Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

  • Wray Scarecrow 10K - 22 April 2017

    This is a very much of an up and a down race with much of the climbing not long after the start..  The hard training regime undertaken by Rachel Villiers is paying off and once more she won the ladies race.  Scott Boardman had a good race to lead the Barlickers home and finish in 11th place and the ever improving Paul Elcock was not far behind those two to finish in 16th place.

  • Mid Lancs Cross Country League Presentation - The Women - 21 April 2017

    Mid Lancs Cross Country League Presentation - The Women - 21 April 2017

    For most of the first year of the club, we had only one lady member, so our women have been a little behind our men in team events.  However, as our female membership has increased, they have grown into a wonderful supportive group and this is now paying off in team events such as this league. Last year, our women gained promotion from the lowly third division and by turning out and working together, this year, they became division two champions.  Not only did they win their league, but they won it in style, by winning every race of the season.  Following on from that, they were also champions in the V35 League.  But it does not stop there.  The women are working as a group and for most races, many numbers turned out.  Cross country is nothing if it is not a team sport and this turning out in numbers and supporting each other has paid off, resulting in the ladies B team gaining promotion from Division Three to replace our A team there.   It has certainly been a season to remember.

  • Mid-Lancs Cross Country League Presentation - The Men - 21 April 2017

    Mid-Lancs Cross Country League Presentation - The Men - 21 April 2017

    It was October 2013, in the first year of the club’s existence, that we joined this league in division four.  In what has been a remarkable journey, we gained promotion every subsequent year to the next division, culminating this year in becoming the league champions.  Not only did we win the league as a team, but the club also took the honours in the individual competition, with Tom Corrigan comfortably beating  James Douglas from Border Harriers to become overall league champion.  On reading this, anyone not knowing this league, might think that we had been up against a host of mediocre clubs.  On the contrary, we were opposed by many top quality clubs in the Lancashire area (and beyond).  The main differerence between us was that our top runners were prepared to turn out for each event and represent their club and that perhaps aptly demonstrates the spirit within the club.

  • Skipton Park Run - 22 April 2019

    This was Andrew Collins' first time at Skipton and he had an exciting tussle with Lee Athersmith, just beating him to the line by one second and coming first in this run.

  • Bunny Run Three - 18 April 2017

    Bunny Run Three - 18 April 2017

    Young Jack Villiers has certainly taken to racing, this being his third race in four days.  The first three home was a repeat of last week, except that they all recorded faster times.  It is good to see a couple of our new female runners out racing - these races are absolutely ideal for getting used to off road running.
