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.

Barlick Fell Runners have a structured training programme which caters for all abilities and the details are below.  In addition, we have a complete beginners session which is basically a couch to 5K course and the next one will start in the Spring, when the weather gets better.  There are various structured training sessions as follows:

Monday with Leanne Dinsdale

These sessions are off road over fell and trail and sometimes they are a cross fit/circuit type session.  To take part, you need to be able to run 5-6 miles comfortably and turn up with off road shoes and for winter nights, a head torch.  The sessions cover a wide range of abilities and the main thing is that no one is left behind as the group always keeps tracking back to the slowest runner, so that everyone is always working to their ability level.  If you are not sure if this session is for you, turn up and give it a try - you will be made most welcome.

Tuesday with Nick Treitl & Andy Berry.  

These sessions will be focussed on progressing abilities for both flat speed & hill strength through varied sessions.  All abilities welcome & catered for, but the sessions will be demanding and will take place from various locations.

Tuesday Track Session with Harvey Grace

These sessions are for those who want to improve their speed.

 Wednesday - Pub Run

These are informal sessions and cater for all abilities.  Each week, those taking part meet up at a local hostelry, have a gentle running session lasting around an hour and then retire to the bar to sample the local ale and chew the fat.  Everyone is welcome on these runs including none members, in fact, they are a good way to get to know the ethos of the club and decide if it is for you.

Thursday with John Boothman

This is aimed at intermediate runners, people who have completed the beginner course and want to take their running a little further.  Having said that, the session also attracts the more experienced runners.  The group always tracks back during a session so that no one is left behind.  The better runners feel as much benefit as the less experienced as they run much further.  Each week, the group will cover around 8 -10 km.  In winter, trail or fell shoes are recommended, although not every week is off road.  Bring along a head torch in the winter months.
