Barlick Fell Runners have a structured training programme which caters for all abilities from absolute beginners to top class athletes. This training programme for beginners will operate over a twelve week period, so all beginners will start together and gradually improve together. Any new beginners will have to wait until the next twelve week cycle begins before they can join the programme. You will not be asked to progress to the next level until your coach feels that you are ready to do so. The next beginners session will commence after the summer holiday period. A guide as to what the beginners programme entails
The information below is a guide to all of our training sessions. Any variations will be published on the calendar and in the notices column on the home page of the web site.

Wednesday 7:00pm - Pub/Social Run
These runs cater for intermediate and experienced runners who fancy a gentle paced run and social beverage afterwards.

Glenn Whittaker, Pete Jackson and a host of other runners put the calendar together which are listed on the link below.
You don’t have to be a member to come to a pub run, in fact, pub runs are an ideal way to get to know us and find out whether Barlick Fell Runners is the club for you.
Thursday 7:00 pm - Seedhill Running Track
This is a Fartlek session. Fartlek is a Swedish word meaning "speed play". Simply defined, it means periods of fast running, intermixed with periods of slower running. The session has some track, but also includes some road and some hills. It is a good session if you are new to racing and fancy pushing yourself with other runners.
