Three  Barlickers braved the windy elements on Blackpool sea front to take part in this half marathon.  Ian Livesey came home in 5th place in a time of 1:18:02.  Dan Taylor, did brilliantly on his overdue return to racing, exorcising his demons from his last race and taking 7 or 8 minutes off his previous time to finish in 1:29:24.

For her second ever race, Jackie Hodgson chose this half marathon.  Her time was 1:45:21 and she finished 40th lady!  Her overall position was 357 out of 1251 finishers.

This a good little 5 mile race with a tough little climb up to Paddy's Pole.  There was snow and ice on the tops and the Barlickers were some of the few runners just wearing a running vest.  Rob Hope won the race in 36:29.

A lovely clear night for this race, which ensured that the summit marshal successfully found the trig point.  The first figure to appear looked to be going at a fair pace and it was no surprise that it was the Peter Pan of fell running - Ian Holmes.  After passing the trig, he went over the edge of Pendle and descended in true Ian Holmes fashion - like a stone.  Chewy was chasing him, but the descent put paid to any hopes of catching this formidable fell runner.

Another runner who can always be guaranteed to put in a good performance was Kirt Livesey and he was in third place.  Thereafter followed many of the familiar faces that you expect to see on these head torch runs, but is was especially nice to see U21 James Bancroft and junior runner Cieran Crabtree

An amazing day out at Blackpool.  The ladies race saw Jackie Hodgson make her debut in an actual race.  Previously, she had only attended our training evenings.  Wearing her very clean and shiny bright new trainers, she led the ladies team home!  A star has made her first appearance on the running stage.  All the ladies were in sight of each other and Jackie was followed by Emma Bailey, Rachel Lowther and Paula Clark.

In the men's race Chris Singleton set off like he meant business and he maintained his strong classic running action throughout the race.  He was rewarded by finishing 4th overall.  As with the ladies race, the leading men were in sight of each other and Chris was followed home by Nick Treitl, Jimmy Craig and Ian Livesey.

This is a tough 20 mile race over boggy terrain incorporating 4,000 fit of ascent.   Richard Lowther was up for it and finished as follows:
