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

Lothersdale show fell race is a very old race and many of those all old fell races were quite short and always ran the juniors along with the seniors. Lothersdale has continued with that tradition and it puts a certain amount of pressure on the seniors.  The juniors run off from the start at a furious pace, but the hill climb is not long enough to allow the greater stamina of the seniors to gain the advantage.  Andy Berry found himself in this invidious position today.  He had the beating of those young Turks, Logan Hargreaves-Madhas from Wharfedale and Euan Fraser from Trawden, but not over such a short course.  He therefore had to settle for 3rd place.  Nick Kendall finished in 7th place, but at least he had the excuse of this being his 3rd race of the day.

These were described as road relays, but it turned out on the day that they were held over a trail course.  No problem for our girls.  Annabel Ralph, Lorraine Slater and Jen Hird had  terrific performances coming away with Silver  Medals as Second Lancashire Team.

The ladies 'B' Team of Angela Donlan, Emma Bailey & Heather Driver came 6th and the 'C' Team of Hannah Newbold, Paula Clark & Hannah Watson finished 9th.

The men's team comprising Tom Corrigan, Shaun Chew, Lee Parrington & Dan Balshaw came home in 4th position.

Scott Boardman entered this race and finished in 7th place in a time of 40:51, which for him is a new PB.

Ian Livesey is down in London at the moment and entered this race, which is a flat three laps of trail and paths, just  to keep in shape. The hard man from the North ran out an easy winner with a time of 32:52, a lead of four minutes over the second place finisher.

Chris Smale 2nd and Rachel Villiers 1st lady.

Blacko is one of those few remaining fell races where everyone, including the juniors set off together.  (Lothersdale next week, is another such race).  The races is only 1.4 miles in length and as usual, the juniors set off at a pace, leaving the seniors to try and catch them.  The old heads like Alan Life & Chris Smale (nice to see him back running again) know how to pace themselves and they finished in first and second places respectively.  Shortly behind them in fifth position was James Tingle.  Further down the field, Jack Villiers having set off with the rest of the cavalry charge, found himself in front of his mum.  Having attained such a position, he was not going to relinquish it easily and he managed to hold her at bay until he reached the finishing line.  Mum still finished first lady though.

Barlick Ladies Win the Team Prize

There was a ding dong battle in the ladies race between Helen Glover and Sarah Tipler.  Helen was first to the top, but Sarah was not far behind her and set off back down in a determined manner and soon past her.  However, Helen stuck in behind her, hoping that she might be able to catch her on the fast section towards the end of the race.  And that is what happened.  Towards the end of the race, Helen once more took the lead and the honours, but what a battle between these two girls.

Although she was second, with support from Laura Craig and Hannah Watson, the Barlick ladies made off with the team prize.

In the junior races, Logan McCredie was second boy in the U9 race.
