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.

Worsthorne with Hurstwood Relays - 14 March 2010

This was an unusual relay in that it was effectively four separate 10K races with the combined results put together at the end.  So the second race or "leg" started before the first race finished, so no one new the standing of their team.  Having said that, it made each "leg" feel like a proper race.  Barlick had a good day finishing 1st ladies, 1st men, 1st mixed with the vets taking second place.  It was also good to see so many "social runners" out racing and what was interesting is that they put on a damn good show.   

The Barlick teams finished as follows:

1 Barlick Leg Ends:  Barrie Charnley, James Austin, Ian Cocks, Ben Whitehead (1st Men)

3 BFR Pub Run Mixed:  Emma Taylor, Jac Collins, Zac Kaye, Andy Collins (1st Mixed)

4 Barlick Vets,:  Jock Boothman, Andy Smith, Andrew Driver, David Pease (2nd Vets)

10 Barlick Ladies:  Molly Ralphson, Heather Driver, Paula Cullen, Emma Pease (1st Ladies)

19 BFR Mixed Allsorts:  Eve Boothman, Jamie Fox, Leanne Dinsdale, Sean Fitzpatrick

24 BFR Social Runners:  Jackie Bonsall, Maggie Bugler, Jayne Lee, Daren Holdsworth

29 Quad Squad:  Hayley Whitehead, Marie Beech, Amanda Holden, Megan Worswick

37 Teams
