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.

• Any junior runner age 8 to 16 is welcome to come along to our Monday night training sessions. Please note we do not train on Bank Holidays.
• New runners are welcome to come along and try our sessions, however you will be expected to join our club if you attend our sessions regularly. Training fees are £4 per month paid by standing order and membership is £5 per year. (please see the membership page on our website for further info).
• In summer (Apr-Sept) we meet at Letcliffe Park in Barnoldswick and in the winter (Oct- Mar) we meet at Victory Park, Barnoldswick from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.
• A parent or responsible adult will need to complete a consent form.
• All children must ensure they are marked on the register between 6.15pm and 6.30pm.
• At training we split into several mixed ability groups led by Nick Treitl, Sarah Bell, Andy Berry, Lorraine Slater, Joanne Sadowsky, Luke Maude and Donna Milligan. We use regular time trials to help determine the groups.
• All training is aimed at preparing our juniors to take part in races and we expect those that train with us regularly to represent the club at races throughout the year – see our General Information Page.
• All our sessions take place outside in all kinds of weather therefore it is very important you come prepared. Appropriate clothing and footwear should be worn. We can give more detailed advice if needed but, in brief, you’ll need a synthetic base layer top (long sleeve/short sleeve/one or more) to suit the temperature and a windproof or waterproof jacket. Shorts are fine but you may prefer leggings if it’s especially cold. A thin hat (such as a ‘buff’) and thin gloves are also needed depending on the time of year. We supply Hi Visibility vests and head torches which must be worn if asked. Footwear should be proper running shoes (not fashion pumps or imitation football boots) with decent grip. Sports Direct usually have a good selection of junior shoes.
• It’s best not to try and eat a full tea before running; just have a light snack (banana, toast & jam etc.) and a drink, at least 40 minutes beforehand. You shouldn’t need a drink during the session but you’re welcome to bring one with you just in case.
• If you have any questions, please get in touch our contact details can be found on the contact us page at www.barlickfellrunners.co.uk/contact-us
• Finally, please join our Facebook page (Barlick Fell Runners Juniors) to keep up to date with all the latest information on training and racing.
