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.

  • Seniors

  • £10/year
  • For runners of all abilities over the age of 18

Andy Berry has decided to step down from his role as team captain.  If you fancy taking in this job, please get in touch with Joanne Sadowski and let he know as the committee would like to fill this vacancy as quickly as possible.

It seems that the New Year has meant a new start for Shaun Chew, as he was back out again in this first race of the year.  He is boviously a bit rusty after his time out, but no doubt, he will soon be back on it again.

A first for Barlick in these races as Susan Hird came home as first FV60 in ladies race.  She came home just behind team mate Diane Macdonald.  Sadly they were our only two runners in the ladies race, so we could not compete on a team basis.
