.
  • The Brathay Windermere marathon took place today, and as any UK marathon counts towards the champs, I presume if you do more than one marathon in 2017, your best result counts. Winning times were 2:47.48 and 3:15.41 for Mark Goudge and Sally For…

  • Has all the social runs up to early / mid-July now been sorted out following the committee meeting earlier this month? The main page on our website only shows the next three. I'm only asking as there's a date in June when I may be away.
  • Results of the Eskdale Elevation fell race are now online and are as follows: John Millen 2:32.41 Phil Clayton 2:54.31 William Ross 3:01.30 Nick Webley 3:06.35 Lynn Murray 3:18.52 Susan Ross 3:35.56 The winners were John Helme (Ambleside …

  • What are the next eight weeks of social runs to take us into early July and when's the Black Combe summer round race please?
  • The meeting is now on the 9th at the Black Cock in Broughton, so that's: even better for you. Did you get an email with the agenda? Anything else for the agenda and food orders need to be emailed to Rob by this coming Saturday. The social run was…
  • I've added these times to our Facebook page.
  • I won't be here this year, but last chance to get your online entry in before it closes at midnight tonight (Thursday), otherwise it'll cost you £2 extra on the day. There are 73 online entries so far, including several BCRs. Hope everything goe…
  • Was this my 21st Jan Park Run at Millom result on the table? If so, what would I have scored if NYEs counted? I was 2m 58s quicker that day at my first ever Park Run, on the last day of 2016.
  • Pie for me please, I'll choose on the night which one if that's ok? Is there a road run going from the Punch Bowl around the usual route we do as well?
  • This race will clash with our own organised Black Combe fell race.
  • That's a good start to the New Year, can't see anything on the attachment, all I'm getting is a message saying can't open file on my laptop.
  • My first ever Park Run took place today and it's been years since I last finished a run, if not an official race such as in this case, in the top half or even top third, coming 14th out of 43 in 30:59. They've set this as my pb, but have done a 5k r…
