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

This year's race was the England selection race for the International Snowdon Race, which meant a class field. The Barlick tribe was led home by the returning Jimmy Craig. His first solo race since his operation at the back end of last year, he showed that he’s still a class act on the descents and that with a good few weeks of solid training he’ll be back on top form. Lucy Brown was our solo female runner at this event and once again put in a strong performance and showed why we are all happy to have her back in a Barlick vest!

Paula Radcliffe as been to the very top in her running career, but she has now entered a different world where, like many others, she is trying to fit in some running in between looking after two children and other domestic pressures.   In her article in the Daily Telegraph, she makes her suggestions as to how to enjoy mid life running.

Two Barlickers went up for this 23 mile / 7.513 ft race.  

The wind and rain was pretty bad up the first climb, although it did improve in the second half of the race, with some great views greeting the runners.  Despite the weather, Gary had a decent run and knocked 13 minutes off his time for last year.  The full results are yet to be published, but provisionally, the times are:

50 Gary Bradley 5:43:46
?? Jack Ingham 6:38:00

Des Walkden thought that he would try something different, so he travelled down to the beautiful location of Betws y Coed in North Wales  On the race day it was typical pouring down Welsh weather.  He entered the 50K multi event which was as follows:

Stage 1 8km trail run 1028 ft climb
Stage 2 11km road bike 1082 ft climb
Stage 3 1km kayak- shortened to 0.5km due to bad weather
Stage 4 9km trail run 1154 ft climb
Stage 5 14km road bike 695 ft climb
Stage 6 7km trail run 879 ft climb

He managed to pace himself OK and finished 13th overall in a time of 3:48:34.

154 finishers.
