Barlick Fell Runners - Reports

Last week saw the first Barlick win by a junior boy.  This week saw a junior girl take the honours.  Jenna Boothman was first girl in the U12 race. Her sister Chloe also had a good run in the U9 race.

Dad, John Boothman was first Barlicker in the senior race.

Again only scant news of this race.  Apparently, Sam Gibbs was third overall.  The finishing order for the Barlickers was Sam, Screw, Jock, Jack Ingham and then Jean.

Further details follow.

We may have to wait a while for the results from this race, but the early news is that Luke Maude finished in 5th position and Chris Smale finished 7th.  Ted Mason won the race with Sam Watson second.  The other thing we know is that John Boothman was there.  That in itself is a bit of an obvious statement, as we all know that if there is a race, John Boothman will be there.  Gary Bradley also turned out.  Finally we also know that Craig Childs has made this his comeback race. 

In the junior races, Chloe Boothman ran in the under 9 race and her sister Jenna ran in the under 12 race.

All we need now are the results.  Maybe BOFRA will be able to get hold of them.

In the U9 race, Ellie Honeyman finished in 14th place overall and 4th girl.

 Full Results

Scott Boardman took part in this race and reports that he got lots of encouragement wearing his Barlick vest.  The two lap course was hilly and in addition, it was really warm and windy, but the supporting crowds were great.

Scott finished in 78th position in a time of 1:38:23 which is a new PB. 

There were around 600 starters.

Race winner Harley Treitl and Andy Hodge Race winner Harley Treitl and Andy Hodge Woodentops

A proud moment for Harley Treitl today as after winning the U8/U10 race, he met  Olympian Rower, Andy Hodge.

In winning his race, Harley made history, as it was the first ever win for a junior member in a fell race.  Another junior, Jenna Boothman, showed typical Boothman  grit by running today in the Park Run at Skipton, then at Gargrave Show and finally at Burnsall.  The junior training sessions only started recently, but they are well attended by a large bunch of enthusiastic youngsters, so expect to see more Barlick junior members in fell races in the future.

Finishing places and times for those who turned out today are as follows:


1 Harley Treitl 4:43
20 Harry Carpendale 6:34
25 Clover Edwards 6:55


16 Elliot Phillips 8:07 (7th U12)
31 Jenna Boothman  9:03 (3rd race of the day)

Andrew Chew, Ian Livesey, Julian Hood and Andrew Carson Andrew Chew, Ian Livesey, Julian Hood and Andrew Carson Woodentops

A good day for the club in this race, with Ian Livesey and Julian Hood taking 2nd and 3rd places respectively with Andrew Chew making it three Barlickers in the top ten which was enough to win  Barlick the team prize.

The race was won by the evergreen Ian Holmes who showed to day that he is just not a fell runner.

Locals Ted Mason and Fred Bosomworth are often alone fighting it out on the fells for who is winner of this race -  but not this year.  Young Sam Tosh turned up and upset the local party, by taking the honours, but he had to fight off a strong challenge from veteran Rob Jebb

Because of the many races on today, only two Barlickers entered this race and they finished as follows:

6 Nick Treitl 16:47
55 Lee Edwards 20:55

Darren Kay still has it, as he demonstrated today by showing a clean pair of heels to the rest of the field.  Andrew Driver had a top twenty finish and  led the Barlickers home.  In the ladies race, Lorraine Slater finished 1st FV40.

Stephen Chew would have liked this race as there was a choice of pies for the runners at the pub afterwards.

133 runners enjoyed a great evening of 5k racing, expertly organised by Alan Taylor and his Wesham RR.  Courses don't get much flatter than this and on a warm and dry night, doubtless many recorded PBs.  Sadly, no PB for Terry Lonergan, but he was still pleased to be inside a race target of 24 minutes.
