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.

Towneley Park 10K - 28 July 2013

The first ever Towneley Park 10k saw 6 Barlickers take to the start line.  The course is quite a hilly and there were some fast runners in attendance, ensuring that the pace would be unforgiving.  A group of 5-6 runners broke away at the start with Marc Hartley, Gary Shaw, Jimmy Craig, Will Smith and Stephen Chew setting the pace.  By Mount Lane, where the classic Cliviger '6' used to start, the front group had dropped to 4.  Then Will Smith dropped away half way up the climb. Steve Chew made a break for it, forcing the pace at the brow of the hill and he and Gary Shaw pulled a little lead out of Marc Hartley, a move which proved to be decisive.  For the next 2 miles the lead changed about 5 times between Shaw and Chew.  As they entered the park Shaw put in a decisive burst and finished 13 secs in front of Chew.  All the Barlickers in the race ran well, with the ever improving Andy Berry and Andy Carson both inside the top 20.  Good performances too from Andy 'Screw' Driver, Des Walkden and Chris Smedley.
