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.

Bronte Way - 29 October 2023

Emma Talor Emma Taylor Woodentops

A  mixed bunch turned out for Barlick in this race.  There were some that were really trying, there were those that had not run for a while and were getting back into the swing of things and then there were those that were only in the race for the beer. 

Amongst those who was really trying was Emma Taylor who had a very determined run to finish 2nd woman.  Even towards the end, on the last ascent up Haworth Moor, she looked very strong and her 2nd place was a well deserved reward for such a performance.

In the men's race Robert Cranham, who is improving all the time, had a good race to lead the Barlickers home and finish in 11th place.  On another day, he might have made a top ten finish, but this was his first attempt at this race and at one stage, he was out running on his own and he had to stop and ask the way from passing walkers.

Carl Nevison & Andrew Smith were both really trying and were together at the first res on the tops, but age eventually made its mark and Carl finished 2nd for Barlick.

John Boothman was another Barlicker who was really trying, but at 8 miles, he was only just getting warmed up as he came to the finish line.

Ben Whitehead was not feeling too good on the day and he had a steady run over with Hayley.  Jacqueline Collins is still recovering from giving birth to her latest family member and for Des, this was his first run out for a little while and he certainly felt it as he approached Haworth. Paula Cullen was another one who knew that she had been in a race when she came to the last ascent.

It was good to see 15 Barlickers out in the race and good also to see many out on the course supporting.  It is a good race (thank you Keighley & Craven) and to cap it all, there was a good post race atmosphere outside The Fleece at the finish. 

The Barlickers finished:

11 Robert Cranahm  64:39
19 Carl Nevison 68:02
25 Andrew Smith 71:00
33 Emma Taylor 75:12 (2nd woman)
