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.

  • Seniors

Lee Parrington is one of our runners based in Carnforth and he made the shortish trip to Birkrigg in the South Lakes, for this Kendal Winter League Race. These races are similar to those organised by BOFRA in the summer and are often straightforward out and back races.  This one was straight to the trig  and back.  Former British Champ Tom Addison led the field home in 19.59. Lee had a good solid run finishing 9th in a time of 22.36.

This is a 6K run, a 16K Mountain Bike and then another 6K run.  Three Barlickers took part.

Chris Singleton last year stepped up to the Ultra distances and did so with distinction winning 2 races, the first being his 1st ever ultra outing at Howarth Hobble. As well as competing on the road where he set the club record for the marathon and cross country, picking up his first Lancashire vest, he has added an England vest to his collection. He has been called up to run in the Anglo Celtic Plate, which is a race run over either 50k or 100k. It's a great achievement and well deserved for his hard work and dedication to his sport. It's even more impressive when you realise he has 3 young children, as well as having a very good athlete for a wife in Christina Singleton who runs for Trawden AC.

Good runs today from Daniel Balshaw to finish in 5th position and to lead the Barlickers home and from Hannah Newbold to finish 1st U18 girl. She was also 1st Under 23 woman.  Full Barlick positions are:

Sam Wadsworth was our only representative in this race and he reported on it as follows:

In a bid to find a race this weekend, I ventured to Skelmersdale for the Ashurst Beacon Fell Race.  It's an out and back race which starts at the top of the main hill, drops down into a valley, climbs up the other side before looping back and finishing with a long climb (just where you need it the least). The race starts on  a steep road descent and Southport's Ben Johnson, looking like a  Lancashire version of Tom Adams, set off at a blistering pace making it seem like the result was a foregone conclusion.  Halfway down the hill, the race switches onto tracks and other than some very muddy fields remained on these throughout.  Fearing that I'd failed to leave enough in the tank for the climb at the end, I was worried about loosing positions towards the end as I could hear someone chasing me most of the way round.  Luckily I managed to hold off the runner, who also struggled with the final climb and finished in 6th.   Ben Johnson took first place, through on speaking to him afterwards, his win was not quite as comfortable or assured as it may have initially appeared, having lost the lead part of the way round.

The race was very well organised and marshalled with the results printed off before some people had managed to get served at the bar, (the bar service was a little slow tho).  Really stiff legs caused by the steep road decent  makes it difficult to recommend an ideal shoe but Mudclaws are definitely not the way forward should anyone chose to do this race next year.

This was the 50th Park Run for Clover Edwards - a pretty good achievement for a 9 year old.

Because of the weather, this year the race was run over The Stoop course.

The winner was Tom Adams in 31:14.  Sam Wadsworth, on his first solo run out for quite some time finished just outside the top ten and Andy Berry also had a good run, despite his cracking run in the cross country yesterday, finished just outside the top twenty.

It was good to see some of our new youngsters out in these races.  For many, this was their first taste of racing and they can only get better.  Great performance from Eliot Phillps to finish in 9th place and lead the U11 boys team home.

It was a great performance too from our ladies.  New Barlicker Kelly Whiteside was leading them round with Jen Hird not far behind and Lorraine Slater not far behind those leading two.  However, showing some of that great Slater determination, Lorraine fought her way in front of the other two to lead them home and those three finished as a real team pack in consecutive positions, finishing third team out of all the divisions, but first in Division Three, ensuring promotion next season. 

We had out a bit of a depleted men's team, but those who turned out did the business, finishing first team in Division Two and thus ensuring  promotion  next year to division one.The B team also did well, and are now leading Division Four.  The vets team are currently second in Division Four.
