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.

Austwick Amble - 27 May 2024

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.
