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.

The winner of this race was Chris Miller from Harrogate.  The couple of Barlickers finished:

4 Julian Hood
16 Shaun Chew

The times will follow when available.

5 Dan Mills 40:59 

Barlick dominated this race with Julian Hood winning the race out right and Rachel Villiers winning the ladies race.  In addition Barlick took several category first places.  Jamie Milligan injured his ankle and had to drop out and Heather Driver sacrificed her race to help him.  Eventually, he got a lift back to the start on the local farmer's quad bike. These are the provisional results.  200 started, 197 finished, 2 injured, 1 nurse Heather.
1 Julian Hood 37.58
4 Dave Mirfield 39.09
7 Andrew Chew 41.05 (1st MV 40)
12 Lucas Payne 12th 42.02 (1st MV 45)
14 Andy Berry 14th 42.06
15 Andrew Carson 42.18
21 Jimmy Wright 43.23

141 Jean Rawlinson 1.01.03 (1st FV 65)
175 Susan Hird 1.07.21 (f1st FV60)

A bit late with this one, but would you believe that it has taken this length of time for the results to appear.  Anyway, Chris Smale had a great race to finish in 2nd place, only thirty seconds behind race winner, Gaz Pemberton from Wharfedale.  Not bad for a V50.

5 Chris Smale 26:23 (1st MV50) 
23 John Boothman 31:35

For a change it was a lovely day for this race, with a clear blue sky greeting the runners at the start.  There were fewer runners than normal this year due to the Championship Race taking place at Tebay, but the closer friendly atmosphere was a useful reminder of how fell races used to be.

97 Virgil Barton
255 Lorraine Slater 1:42:24
398 Hannah Newbold 2:01:41
DNF Leanne Dinsdale

Two Barlickers turned out in the sweltering conditions to take part in this race:

10 Eddie Simpson (1st V45)
67 Vicky Holgate (2nd W40)

Lucas Payne was over in the Isle of Wight and he turned out for the local Park Run.  It was very hot and quite a convoluted hilly course, but he says that the organisation was very impressive with places for kit, car keys etc.

4 Lucas Payne 19:05

29 David Cockell 23:22
131 Susan Hird 31:14

4 Lee Edwards 20:30 

The senior race was split into and A and a B race.   In the A race Jacob Boyle finished 4th in a super fast race.  GB international Jonny Mellor came home 1st in 14.27.  Jacob was 1st Barlicker in 15.34.  Julian Hood had a solid run finishing with a Time of 16.22.

In the B race race Andrew Chew finished 2nd behind Martin Hall of Otley AC.  Rachel Villiers ran another PB and is coming ever closer to running sub 19:00. 

1 Jacob Boyle 16:15 New PB
3 James Tingle 18:28
35 Peter Maher 22:04 New PB

Report by Terry Lonergan

I generally do a gentle 3 miler the day before a race. Yesterday, as more hardy folk, prepared to battle up the Weets as the rain continued the lash down, I shuffled along the sodden canal at a pace well over 10 minute per mile; thinking tomorrow at the CATFORTH 10k I'll need to be doing 2 minutes per mile better!
The only person I saw gave me no encouragement. Merely, saying, "Take it easy, old timer!" Cheeky bugger, I thought.
As long as you're prepared to put a number on a vest and the adrenaline kicks in "taking it easy" is not really an option, is it? We chase times, some even PBs, or on day's like today we combat the elements and chase fast starters from half way.

Report by Stephen Chew

Twenty three hardy souls made the trip North, on the Barlick bus, to one of the toughest midweek races on the calendar. Plus Paul Elcock, John Boothman and Katie Towers drove up themselves. The first incident of note was the smells emanating from the bowels of Bob Jackson's hound. The wall of Pedigree chum like smells was incessant. As we drew close Jock was given the task of looking after the beast. Then it had a s*#t. Screw thrust a dog bag into the big man's hand and told him to take care of his responsibilities. Jock did, only the bag didn't meaning his chubby fingers pierced through and went straight into it. Oh dear, I've not seen someone feel as sorry for themselves since Pete Jackson DNF'd at Widdop after 100 yards.
