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.

Jack Ingham went up to the Lakes for this Trail Race and came home in 114th position in a time of 1:30:06.

There were 464 finishers.

Luke Maude had a great run, securing a top ten place in his first attempt at this race.  He was duly rewarded for his efforts by winning the J A MacPherson Trophy for the best newcomer.

Another runner who had a good inaugural run was Lee Edwards, so much so that he was a team counter for the club.  Barlick were 8th team with 108 points as follows:

9 Luke Maude 1:44:40
27 Nick Treitl 1:51:14
72 Lee Edwards 2:03:13 

Please note that this will be from the main car park at Gargrave and NOT from the Devonshire at Skipton.

This is a good race,  with a bit of up and down with the bridges over the A1 and about half the race on gentle trail for good measure.  Julian Hood had a great run, coming second after Mike Burrett of Leeds City with a time of 34:27.

U12 Girls

10 Jenna Boothman 8:12


28 Nicolas Kendall 36:49
38 Craig Child 39:40

Just John Boothman and Glenn Whittaker showed up for this race.  Dave Halliday was down to run it, but he was perhaps suffering from Ben Nevis legs or could it have been Ben Nevis nipples. 

137 John Boothman 94:38
154 Glenn Whittaker 98:15

Matt Lalor made a stop half way round but still managed a win, gearing up for his marathon at the end of October in Ireland.  He managed to dip under the 2 hour mark with a 1.59 clocking.  

Scott Boardman is also in marathon training and he also took part in this race. He finished in a time of 2:45:10, but his position is not yet known.

Full results to follow.

This race was exactly "as it said on the tin" a favourable first mile, a severe uphill second mile (which added 2 mins, then 4 miles of undulations on quiet country lanes. So a challenging course for 3 Barlicks “boys” in a small select field of just 44 which toed the line. The race was made easier by a gentle breeze taking the edge off temperatures on a fine warm and sunny late summer morning.

LEE PARRINGTON led after half a mile and held on for a clear win.  Down the field, PETE WILKINSON had the better of  TERRY LONERGAN for the first half of the race, proving stronger on the hills, with Terry coming through in the second 5K.

1ST  LEE PARRINGTON        36.19

17TH TERRY LONERGAN  M65   49.46

18TH  PETE WILKINSON    M65   51.19

A good weekend for the Parrington brothers, as Russell also won an obstacle race for his team Muddy Kit.

Ian Livesey and Andrew Carson went in search of pbs and both ran well at Salford.  Livers ran 33.04.  Andrew Carson has been Improving all year and ran 37.17 which is indeed a new pb. 

Finlay Wild won the race for the 6th consecutive year.  First back for Barlick was Luke Maude in 9th position. Not bad for his first attempt at this race. 

The Barlick finishing positions were as follows:

9 Luke Maude 1:44:40
27 Nick Treitl 1:51:14
72 Lee Edwards 2:03:13
141 Andrew Driver 2:13:38

The Kilnsey Crag Race is a typical Dales "slow up, descend like a maniac" race.  Rob Hope was perhaps hoping to win this race yet again, but his hopes were dashed as he was pushed into second place by Simon Bailey of Mercia.  Jimmy Craig came home in 4th place and Barlick had three runners in the top ten.

4 Jimmy Craig 8:33
7 Luke Maude 9:02
8 Nick Treitl 9:28

Julian Hood won the one mile handicap race and Nick Treitl finished 5th.

Only two Barlickers made the trek up to Reeth for this race.  A second place was Jimmy Craig's reward for his trip, finishing behind Tom Addison of Helm Hill.  In third place was Jack Smith of Wharfedale.

Angela Donlan finished 4th lady and 1st LV40.
