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.

Mid-Lancs Cross Country League, Townley Park - 26 October 2013

Mid-Lancs Cross Country League, Townley Park - 26 October 2013 Stephen Chew

Nine Barlickers turned out for our first race in this league.   As a new club in the league, we have to start in division four, but teams from all four divisions run together.  As a result, it was difficult to know how the team was doing. 

The race was fast and furious and there was no respite.  The first six finishers from each team are counters, but runners further down the field can still play their part, if they can push opposition team runners further down the field.

The provisional results indicate that Barlick were 13th team overall, which at first glance seems to suggest that we beat some division one teams.  However to confirm this, a bit more detailed analysis is required.  However, it does appear that we are at least in the first two teams of division four.  The finishing positions were as follows:

48 Nick Treitl 37:18
49 Shaun Chew 37:18
77 Dan Taylor 39:08
94 Andy Berry 39:59
129 Rob Weir 41:29
130 Stuart Bryan 41:29
158 Des Walkden 42:52
243 James Fent 48:30
245 Alan Davis 48:39
