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.

  • Hendon Brook - 8 July 2018

    The race was won by David Rigby in 1:21:36 and was a great performance in hot conditions.  However, there were some terrific performances too from the Barlickers, who were led home by Tom Corrigan, with three finishers in the top ten and six finishers in the top twenty.

    The Barlick ladies excelled too with Rachel Villiers leading them home in 3rd position, with Jacqueline Collins 5th and Paula Cullen 12th.

  • Trawden Seven - 1 July 2018

    Lots of Barlickers out in this race and were led home by Jonathan Cleaver for the men and Rachel Villiers for the women.  A good effort by all the ladies saw them come home with the team prize.  Knowing the man, it was perhaps not surprising that John Boothman turned out for this race, despite his incredible 108 mile run last weekend.  Given that he has given his legs little time for recovery, he did remarkably well.

  • Skiddaw - 1 July 2018

    Richard Treitl was out in this 9.6m / 2700ft race and came home in 2hrs 17mins 49secs, finishing 94th out of 99 finishers.  It was very hot with the temperature around 30o, so it was good to get all runners back safely.

    307 Sara Hardacre 36:41

  • Cragg Vale - 27 June 2018

    A few Barlickers went over for this race instead of the usual pub run.  It was a very pleasant setting and after the race, the prize giving took place in the local church where everyone could enjoyed a cheap pint of good draught ale.  Andy Collins led everyone home with Carl Pawson in close persuit.  Young Jack Villiers had a great race to secure a top twenty finish and last, but by no means least, Jacqueline Collins finished second woman and first F35.

  • Montane Spine Flare Race - 23/24 June 2018

    Montane Spine Flare Race - 23/24 June 2018

    Imagine training for and running in a marathon.  Quite an achievement and great respect to everyone who has done it.  But imagine running in four back to back marathons without a break.  Then imagine a few of the well know fell races, such as Withens, the Lothersdale Fell Race or Pen Y Ghent.   Then imagine adding in a few more hills that are part of the Pennine Way between Derbyshire and Hardraw and mix them all up and you have the challenge which John Boothman took on this weekend.  One hundred and four miles of serious fell running with no sleep and just stops for sustenance. 

    John not only completed this, but he came second in the race.  The winner, Michael Harrison,  put in a tremendous performance.  In the early stages, he looked as thought he might have gone off too fast, such was his lead, but he managed to keep up that blistering pace to the end.  Behind him, by the time they reached the Cowling / Lothersdale area, John Boothman and Matthew Wilkinson were having a fair old tussle and it was nip and tuck between them both.  But John had great determination and he pushed on relentlessly, so by the time they reached the summit of Pinhaw, there was a full nine minutes separating them.

    Both ran on through the night up to Malham and then across Fountains Fell towards Pen y Ghent.  After over twelve hours of running John made the ascent up the end of Pen Y Ghent as Matthew seemed to fall even further behind.  From then on John seemed to dig deep and push on relentlessly until he reached the summit of Ten End from where he could see the town of Hawes and the finish just beyond at Hardraw.  At that point, only a disaster, like crocking an ankle separated John from what felt like a famous victory, even though it was second place.  Luckily, he descended at a fair pace, but managed to keep on his feet to go through the centre of Hawes and jog alongside the river  up to the finish.

    That was over thirty hours on his feet, apart from meal breaks and it says a lot about John's strong mental character, in addition to his incredible physical fitness.  The times for the first three were:

    1 Michael Harrison 27:45:02
    2 John Boothman 30:33:34
    3 Matthew Wilkinson 32:24:29
