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.  These are held at various times of the year..  The training sessions for the coming week are shown below.  Further details of what is involved in each session is lower down the page.

Monday with Leanne Dinsdale

The meeting place varies, but this is always posted on Facebook, along with what footwear is needed and usually what the session entails. It tends to alternate between a hill session one week and a speed session the next. with a social run thrown in every now and again.
The sessions are tailored for all abilities, the aim is to get everyone, regardless of ability, fitter and faster.
Wednesday Track Session with Matt Watson

These track sessions are open to members of all abilities and will be tailored to individual needs and goals. 
These sessions can be used to supplement a member's own training regime, but they also work well in conjunction with Leanne Dinsdale's Monday night hill sessions, adding some flat running to improve speed and running technique on the flat.

There is no charge other than the fee for using the track.
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.

The venue for the next pub run will be published on the Barlick Fell Runners Facebook Public Page
