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.

The first of the winter night events was held at Lothersdale.  For the uninitiated, these are not races, but are timed training events.  Wharfedale's Jack Smith demonstrated that he is getting back to form by recording the fastest time of the night of 27:58 for the run up to Pin Haw and back.

The two Barlick contenders finished as follows:

10 Dave Halliday 32:54
15 Pete Jackson 33:16

Des Walkden completed this race which is a 6.5k trail run, an 18k mountain bike ride and 5.5k trail run.

He finished 77th out of 203 solo finishers in 2:47:05
He felt that his lack of mountain bike experience let him down as the course was very steep, icy and technical and suited the better mountain bike riders.  Other than that, he thoroughly enjoyed his day out in what he described as a well organised event.

31 Scott Baistow 1:31:47 (2nd U23)

10 John Boothman 22:55
42 Mark Browne 27:57

It was a wet night, but it still saw 28 individuals compete in teams or on their own in this popular event.

The first team back and overall winners were Shaun & Steve Chew and were just in front of the first individual back - John Raho.

Kirsty Hall was first solo lady.

In the absence of Mark Nutter, Ivan Whigam had a clear run to finish as the leading Clayton runner to take the Badger Trophy.

Shaun Chew ran the five miles of this night race of terrifying trails, hills of horror, menacing marshals and a final downhill sprint to the finish, to win this race in 37:14
