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.

It was the perfect evening for Thursday night's race over the moors in Gargrave and it was great to see 32 Barlick vests on show! 

James Hall of Wharfedale Harriers took 1st place (31:45) with team mate Ted Mason taking 2nd (33:16) and our own Julian Hood finishing 3rd (34:15). New member Rachel Villiers continues to improve race on race and lead the ladies home in 1st place (44:22). It was also great to see so many of James Stead's group out racing again and all going from strength to strength.

This years race was won by David Rigby of Salford Harriers in 1:18:18. David and Chris Holdsworth (2nd) led from the start and as the race commenced continued to pull ahead from the race of the pack. Our own Julian Hood steadily moved from the pack and eventually finished in a very creditable 3rd place. The women continued their strong form with Lorraine  leading the ladies home in 2nd with Angela in 3rd and Jen in 4th.

As the name suggests, this is a tough one mile race in which everyone, young and old, run together.  At the front of the field, there was a close battle between James Hall and Tom Adams, with the young James, just shading it.  First home for Barlick was Andy Berry in 7th place and an amazing run by Jacob Reeday saw him finish in 28th place overall, (out of a field of 164) and beat John Boothman in the process.  He was 2nd U9 boy with George Fitzpatrick finishing 5th U9 boy.  It does not seem at that long ago that we started our junior section and already some have graduated from being merely runners to racers.  The group as a whole are doing well and with regular training, many more will soon join this elite group.

These championships took place in Arco in Italy and Josh Boyle was representing Great Britain in the Junior Men Race.  He finished just over half way down the field, which is a considerable achievement, considering that he was one of the youngest runners there and he was racing against lads three years older than himself.

This will have been invaluable experience for this young man to take forward to future international events.

Just for the record, Great Britain came 4th behind Turkey, Italy and France.
