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, Witton Park - 8 February 2014

There was a good turn out of Barlickers for this race in what could be the key race to secure promotion.

In the ladies race, Sarah Tipler had a cracking run to finish in 5th place.  In view of the conditions, probably the best choice of foot wear was spikes and had Sarah been wearing spikes, it is not inconceivable that she could have finished 4th or even 3rd.

In the men's race, there were plenty of Barlick vests on display.  Nick Treitl set off at a fast pace and was in the top ten, with Jimmy Craig not far behind him.  Closely following those two was V40 Lucas Payne, who can always be counted upon to put in a doughty performance.  As always with the cross country group, there was a strong team spirit and everyone put in a great performance resulting in the team finishing in 5th place out of all four divisions.  This was without counting Jimmiy Craig who for some reason was missing off the provisional results.  The places for the Barlickers were:

10 Nick Treitl 35:24
21 Jimmy Craig 35:55 ?
37 Lucas Payne 37:56
51 Dan Taylor 39:29
55 Andy Berry 39:44
65 Shaun Chew 40:20
83 Stuart Bryan 41:36
97 Andy Carson 42:54
110 Derek Walkden 43:52
136 James Fent 46:11

It would appear that the team will have secured the maximum 10 points for this race and with it, promotion to the third division for next season.
