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.

  • Seniors

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

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.

Cloey Mason turned out for this event and went for the marathon option which was 3 x 8.8 mile laps over road, trail and field.  Not only that, but it had 1,500 ft of climb in it.  Cloey found the 3rd lap particularly tough, but held on in there to finish 25th overall and 3rd lady.

This was another well organised race by Run Wales, with great views running up Great Orme and plenty of locals out supporting and offering hand fulls of jelly babies.

Sarah Jarvis is back racing and in this, her first race for many years, she has demonstrated why she was such a force to be reckoned with in the past.  She took just over an hour  to complete this ten mile race, finishing in 28th position overall and 2nd woman.  This was a County Championship race which means that Sarah got a silver medal, behind international runner Helen Clitheroe.  Not only that, but Sarah's time is the 5th fastest in the Uk this year for her age group (FV40) in a ten mile race.  

28 Sarah Jarvis 1:01:44 (2nd woman)
