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.

Three Barlickers made their way to Gargrave to take part in John Thompson's Eshton Moor Race. Jack Smith of Wharfedale carried on his good form winning by 2 and half minutes. First Barlicker back was raging bull, Lee Edwards in 6th place. Richard Lowther is another solid performer at present and also came home inside the top 10 in 9th spot. Perennial racing machine John "Duracell satnav" Boothman ran his 3rd race in 3 days finishing a creditable 16th, after his jaunts up Stoodley and Widdop.

1 Jack Smith 33.22

15 John Boothman 43.24
27 Hannah Watson 46:59 4th lady

This eagerly anticipated pub run took place last night. A great night for it, with cracking views from Simons Seat. With Glenn Whittaker injured, Satnav and massive AWOL, it was up to the hardcore pub runners to take care of themselves. Which meant a straight forward decent paced run, much to the dismay of riverdance Ingham. After his track session the night before it was hard to tell if it was his mental or physical performance that was suffering. Andy Collins set off at famous Craig pace but like his idol didn't know where he was going and was soon reeled in. As the gents approached the hill Riverdance and Livers showed their class on the rough terrain and were soon cut adrift by the famous Craig like spurts of pace forced by Collins and then CaptainTreitl.  Jock was also annoying everyone by getting to the front of the train and then walking. He was quickly dispatched to the back with a few choice insults, known to the standard pub runner as banter. Once at the top, the lads had their customery argument about whether they could see Blackpool tower because it was a clear night. The funny thing was the unnamed person swore he could see it even though he was indeed looking the complete wrong way. Livesey and Ingham finally made it to the top and once Livers had stopped shaking because of his fear of heights, the lads were off back down to Ted Mason's village.  Firstly though we had to guide Scott "Mr Wharfedale" Baistow over the flat paths, as the last time he came on this run, he managed to fall on the untrickiest of terrains, resulting in a few grazes and a smashed ego. We finally made it back to the river Wharfe for a cool off, but didn't bother with the tree swing as Jock would have clearly snapped it and spoilt it for future use.  So back in the Craven Arms for a few Raspberry Blondes, abuse and the usual moaning about how rubbish everything is. Ted Mason came in and kept us entertained for 20 seconds with his tale of his race at the weekend. We all yawned and went back to quaffing ale and generally abusing each other until 11. Then we disappeared off into the night and dreamt of the feast to be had at Castle Boothman next Wednesday.

The race was won by Darren Kay CVFR In 49.37

John BoothmanI came home in 41st place 1.05.48 , closely followed by Jen Hird who was 44th and third lady in 1.06.27.  Angela Donlan was 45th & 4th lady in 1.07.10, both of them getting a bottle of wine for their efforts. Pity we were one lady short for getting the team prize.

114 finished and one dnf.

Jenna Boothman finished 16th in the U12 race in a time of 12.54.

The latest round of the club championships took the Barlickers to the summit of Stoodley Pike.  The in form Jimmy Craig took 2nd spot with Nick Treitl not far behind in 3rd.  Luke Maude is another man in form and was 4th on the night with Chris Smale 6th and first M40 and M50.  Andy Berry is getting closer to the front every week.  He had another great race coming back 8th meaning 5 Barlickers in the top 10 and another team prize.  Meanwhile in the ladies race, Lorraine Slater came home 4th and 1st vet40 and Angela Donlan 10th and 3rd V40. All in all,11 Barlickers made the short trip and put in some great performances as follows:

2 Jimmy Craig 20:02
3 Nick Treitl 20:20
4 Luke Maude 20:30
6 Chris Smale 20:54 1st M40/M50

59 Pete Jackson 26:47
71 Angela Donlan 27:57 3rd W40

Terry Lonergan made his debut for Barlick at the weekend in this race, which was reasonably low key for his comeback from injury. He finished 30th in 38.47, in a field of 51, with the race winner being Liam Crane of Blackpool in a time of 27.24.

Ian Livesey and Nick Treitl ran this race at the Sports City Stadium in Manchester. Ian was 1st home in 8th place with a time of 34.11. Nick came home in 11th in 35.06. Great to see Livers making his way back after a couple of months out of action.  James MacDonald finished 145th in 42:11.

2259 finishers.

Marc Hartley showed the field a clean pair of heels and won this race comfortably from Tom Corrigan in 2nd which makes the overall Burnley and Pendle GP very interesting for the remaining 3 races.  Marc had pulled a good lead out by the summit of Mount lane and stretched it out further on the return to the park.  Tom was comfortably 2nd with Andy Berry showing his continued good form nearly making it a Barlick 1,2,3.  Young Jacob Watson of Clayton had other ideas though and pulled Andy in on the last mile.  Andy Carson also had a cracking run finishing 6th overall.  Peter Wilkinson won the vet65 category in his second appearance in the Barlick vest.  Jen Hird finished 4th lady continuing her good form.

24 Richard Lowther 48:40
51 Angela Donlan 53:44

A good turnout of Barlickers for this race, with five out of the top ten places going to the club.   At the front, it was nip and tuck between Jack Wood and Jimmy Craig with Jack just shading it.  Jimmy was perhaps feeling the aftermath of a hard track session or as he put it as he approached the summit for the second time, "Harvey killed me last night".  You might not see Mark Sandamas out on the fells for a while, but when he does return, you would never believe he has been away and in this race he managed a top ten finish as well as being first V40/V45.

In the ladies race, it was another outright victory for Lorraine Slater who was also first V40/V45 with Angela Donlan finishing 4th lady overall.  All the Barlick finishing positions and times were as follows:

2 Jimmy Craig 36:38
4 Julian Hood 37:15

Since its formation two and a half years ago, the club has harboured an ambition to have a junior section, where we could encourage youngsters to get out and start running.

On Monday this week, we took our first step in fulfilling this ambition and set up a junior training program which was held in Victory Park. The session was taken by Nick Treitl, Stephen Chew and Sarah Tipler. Being the first session, it was not widely publicised yet it attracted an incredible 29 youngsters.

This will now be a regular weekly event.

We have set up a new Junior Section on the web site and whereas at the moment it only contains details of the Monday training session, it will be developed as our juniors start spreading their wings and start racing.

Full Results

Chris Holdsworth of Clayton had a storming run, finishing in 41:26 and beating the boys from Barlick, with Marc Hartley just out sprinting Tom Corrigan to take second place. 4th was Julian Hood meaning another team prize for the men.  The ladies also won the team prize with Lorraine Slater finishing 2nd lady and being backed up with strong performances from Jen Hird and Angela Donlan, all in the top 8 ladies.   Jean Rawlinson continued her domination of the FV60 category with another 1st place.

A very well organised race yet again from Trawden with 190 runners.  The junior races were also well attended.

If you feel it has been hot here, try a Park Run in Florida, where this weekend, there was a Barlick vest on display. The run started at 7:30 am before it got too hot and at the end there was a welcoming bottle of water and a piece of melon.  The atmosphere was great and the local people were very welcoming.
