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.

The race was easily won by Grant Cunliffe of Rossendale who was way out in front of the rest of the field.  If the fell tops had been dryer, he might have set a new course record.  He was followed home by Adam Wale who was first M40.

The first woman home was Louisa Powell Smith followed by Molly Ralphson who was first W50.

The Barlickers were led home by Matthew Smedley who finished 6th.

The Barlick women were lead home by Jacqueline Collins who finished in 3rd place and 1st W40, with another three of our girls in the top ten.

The Kelbrook Race used to be run in conjunction with Kelbrook Gala.  There is now an attempt to revive the gala and this year, a Summer Fair is starting just after the fell race.  Details:


This will be from The Bankers Draft, Barrowford.  Be there ready for a 7:00 pm start.

A good turnout for this race, which is the third in the club championship series.  The Barlickers were led home by Ben Whitehead.  He prepared for this race by yesterday drinking large amounts of beer at the football festival at Cowling.  He resigned himself to just having a trot out today in view of his over indulgence yesterday.  He started off very steadily and to his surprise, he felt OK.  He started picking off runners and on the way back, he found himself in a group of three runners, who were behind the first three in the race.  It was nip and tuck between these three runners, but on the steep hill down the road from the fell, Ben felt that he had worked so hard to keep up with them, that he was not going to be outdone by anyone at such a late stage of the race.  In the end, as they turned the corner and along the lane. it became a sprint finish with Ben just managing to keep his nose in front.  The reward was 4th place in the race and first M40.

In the women's race Victoria Peel prepared for her race by doing 70 miles last weekend and leaving herself and her legs in a bit of a sorry state.  She visited her physio on Thursday and afterwards felt even worse.  However, in this race, she came alive and put in a great performance to finish second woman in the race.  Our women as a group all ran extremely and dominated this race, taking second place overall, the 1st W40 and 5 places out of the top ten.

Full Results

In view of the injury which he incurred in the London Marathon, John has given running a miss, except for a couple of steady jogs and at the same time, he pulled out of the Pennine Barrier and the Leeds Marathon as they were totally unachievable without totally wrecking his leg.  However, he decided to have a ride up to Edinburgh to have a go at the marathon. 

Being Scotland, rain was forecast and rain it did.  A lot before the start and it continued until John was half way round, when it did brighten up.    However, as soon as he finished, it was back to rain again.  As for the race itself, John set off steadily away with a view to seeing how his leg held up. stopping every five miles to stretch it, as a precaution.  He lack of running caused him a stamina shortage half way round, but nevertheless, he got round in one piece and he was very pleased to finish unscathed.  It was not a rapid run, but there again, it was not too bad.
