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.

National 12 Stage Road Relay Finals - 11 April 2015

The Barlick men's 12 stage team travelled to Sutton in Coldfield to take on the UK's best in the National 12 man relay.  Apart from Luke Maude coming in for Julian Hood, it was the same team that managed to qualify from the northern 12 stage.

Chris Singleton ran the fastest long leg of the day with the top runners on the first leg bringing the team back in 43rd place. Jimmy Craig backed this up with the fastest short leg of the day bringing the team up 6 places to 37th. Nick Treitl pulled another place back with another great run on leg 3. Lucas Payne did a great job on leg 4 before Gary Shaw got the team back up to 37th taking back 4 places. Leg 6 and it was the turn of Shaun Chew and he ran a solid leg. Ian Livesey consolidated the position on 7 as did Russell Parrington on leg 8. At this time Rossendale were about 3 and half minutes up and Blackburn 90 secs. Chris Smale ran a cracking leg overtaking Blackburn in the home straight. Stephen Chew took the baton on leg 11 and pulled back 4 places before Luke Maude overtook Rossendale on the last leg with the second quickest short leg of the day.

A very creditable 32nd of 60 teams who compeletd - a fantastic achievement for a club our size. Next stop Calderdale relay to see if the men can improve on last years 3rd place.
