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

Townley Park Junior Races - 22 July 2018

1 Harry Roberts 3:38
2 Harry Driver 3:59
6 Zachary Beresford 4:38

10 Tabitha Berry 10:25

8 Connor Fitzpatrick 17:36

3 Alex Mason 14:12

This race was won by Elite Runner Alberto Vender from Italy in a time of 1:06:41.  Italy had three finishers in the top ten and as a result took the team prize.

Given that there were so many Elite Athletes in this race, Tim Chadwick came home in a respectable 77thd place and even Richard Treitl left over sixty runners in his wake even though he was disappointed with his race.   No good views on the day, as the summit was enveloped in cloud.  The Barlicker's times and places were:

77 Tim Chadwick 1:25:23
513 Richard Treitl 2:13:15

The race winner was Rhys Findlay-Robinson of Dark Peak in a time of 3.59.55.  The Barlickers finished as follows:

54 Ben Hoyle 5.34.45
80 John Boothman 6.04.24
83 Gary Bradley 6.07.53
87 Jack Ingham 6.09.42

There were 107 finishers out of what must have been 180 starters.

Alva Games Junior Races - 14 July 2018

Written by

Six Juniors made the trip up to Scotland for The 162nd Alva Games. With the hot weather lately, it made a very steep race even more trickier as the mountain was very dry and dusty. A few pre race nerves after the recce soon disappeared as a brilliant run from Harley Treitl brought him home in 2nd place. A few worried looks before the start didn't stop Lucille Pickles storming home in 7th place after a fantastic run, to take the 1st girl prize. Next in for Barlick was Jody Whitfield finishing 4th girl, just missing out on a spot on the podium. Evie Scott made the small trip from Dunblane to represent her hometown club once more, to finish 7th girl after going nearly 8 months without a hill race. Lily-Grace Clayton rounded off the girls with a great effort to finish 9th girl, followed by her brother Oscar Clayton, who put in a fantastic effort to finish 29th overall after been unable to get up the hill on the recce.

U12 Race
2 Harley Treitl  11:48. (2nd Boy)
7 Lucille Pickles 13:41 (1st Girl)
13 Jody Whitfield 18:38 (4th Girl)
20 Evie Scott 20:06 (7th Girl)
22 Lily-Grace Clayton 20:29 (9th Girl)
29 Oscar Clayton 25:04

Welcome back to Virgil Barton who was the only Barlicker in this championship race.  He celebrated his return to the club with a very creditable performance, finishing 44th out of the 201 finishers in the men's race.

44 Virgil Barton 1:33:40

This is a tough challenge.  It is 40K of mountain terrain with 3,000 meters of ascent and it was a quite incredible run from Luke Maude to complete the course in just over five and a half hours.

8 Luke Maude 5:33:50
99 Tim Pigott 8:34:12
