  1. Hi there are you doing the Saturday family runs at the moment? If not when is the next one please

  2. Hello, my 14 year old step son is an amazing runner who really enjoys it. I think this could be great for him. Are there any kids around the same age who run regularly with you? Thanks 🙂

  3. Dear Club Coaching Staff and running enthusiasts.

    Please could this be passed on to the Junior Coaching staff and interested runners.

    English Schools (Y7-13) Fell Running Championships – Sunday 24th September 2023.

    Venue – Giggleswick School

    This is a national championship event for schools organised by the Fell Runners Association, which is part of UKA, with Giggleswick School as hosts.

    It is open to any school pupils from Y7-Y13, individuals and teams are welcome. We would encourage Clubs to inform their runners and their parents who can then relay information on to their school’s sports staff, although parents can enter their children.

    Despite its title it is not an elite event although there will be some very talented athletes competing. It is an opportunity for keen runners to try their hand at a different experience of running on a challenging, but picturesque course that will be well marked and marshalled.

    Pre-race registration is required, it is open now and will close a week before the event. All information including a video of the course can be found on the following website:


    In brief:

    11.00 – Y7: 2.83km, 130m ascent
    11.30 – Y8-9: 3.69km, 206m ascent
    12.15 – Y10-11: 5.59km, 247m ascent
    13.15 – Y12-13: 6km, 251m ascent

    Many thanks.

    Kind regards,

    Fergus Ogilvie
    Giggleswick School
