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.

Shepherd's Skyline - 2 November 2013

Only two Barlickers were at this race, which was easily won by the in form Tom Adams of Ilkley.  Tom led the runners up the hill from the pub towards the top of the ridge and never looked like losing the lead.  On the return, he cruised down the hill to take an easy victory, ahead of Chris Farrel of Horwich and Tim Ellis of Calder Valley.

Sam Wadsworth was 17th as they made their way up the hill and after the descent from the monument, he lost quite a few places as they climbed back up to the ridge again.  However, once on the top and on the descent, he started pulling a few places back to finish 19th.

Rachel Lowther looked to be going well on the ascent, but looked to be exhausted as she made the last bit of descent towards the finish line. She was plagued in the race by her shoe laces coming undone, which in itself cost her a few places.

19 Sam Wadsworth 49:01
210 Rachel Lowther 71:24 (35th women out of 64 starters)

279 runners.

The race was very well organised by Todmorden Harriers who lived up to their reputation for getting the results out in double quick time.
