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.

Last September, Barlick Fell Runners entered a team in the Mid Lancs Cross Country League.  This league is divided into four divisions and not unreasonably, all new teams to the league have to start in the lowest division.  The original intention was to run four out of the six races.  However, as the season unfolded, enthusiasm built and the club fielded a full team in each race.  As a result, Barlick finished the season as Division Four Champions with 39 points, ahead of Wigan with 25 points who were runners up.  Both clubs are now promoted to Division Three.  The presentation evening was the culmination of the season and saw a selection of the squad receive their medals and the winner's shield.

The early warm start to March became a distant memory to contestants in this 10 miles / 3100 ft race.  The race organizer agonized about the conditions and in the end decided to shorten the route slightly.  However, the runners still had to contend with freezing pools and and deep peat bog on the snow free lower section, whilst on the higher ground, the snow gradually increased to 8 inches, with extremely poor visibility at the turn around at Llyn Aran Benllyn.

The race was won by Felipe Jones of Aberystwyth AC 1:06:46. 
 
Richard TreitlI finished 68th in 1:49:07 and described it as a challenging race where full kit/head count was strictly enforced, but where, in reality, most people had the majority of their 'emergency' kit on.

A few more pictures of this race, from James Stead, which dramatically contrast the windy claggy conditions on the tops to, the more benign run back to the finish.

62 Julian Hood 33:14

Sarah Tipler had a great run to finish 4th lady and to lead the Barlickers home in this race, which was won by Rob Hope in 1:06:11, just ahead of the evergreen Ian Holmes.  Des had a good run to lead the Barlick men home, finishing thirty seconds in front of 'Screw'. Further down the field Rachel Lowther improved on last year's 'sister assisted' time, despite the fact that the going was tougher this year.
