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.

Chester Marathon - 4 October 2016

Ian Livesey Ian Livesey

There were some cracking performances at the weekend with six Barlickers making the trip to Chester for the Marathon.  Ian Livesey is really putting the mileage in at the minute and came home in 8th place with a new pb of 2.34.59.  Julian Hood has been running really well this year and came home 12th, again in a new pb of 2.37.13.  Completing the trio in the top 20 was club record holder Chris Singleton, who had another solid performance, but by his own high standards, was left a tad disappointed on the day.  Newest club member Ian Cock was next home in 3.10 with his good mate James Tingle not far behind in 3.16.
Scott Boardman was also running for his chosen charity and finished in a time of 4.06.  All in all a successful day for the Marathon boys who are starting to push each other on.  We now have 4 runners who have been under 2.40.  Matt Lalor and Russell Parrington will be looking to hit that landmark in Dublin at the end of the month.  We are still awaiting confirmation but Barlick may have won the team prize which is yet another first for the club in a Marathon.
