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. Membership fees for the club are as follows:
  • Seniors
  • For members over the age of 18
  • £10/year

This race was postponed from 24 March. Our sole representative was Andrew Carson and he had a PB, finishing in 40th position out of 808 finishers.

40 Andrew Carson 40:17

We had eight Barlickers entered in this race. Two did not start, Pete Jackson due to injury and John Boothman on doctor's orders but he joined the supporters who were out there to cheer on those who did take part. Only four completed the course and we have no note at the moment why the other two did not finish. The times were:

Nick Treitl 3:30:48
Andy Berry 4:15:34
Michael Thistlethwaite 4:34:29
Tom Bebee 5:01:54
Mark Sandamas DNF
Richard Treitl DNF

Barlick were 35th team.

This race was first held in 1971 and was part of the Barnoldswick gala weekend. It used to start at the Rolls Royce club and go through the centre of the town before makings its way to the narrow lanes that lead to open moorland and the 1,302 ft summit of Weets. It was a straight up and down race and as a lot of the running was on the road, it was very fast. In its day, it attracted a field of top runners, such as Kenny Stuart and Ron Hill.

The costs of closing off most of the roads through the centre of Barnoldswick meant that the race was eventually abandoned, but it was resurrected by Kevin Rogan with a new course which did not involve running through the town.

The new course is half a mile shorter than the old one, but is much more challenging in that there is more off road running and more climbing, some of it on the return leg when you least expect it. The course is still partially on the road and as such, it will not suit off road purists, but if you are looking for a different race with a bit of a challenge, this race will not disappoint.

Records: 2013 Tom Cornthwaite 37:14 / 2010 Victoria Wilkinson 40:31

The race starts at 11:00 am. 

Junior Races  U9, U11, U13, U15, U17.

Sorry, but due to the Covid 19 outbreak, this event has been cancelled.

 

This race was first run in 1981 and the course was designed by Peter Jebb, who together with his wife Anne, organised the Buckden Fell Race for 20 years. Peter was asked to organise a race by the Buckden Gala committee after winning the Fellsman Hike in 1981. In 1987, Peter altered the route to make the race more interesting and tougher. The course has remained the same ever since and this was the course on which the records were set.

Records: 1988 Colin Donnelly 30:51 / 1993 Carol Greenwood 36:32

This is a category A race and if warranted by the weather conditions, you will be required to carry full body cover. The decision will be made by the race organiser on the day and will be final. If you have no kit, you will not be allowed to race, so please come prepared.

Parking in Buckden is very restricted.  There will be a special car park for fell runners and their supporters, so please do not obstruct the lanes in and around the village, but use the specially designated car park, for which there will be a small charge.  This will be on the road to Hubberholme.  The charge will be £3.00 and will go towards enhancing the income from the gala.

The race starts at 2:30 pm

Barlick had three teams in these relays.  Two conventional teams and what was supposed to be a family team, but it was registered as a mixed team.  The details are:

A Team Pos    Time
Andy Berry 17 11:24
Michael Keegan     21 11:16
Rob Weir 21

10:58

 

 

 

 

B Team Pos    Time
Simon Kelly 33 11:51
Andrew Carson      22 11:16
Scott Baistow 25 12:01

 

Mixed Team         Pos    Time
Sam Wadsworth 13 10:34
Fiona Brotherton 75 19:52
Sam Wadsworth 61 10:26

In 1999, on the old course, Sam Wadsworth won the egg stage in 3:26, only 4 seconds outside the record. Inspired by memories of former glories, he started at a furious pace, hoping that once more, he might do well in this part of the race. Going up the hill, he was second behind Tom Adams of Ilkley, but from there on, his advancing years and lack of training gradually took their toll. The mad dash at the start took too much out of him and his overall race time was down. However, further down the field, Fiona Brotherton continues to improve with each race.

49 Sam Wadsworth 18:43
308 Fiona Brotherton 34:31

About Us

Written by

The club was formed in December 2012 as a fell running club, but now also competes successfully in all running disciplines - Road, Cross Country, Fell and Trail. There is a strong spirit of inclusiveness and friendship within the club.

The club welcomes new members. You do not have to be a top runner to join the club. The existing membership covers a whole range of abilities, from those who like to compete at the top level, those who merely like to enjoy the experience of running, to those who are completely new to the sport.

So, whatever your level, you will always find a place in the club, whether it is going out with others of similar ability or joining one of our many training sessions, if you want to push your running to a higher level. And you will always find members in the club who will be happy to pass on their knowledge or offer you advice.

In addition, the club now has a large junior section which encourages participation in the sport by youngsters. You will find details of our junior activities in the Junior Web Site.

If you are interested in the joining the club, you will find an application form on our Membership Page.
