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.

As the name suggests, this run takes place in the Howgills and as a result, there is some serious climbing involved in it in addition to the marathon distance.  It was therefore a great run by Ian Cox to come home in 7th place.

What an amazing run by Ian Livesey this weekend.  This race is 38 miles long with ascent of 1,100 ft and runs along the Six Dales Way.    The record for the event was 5 Hours and 44 minutes.  Ian felt a bit intimidated at the start, as he found himself standing next to the British 100K women's champion, but the Barlick spirit won through and not only did he win the race, but he also smashed the record, finishing in a time of 5 hours, 7 minutes.  

This is a really good fell race and not only that, it is local too.  The only one Barlicker to take part this year was Gary Bradley and he had a creditable performance finishing in 37th place out of 107.

37 Gary Bradley 2:54:09.

On an evening where the conditions were almost perfect, a record number of 256 runners turned up for this popular race, which follows the lanes and tracks from Earby to the summit of Pinhaw and back.  There were some notable performances all round.  The race winner was Ben Fish.  Not only did he win, but he won with a comfortable gap over the second place runner Jonathan Cleaver.  At the finish he looked strong and could probably have recorded an even faster time, if he had been under pressure.  Third finisher was the talented young runner from Keighley & Craven, Eric Beaumont. He was the first of four under 18 men in the top twenty and this bodes well for the future of the sport. 

The ladies' race was dominated by Barlick.  First home was W35 Jacqueline Collins, but quite amazingly the second home was the talented young runner Lucille Pickles who was shepherded into the funnel by the third Barlick lady, Rachel Villiers.

Fell running is not all about winning and for many, it is a personal challenge.  In that respect, it was great to see old friends who always seem to have been a part of the fell running scene, in this race,  such as Karen Goss of Clayton, who romped home to take the W70 prize.

The men's team prize went to Barlick Fell Runners, made up of Jonathan Cleaver, Jack Villiers and David Poole.

The ladies's team prize also went to Barlick of Jacqueline Collins, Lucille Pickles and Rachel Villiers.

It was cold, wet and windy for this 2nd race in the Hollingworth series.
