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.

Race Reports

  • Mid Lancs Cross Country, Leigh - 9 December 2017

    A terrific performance by Sarah Jarvis saw her finish in 2nd place and great support from Rachel Villiers and Lorraine Slater saw the girls finish first team. Not only that, but Leanne Dinsdale, Jennifer Hird and Victoria Peel ran their socks off too, for the ladies B team to finish 6th overall. As a bonus, the Barlick ladies also finished first V35 team too. 

    For the men, in the early part of the race, James Tingle and Lee Parrington were pushing each other round, but as the race progressed, James opened up a gap on Lee. In third place for Barlick was that redoubtable runner Lucas Payne and working his way through the field behind him was another fine veteran of running, Chris Smale.   Together with support from Dan Taylor and Ian Cocks, the team came home in 7th place overall.

    The finishing times and places for the Barlick runners were:

  • Wadsworth Half Trog - 3 December 2017

    Sam Watson had a very good run and not only won this race, but in doing so, he set a new course record.   Sam is a great lad and and all at Barlick Fell Runners will want to congratulate him on this achievement..

    However, in setting this record and winning the race, he was closely pushed by our own Danny Mills, who finished just one second behind him!  That was great racing between these two athletes.  Not only that but David Mirfield was following on closely behind them both in third place and with Andy Berry in 8th place, it meant that Barlick took the team prize.

    With our 4th runner securing a top twenty finish, it was a good day out for Barlick

    1 Sam Watson 1:11:12(Wharfedale) (New Record)
    2 Danny Mills 1:11:13
    3 David Mirfield 1:11:30
    8 Andy Berry 1:17:58
    16 Lucas Payne 1:23:15

  • David Staff Memorial Race - 26 November 2017

    This is a great little race over 4 miles with 1,000 ft of ascent.  This year, there were cold wintry showers and it was slippery underfoot on the sodden muddy tracks with ice and snow on the higher ground.  Water run offs on the downhill sections made descending very tricky at times (some described it as running down a waterfall).  Just two Barlickers took part:

    74 Gary Parkinson 45:55
    90 Richard Treitl 50:44

    Peter Coates of Clayton was the winner in 30:46.

    110 finishers.
