Last September, Barlick Fell Runners entered a team in the Mid Lancs Cross Country League. This league is divided into four divisions and not unreasonably, all new teams to the league have to start in the lowest division. The original intention was to run four out of the six races. However, as the season unfolded, enthusiasm built and the club fielded a full team in each race. As a result, Barlick finished the season as Division Four Champions with 39 points, ahead of Wigan with 25 points who were runners up. Both clubs are now promoted to Division Three. The presentation evening was the culmination of the season and saw a selection of the squad receive their medals and the winner's shield.
