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.

Gary Bradley entered this race last year whilst he was on holiday, where he was joined by Richard Treitl who had made the trip down for the day.  This year, this pair once more returned to Wales and were joined by Barlick new member Virgil Barton, who was making his inaugural run for the club.   Virgil, running with the 118 number, got off to a good start by leading the Barlickers home.

A brilliant run by Jimmy saw him overtake Tom Addison on the final steep descent section of Winder and hold on to the lead on the run in to the finish.

All too often, relay races start with much optimism and particularly  with two man legs, end up with disappointment.  This year was the first year that we had a complete ladies team in the race and we were hoping for great things.  Sadly this came to an end all too quickly.  Kelly Whiteside and Angela Donlan set off on the first leg and they were still in the park when Kelly keeled over and was laid on the ground, obviously in great pain. She had to be carried back to her car by Stephen Chew and Gary Shaw.   It turned out that she had ruptured her achilles tendon and her leg will be in a cast for for a little while. Everyone feels sorry for Kelly and wish her a speedy recovery.   Angela Donlan continued with her leg and everyone ran their subsequent legs for the experience, but the failure of both runners to complete leg one meant that the ladies team was automatically disqualified from the race.

 In the meantime, the A team got off to a good start and it soon boiled down to a battle with Wharfedale.  However, Tom Corrigan and Matt Lalor managed to build up a lead and they handed over in first place with a 35 second lead over Wharfedale.

 Chris Singleton and Julian Hood set off on leg two and increased this lead to around a minute before handing over to third leg runners Shaun & Stephen Chew. However, in this leg, they were caught by the chasing Wharfedale pair who managed to pull away and establish a lead of around one minute.

Jimmy Craig and Nick Treitl took over on leg four against what was probably the best pairing in the Wharfedale team – Sam Watson & Ted Mason, who increased the lead even further. On the fifth leg, Gary Shaw and Luke Maude clawed back a bit of the deficit and going into the final leg, Wharfedale had a lead of around two and a half minutes.  Marc Hartley and Ian Liversedge started to eat into this lead and when they left the canal, they had reduced it to around one minute, fifty seconds. They continued to whittle this lead down and when Wharfedale turned off the road into the finish at the rugby club, the Barlick pair could be seen coming under the bridge after them.  

It had been an exciting tussle throughout the day between Wharfedale & Barlick and at the end of nearly six hoursa racing , only 47 seconds separated them, but it was Wharfedale who took the honours and they ran out worthy winners.   It was almost 12 minutes before the third place team of Calder Valley came home.

 As Wellington once said, “It was a damn close thing”.   As it happened, a 2 minute penalty was imposed on Barlick for the leg four runners taking the wrong route, even though it made little difference to the final result.  Even with this penalty, the overall time was still under six hours and few teams have ever achieved this.  It was disappointing to come second, but that takes nothing away from the whole of the A team who put up such a great battle against a very much in form Wharfedale team.  

The B team also put in some good performances and finished 12th overall. The C Team finished 29th.

2 Barlick Fell Runners 5:57:30 (before imposition of a 2 minute penalty.

Joshua Boyle continued his good form after winning the Scottish national under 17 title at the weekend in Ben Lomand, with another win at Mearley.  On the way out Josh was pushing the pace with Darren Kay in hot pursuit and Sam Watson in 3rd.  Josh opened a good lead by the climb and maintained it to the finish winning the race by over a minute.  Sam Watson finished 2nd and Darren Kay held off John Whiteside of Trawden to take 3rd despite an injury to his foot.  Nick Treitl was next Barlicker home finishing 5th and Andy Berry finished 12th, just missing out on the team prize to Wharfedale.  Also running were, Jonathon Boothman, Glenn Whittaker, Pete Jackson and Richard Treitl.  Afterwards everyone retired to the pub for the free pasta supper provided by the Calf's Head at Worston.
