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

Presentation Dinner - 23 November 2013

A report of the night be Stephen Chew

For the first annual Barlick fell runners presentation, the club decided to do a sit down meal at the Stone Trough in Kelbrook.  58 people came to the presentation and were treated to a meal and music by Tom Richardson.

The club has come a fair way since it started last December and now has 95 members.  We, as a committee, never envisaged such a number after 12 months.  The committee have worked very hard to get it all up and running.  Training sessions, memberships, England athletics and of course the bread butter of racing.  There has been a real improvement in people's times this year right across the board and that needs to complimented.  Also when we have put races on everyone has contributed and really pulled together, especially at Buckden Pike, which was an English Championship race.  There are obviously a lot of unsung heroes that contribute to the club and runners indirectly, for example the runner's partners, as ell as Graham and Pat Wadsworth.  Graham does a fantastic job of putting the club out into the big wide world via the club website.

Harvey Grace was given honorary membership.  Graham and Pat's contribution to the club was also rewarded on the night for their tireless effort organising races.  A great night was had by all and we look forward to the next year with more expectation rather than hope.
