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.

For those who are wondering, this is a new Park Run in Ulverston in South Lakeland.  The course is full of twists and turns and the terrain is a mixture of grass, mud, woodland and tarmac.  In addition, it was raining heavily during the race.  However, in Barlick Fell Runners, we have a tough set of up and coming youngsters.  Not deterred by the weather or the terrain, young Lucille Pickles went out and put in another one of those sterling performances we have come to expect of her.  She not only finished as the first female runner, but she also broke the course record for a JW10 runner.

Sadly, the sports afternoon was poorly attended - the weather obviously putting off many visitors.  However, that didn't spoil the event.  Those who did attend weren't bothered about a bit of the wet stuff and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The Senior race had just six runners, with an U17 joining them.  Kristian Clayton chose to make his fell racing debut in this race and he certainly picked a tough little one for a starter.

The full senior results were:

1 Jonny Bradshaw, Wharfedale Harriers, 16:01
2 Tom Millard, Wharfedale Harriers, 16:02
3 Declan Bulmer, Wharfedale Harriers, 17:45
4 John Boothman, Barlick, 21:00
5 Sue Marshall, Skipton, 22:56
6 Kristian Clayton, Barlick, 44:45

28 Emma Taylor 1:22:09 (3rd lady)

17 John Boothman 24:06 (2nd M50)

The second race of the day for Virgil after a cracking run in the Road Race.
