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.

This year, the race was won by Chris Miller of Harrogate AC in a time of 42:16, setting a new course record.  Julian Hood was second in a time of 43:11 with two more Barlickers finishing in the top ten.

As for the Barlick women, it was a clean sweep for them taking the first three places in the ladies race.  They were led home by Sarah Tipler, who seems to be getting back to her old form following her operation and she was followed home by the ever improving Jen Hird and the "on fire" Angela Donlan.
