They are fast, they are furious and they are fun. There were two Barlick teams out as such, but there were other Barlickers out there joining in. Although all Barlickers, the Duffys ran as a family team; They finished as follows:
10 Leg 1 Zac Kaye 12:06 Leg 2 Ben Whitehead 10:29 Leg 3 Alex Mason 11:03 Total Time 33:38
46 Leg 1 Tony Duffy 14:00 Leg 2 Ciara Duffy 13:45 Leg 3 Garth Duffy 13:06 Total Time 40:51
Rachel Villiers teamed up with her husband and Sheldon Pickles, who finished in 30th place as follows:
30 Leg 1 Mark Villiers 12:39 Leg 2 Rachel Villiers 12:24 Leg 3 Sheldan Pickles 12:03 Total Time 37:06
Jack Villiers recorded a time of 10:15 and was in a Seedhill team which finished 6th and Lucille Pickles recorded a time of 12:09 in a team which finished 26th
A bright day, but with a deceptively cool breeze, greeted the runners for this 12.5 mile / 2789 ft race. Good performances all round from the Barlickers who made the trip, with a top ten finish for Stephen Shorrock.

Well done to all the juniors who turned out for these races. It was particularly rewarding to see Lucille Pickles & Isaac Reeday secure podium places and it was good too to see the performance of Jacob Reeday who came 7th in the U13 race.

This was the Lancashire Fell Championship Race and what a day it turned out to be. Two Lancahire Fell Running Champions in the club. And both from the same family. Young Betsy Pickles was first off in the U9 race where she finished 2nd girl. Luckily for her, the first finisher was not a Lancastrian so she took the championship place.
Then her sister took part in the U13 race. She not only came home in first place, but she came home with a good margin over 2nd place Libby Rickerby.
Finally, in the U17 race, Jack Villiers came home in third place and as a result, he earned a Lancashire Vest and will represent his county in the Inter Counties Fell Championship in June.
