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.

    Jack Cummings of Ilkley Harriers returned to defend his title, but he found himself up against the master of all the Wharfedale Fell races, Ted Mason.   Going up the initial steep ascent, Ted took the lead and already it was not looking good for Jack, as Ted is a renown master of descent.  However, it was early days and maybe Jack could build up some lead as the going got easier.  However, by the summit, Ted was still leading with Jack chasing and they were both ahead of Neil Crampton of Pudsey & Bramley.  However, by the lead mines, things had once more changed, as Sam Watson, again a force to be reckoned with in any fell race, had moved up into third place.  By the time the runners came into view, Ted had built up a good lead and as he went down the steep descent towards the beck, he once more once more demonstrated why he is such a master of descent.  Jack followed a little while later, but by this time, Sam Watson was coming into his own and of the two, he was certainly the better man on that notorious final descent.  However, would he be able to catch Jack and claim second place?  In the end, it was a close run thing with Jack crossing the line just six seconds in front of Sam Watson.

    The ladies race was a bit more spread out with Helen Wood of Ilkley Harriers taking a comfortable victory ahead of Jenny Gillies of Spey Runners.  However, a very strong performance from Vet 50 Jean Powell saw her see off the competition and come home in third place.

    Another good performance in the Vet 50 category was from Wharfedale Harriers runner Andy Holden.  He literally started the race right at the back, but he gradually worked his way through the pack, picking off runners one by one and he ended up, not only with the first V50 prize, but with a top ten finish.  It was quite a remarkable performance and it harked back to performances Andy would regularly put in, in his younger days.

    Wharfedale carried off the men's prize with Ted Mason, Sam Watson & Tom Millard, whilst Calder Valley took the ladies' team prize with Helen Buchan, Catherine Holder & Charlotte Wetton.

    As usual, the weather was absolutely dreadful during the race and the trailing runners had to endure hailstones on the top and apparently quite large ones too.  However, once the race was over, it was possible to enjoy a leisurely pint outside the Buck Inn and soak up the Dales sunshine. 

    The Barlickers finished as follows:

    7 Andy Berry 42:07 (1st V40)
    22 John Boothman 47:46
    25 Peter Jackson 48:48 (1st MV60)

    Full Results

    It was a record turnout of both juniors and seniors for this race and given the recent dry weather, it was perhaps the day to test the course record set by Tom Cornthwaite.  Gary Priestley of Salford was up for that challenge.  He was leading comfortably as he came through the gate into the lane leading to the finish.  Cheered on by the spectators, who knew that a new record was on the cards, he charged down the lane, shaving 4 seconds off Tom's record.  

    This year the U15s ran to the trig point on Weets in an out and back race.  This made it a challenging run for them without the severity of the full senior race.  The race winner was Jack Villiers of Barlick.

    In the ladies race, Lorraine Slater was the race winner, with Helen Buchan the runner up.  Then followed two more Barlickers, Jacqueline Collins & Rachel Villiers.

    When Danny Collinge is on form, he takes some beating and so it proved today, when he came home in first place.  There was a battle going on behind him for second place between two Barlick team mates, with David Mirfield just shading it over Nick Treitl.  Those two performances, together with a great run from Jon Cleaver ensured that Barlick took the team prize.  

    In the ladies race, Jacqueline Collins has a great run to take the honours and she was chased home by Rhiannon Wickham of Clayton and a terrific performance by 16 year old Briony Holt saw her take third place. The fourth lady home was Claire Vincent of Clayton and with three runners out of the top four finishers, the Clayton ladies took the team prize.

    There was a good turn out from Barlick and they finishes as follows:
