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.

  • Seniors

It is a long time since this race was on the calendar and well done to Jamie McIlveny of Trawden for reviving it.   Sam Watson took the honours of winning the first of what we hope will be a new series of this race and was followed home by Ian Beresford and Nick Treitl.

Emma Taylor took the honours in the ladies race and well done to Ciara Duffy, who in her first senior outing finished 4th out of 13..

Five Barlickers made the 95 mile journey up to the Lakes for this race.  

They finished as follows:

5 Jimmy Craig 17:31
24 Lorraine Slater 21:48 (2nd woman, 1st W45)
28 John Boothman 22:02
35 Hannah Newbold 24:15 (1st WU23)
39 Dave Halliday 24:45

16 Cloey Masoon 26:41
30 Anne Marie Beech 30:40

The official results show Cloey Mason as finishing in 81st position in a time of just over the hour. In actual fact the results do not tell the full tale.  On her way to the race, she found that the M61/M6 was gridlocked due to an accident, so she arrived late and set off 14 minutes behind everyone else.  Her actual time was 47:35.

81 Cloey Mason 1:01:38


A good turnout from Barlick today with 5 finishers in the top ten.  In the early stages of the race, Robin Howie & Jack Smith of Wharfedale built up a good lead after the climb out of Wycoller to Watersheddles Reservoir.  They were busy racing each other and everyone wondered if they had put too much effort in too early and would be caught as the race progressed.  In the end, they ran out easy winners, with Lee Athersmith who had been trailing them at the Res, closing in on them.  

In the meantime, there was another club battle going on between David Mirifield, Andy Collins and Ian Beresford with them finishing in that order and good performances from Stuart Heaviside and Ben Whitehead completed the BFR top ten finishers.  

Carl Pawson still has his running head in the right place and he managed to hold off Declan Bulmer to take 11th place overall and first M45.  Andrew Smith is on fire, finishing just outside the top twenty and once more taking the 1st M55 place. 

All in all, it was a good show from Barlick, with everyone all the way down the field racing until the end.  Well everyone except Heather and Andrew Driver who went out for a gentle jog, seeing that Heather had run yesterday in the cross country.  Karen Lemon gave it her all, but again was suffering from two races in two days.  

4 David Mirfield 56:05 (2nd M35)
5 Andy Collins 56:12
6 Ian Beresford 56:46 (1st M40)
7 Stuart Heaviside 1:00:25
