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.

Lancashire Cross Country Championships - 6 January 2018

Sarah Jarvis - LV40 Lancashire Champion 2018 Sarah Jarvis - LV40 Lancashire Champion 2018 David Belshaw

Well, what a day out for our ladies.  Despite Leanne Dinsdale having to drop out at the last minute with injury and Victoria Peel picking up an injury during the race, the team did really well, finishing 5th team overall with three runners finishing in the top twenty.  Victoria incurred a back injury during the race and whilst many a lesser runner would have dropped out, Victoria battled on to the end, determined to get a finishing place, despite the pain that she was suffering.  

In the vet's category, the first two teams were way ahead of the rest of the field, with Blackburn just shading it over Barlick by three points with the Barlick team members getting silver medals.

In addition to the silver vet team medals, there were several individual medals, as follows:

Gold:  Sarah Jarvis - 1st LV40
Silver: Lorraine Slater - 2nd LV45
Bronze: Rachel Villiers - 3rd LV35
Bronze: Paula Cullen 3rd LV40

They finished as follows:

12 Sarah Jarvis 27:21 1st V40
17 Lorraine Slater 28:31 2nd LV45
19 Rachel Villiers 28:49 3rd LV35
27 Paula Cullen 30:45 3rd LV40
42 Victoria Peel 33:22

Chris Smale led the Barlickers home and in so doing earned himself a silver medal as 2nd V50.   Second home for Barlick was James Austin, with Scott McCredie shorly behind.

Silver: Chris Smale 2nd V50

55 Chris Smale 37:40 2nd V50
