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.

Sutton Pinnacles - 16 June 2013

Barlick Records First Win


Sutton pinnacles was the scene for the 6th club championship race with 8 Barlickers making the short trip over the border into the village of Sutton.  After a mad dash to the start, with a couple of minutes to spare, we were set off from the arches just past the Kings Arms.  A fairly steady start saw everyone tuck in behind Steve Brock of Wharfedale and Ged Cullen of Bingley.  Thistlethwaite, the biggest name in the race, was sat in as well just off the leaders.  As soon as we were off the road, the front four broke away and the lead exchanged hands on numerous occasions.  Cullen was first man to both salt and pepper pots with senior Chew and Brock in close contention.  After the second tower Steve Chew and Ged Cullen made a break, but Shaun Chew picked a great line after the Hitching Stone and made up ground whilst the others were heather hopping.  Shaun then took full command to open up a good lead of 30 seconds to take the race win, with Cullen 2nd and Steve Chew 3rd.  All three went under the previous record.  Dave Halliday came flying through to finish 20th overall and 3rd Barlicker on the day. Good runs from Craig Child, Michael Thistlethwaite, Richard Starkie,  Mark Browne and Rachel 'nice shorts' Lowther completed the Barlick massive on a nice day for a race.  Thanks must go to Camille Askins of KCAC for organising the event on a weekend when there are numerous races, making it a nightmare for would be organisers.  A free bottle of beer at the end was a welcome sight on a very busy weekend for Barlick Fellrunners.
