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.

Our long distance enthusiast was out again this weekend. This time, Mick Plummer took part in this 23.5 mile /3200 ft event and he completed it in a time of 4 hours 49 minutes.

Because of the weather, this year, the race was not run on the traditional route, but on an alternative route that went up to The Stoop.

At the front of the field, it was a close battle between Tom Addison of Helm Hill and Tom Adams of Ilkley. On the run back, Tom Adams was in second place, but he looked like he was poised, waiting for his moment to take the lead. However, Tom Addison held him off to take victory by one second. Mark Addison of Helm Hill was third.

Five Barlickers entered the race and finished as follows:

13 Shaun Chew 42:58
41 Sam Wadsworth 46:06
81 Andy Berry 49:35
114 John Boothman 51:18
176 Derek Walkden 56:35

Ilkley Harriers were first team.

The day also saw the first Barlick junior out in a race. James Daggart completed the U12 course in 14:03. Not bad for his first race. (Picture in the gallery).

In this half marathon, Stephen Chew (running for Blackburn) finished in 15th place in a time of 1:21:20.

Mick Plummer, the long distance specialist, took part in this 22 mile race and finished in 63rd place in a time of 4:28.

Twenty five runners turned out for this race in very snowy and windy conditions. The leading finishers were:

1 Ian Holmes 36:57
2 Sam Watson 37:01
3 Martin Peace 38:58

The two Barlickers finished:

6 Jonathan Boothman 45:03
7 Scott Baistow 45:30

If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact Stephen Chew on:
Tel 01282 544417 or 07896 210388.

Alternatively, you can always leave a comment on the club facebook page.

However, if you have any particular views on the new vest, please make them know as quickly as possible, as we should like to place an order by the end of the week.

Local Girl Lucy Horrocks Causes Upset to Win Silver

At the British Cyclo Cross Championship, riding for Hope Factory Racing, Lucy Horrocks came second in the U14 Girls Event. She had aleady moved up into second place by the second lap and she rode a very cool race to retain this position and take silver, surprising many in the sport. She will still be in this age group next year, so expect to hear more about this talented young cyclist in the future.

The turnout for this social run was magnificent. Ten runners went on the beginners run with Shaun Chew, whilst a further twenty five went on the longer more conventional pub run. At the summit of Pin Haw, this group split up, with one group taking a longer route back. It was a large turn out, but there was something for everybody.

When everyone returned to the pub, they were joined by a further three none running members, a total of 38 people on the night.

This race was won by Ian Nixon of Pudsey & Bramley in a time of 25:25, with Ian Holmes of Bingley 2 seconds behind him and Nick Charlesworth of Wharfedale 3rd.

On what was a fast course, Scott Baistow of Barlick was 11th out of a large field of 51 starters.

One of the items on the agenda for this meeting will be the design of the club vests. Any club member who wants any input as to the colour and design of the running vests is welcome to come along and chip in. Terry Lonergan will be there to provide some professional input. The meeting is due to start at 7:30 pm.

Despite an outbreak of man flu and some still not recovered from the New Year celebrations, there was a good turnout of 13 runners, including 2 ladies, for this first social run of the year. Expect a few more next week, when everyone is back to normal.

Barlick fell runners are now starting to crop up in various races. At the front of the field, Carl Bell broke the record holding off Morgan Donnelly to win the race.

73 John Boothman (MV50) 1:12:06

166 Runners

Full results are in the new results section.

The New Year sees the club start to get under way and already, it will be organising three classic fell races in the current year. These are the Pendle Cloughs race, the Weets race and the FRA championship race, Buckden Pike. Details of all these race can be found under the "Races We Organise".
