Sadly a rainy day greeted this quite unique fell race where juniors and seniors run together. This used to be common, but is quite rare today. Jack Woods of Ilkley won the race in 10:39. The Barlickers finished as follows:
13 Garth Duffy 15:36 (1st BU12)
14 Christopher Whitfield 15:45 (3rd MV40)

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.

Jack Ingham & Ian Livesey are the latest Barlickers to test themselves in ultra running. This race involved running 44 miles, including 7,131 of ascent and they entered the pairs section. They finished in 5th position, although at the penultimate check point, they were lying third.

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
