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.

This race used to go past the monument twice, with a very steep climb up to it the second time round, but that loop has been closed off and the race now just runs on the moor top.  It was a bit misty with a bit of moisture in the air, but perfect for running.  A few Barlickers turned out and were led home by Sam Horrocks, followed by Carl Nevison, who had another very good run.

13 Sam Horrocks 27:22
18 Carl Nevison 27:32 (1st M55)
28 Andrew Smith 29:39 (1st M60)
30 Mark Horrocks 29:53 (2nd M60)

The pub run this week is literally a pub run.  It starts at the Old Stone Trough at Kelbrook, visiting the Black Lane Ends and the Alma Inn before returning to Kelbrook.  It is to celebrate Carl Pawson's birthday.  Carl is a drinker with a running problem. 

Excellent performances from both the Barlick Men and Women's teams on a hot day. The men came 5th place, despite last minute injuries. Well done to those who stepped in. The women finishing very well in 3rd place.

This race has altered slightly from what it used to be.  It now starts on the road by the car park in front of the dam.  The course over the tops has changed slightly and towards the finish, it now takes the long way around the res. 

Early on in the race, the young whippet, Joseph Ormrod from Rossendale Harriers took the lead and from that point onwards, he looked unassailable and in the end, he ran out an easy winner.  On the way out, Tom Corrigan and Craig Shearer were running together, but on the climb, they were split up by Adam Whale of Clayton and they finished 2nd and 4th respectively.

In the ladies race, Laura Hesketh took the honours with our leading girls finishing 4th & 5th and Lisa Gee had a great run to finish in the top half of the table.

All the Barlickers ran well tonight and hopefully, it augurs well for the coming weekend.

These two races were dominated by runners from Skipton AC and Nidd Valley who both appear to have made it a club championship race. 

The short race was surprisingly won by Robert Cranham who is supposed to be taking it steady because of injury. 

In the long race, Skipton dominated the top ten places, with Julian Hood taking first place.  Stephen Shorrock had a good run to finish second and Paul "Crabby" Crabtree finished third representing his new club, Trawden.  David Pease had a good run to take a top ten place and Carl Nevison put in another good performance in two days to take 12th place. The ever present Andrew Smith took yet another M60 1st place. 

In the ladies race, Jacqueline Collins, in her second race in two days, came home in 4th place and a very tired looking Nicola Muller finished in 8th place.
The Barlickers finished as follows:
