Down as a road run but probably more of a trail run following the old railway outbound and canal towpath return with roads / paths between. Great day out and venue, well worth going.

Race Winner - Ian Livesey Race Winner - Ian Livesey Mike Scothern

Ian Livesey had a great start to the New Year by winning the Central Lancashire Half Marathon and he followed it up today with another cracking run, another win and another PB.

He won in a time of 1:11:50 knocking 56 seconds off his previous PB as well as showing a clean pair of heels to decent runners, Rob Danson, 2nd, Rob Affleck 3rd and Shaun Livesey 4th.

It was a blustery day for this race, although much of the route was surprisingly sheltered and as the rain held off, it made it an enjoyable race.  John Boothman once more took part and he finished in 103rd position, in a time of 43:17.  This compares to his PB of 42:00 last year and it seems that the weather and to much good living over Christmas took its toll.

A bit behind the times with this one, but the results have only just become available.  Our sole member out on the fells on the first day of the New Year was Richard Treitl, who finished 115 out of 150 entrants in a time of 29:36.


We had a good turn out of runners today in this event and as a result, we had a full ladies team, a V35 ladies team, two men's teams, a V40 men's team and our first junior runner in a cross country race.

With the muddy conditions and a strong wind, Aaron Slater picked a tough race to make club history by being the first junior to represent the club in a cross country race.  He did well in his debut race, finishing in the top half of the field.

In the ladies race, Sarah Tipler made a good start and immediately went into the lead which she held for the first lap.  She was eventually passed by Anna Lupton, Joanne Nelson and Clare McKeown and finished in 4th place.  Before the race, Lorraine Slater was looking remarkably relaxed (for her) and although cross country is not her preferred type of race, she had a good run to finish second for Barlick.  All our girls did well, including new member Paula Clark, as they all finished in the top half of the field.  This effort now puts the ladies team 2nd in Division Three.

Matt Lalor had a brilliant run to lead the men's team home, finishing in 7th position overall. with another four Barlickers behind him finishing in the top twenty.  This performance made Barlick first team out of all four divisions. It also placed Barlick firmly at the top of Division Three with maximum points.  The "B" team were led home by Shaun Chew, putting them in 15th position out of all four divisions.

The finishing times and positions for all Barlickers were as follows:


29 Aaron Slater 8:24
