Garry Dowthwaite is happy to organise our teams again this year ,unless anyone else wants to take on the task.So please contact him if you are interested in being in one of our teams for:

the Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay in Patterdale on 1st October - we are usually restricted to one (therefore mixed) team

and the British Hill and Fell Championships relay in Llanberis,North Wales on 15th October  - we usually have enough interest to field both men's and women's teams

Running Club Raises £1,000 For Fix The Fells

Friday, February 10th, 2017 5:50pm


(L-R) Ray Goodfellow club member, Dave Shinn club secretary, Debbie Copley club coach, John Hodgson club coach, Greg Tagney club member and Paul Sewell club treasurer – presenting the donation to Joanne Backshall, Fix the Fells Programme Manager.

"A group of runners who use the Lake District fells have raised £1,000 for the Fix The Fells project.
The Dallam Running Club has donated the money to the scheme which repairs and maintains upland paths.
Over the last 10 years the Fix the Fells project has brought significant improvements to more than 200 footpaths.
Joanne Backshall, Fix the Fells Programme Manager, said: “We are delighted to receive this substantial donation from Dallam Running Club and we are very grateful to them for their support. It is great that they can utilise the beautiful Lakeland fells on their doorstop for their hobby, whilst recognising the impact they may have on that landscape.“
Paul Sewell, Treasurer of Dallam Running Club, said: “We enjoy running in the Lake District and are keen to give something back to help maintain the paths and fells we use. Our members contribute through an evening run across Morecambe Bay as well as through their entry fees to two other racing events which the Club organises.”
The two races concerned are The 20 Barriers Race in early July based at Carnforth High School, and The Arnside Knott Race at Holgates Caravan Site with the support of The National Trust in mid November."

Run and swim at Fell End caravan park on Wednesday 15th February

From John H .There is both a road and off road option available hoping to get away at 7pm. The pool facilities will be available as before and then the bar with chip butties afterwards.A charge of £5 for the use of pool and food is required. If you have not been there before then the best approach is from the A6 at the Wild Life Oasis turn off near Hale. Then it is the second right turn off after that.
