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.

Buttermere Horseshoe - 24 July 2021

6 Barlickers hit the lakes on Saturday to take on Buttermere Horseshoe with a choice of 2 races. The first is the short course, although to many, this would be a challenge in itself at 13 miles and 4980ft of climb.  Good performances all round  saw the lads take the team prize on what turned out to be a very warm day. The longer course which also set off at the same time covered 22 miles and 8250ft.
