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

    Men win the team prize

    Dan Mills had a cracking run to finish third  in this race.  Luckily, he was not alone, with another three team mates also putting in great performances to finish in the top ten.  No one else had this strength in depth and the club came away with the team prize.

  • Glentress Half Marathon - 17 November 2018

    Bronte Way -28 October 2018

    It was a sunny, but cold day that greeted the runners for this linear run from Wycoller to Haworth and it was good to see so many Barlickers out there, including a few faces who have not been racing for a while.

    First back for Barlick was David Mirfield in 5th place and for his comeback race after a period of injury, Andy Collins had a good run to finish in the top twenty.

    His wife led the Barlick ladies home, just managing to keep in front of Jen Hird.  Nicola Muller was going well until she went over on her ankle and had to get a lift to the finish from Ponden.

  • Bruges marathon - 21 October 2018

    Two weeks ago, Ian Livesey recorded a 2 hour 31 minute time in the Chester Marathon.  Most people would have accepted that and had a recovery period before embarking on their next challenge.  Not so Ian.  Two weeks after one marathon, he entered another.

    Another issue was that on his visit to Bruges, he got deviated from concentrating on running by beer tasting and goodness knows what else.  The result was a time that did not reflect his true capabilities.  

    But we are amateur runners and maybe a fun weekend in Bruges, coupled with a bit of a run out, was a great break from every day living.  So well done Ian.  Two marathons in two weeks coupled with a a bit of time out on the town sounds like a great work / life balance.

  • Race to the Castle 10K - 21 October 2018

    The Race to the Castle 10km is a new race which saw runners charging to Lancaster Castle and completing a loop around the battlements before heading for home. Given that and the fact that there were steps up to the castle, this was not a PB course. The course was wet and slippery with a few climbs, but our girls coped well, with Emma Bailey winning the ladies race and Cloey Mason finishing fist LV45.

  • FRA Relays - 20 October 2018

    Ambleside were the hosts for this year's relay event in the idyllic town of Grasmere. Over 1,400 runners descended on the sleepy town to partake in the 4 leg Fell relay. For those who aren’t familiar with the format, every year, Leg 1 is a solo leg with a defined/flagged route, Leg 2 is a pairs leg with a defined/flagged route, Leg 3 is a navigational Leg where runners are given a map with a series of check points on as they start their leg and are then expected to navigate their way between these, finally there is Leg 4 which is a solo leg with a defined/flagged route.

    On the day BFR entered a ladies team, men’s A & B team and also an MV40 team. Leg 1 saw Jon Cleaver lead in the men, closely followed by Tim Chadwick and Virgil Barton with Jacqueline Collins representing the ladies.

    Leg 2 saw Paula & Heather head out up the hill along with James Austin & Zac Kaye for the B team and the 2 Dave’s (Poole & Smurf) for the A team. It’s worth mentioning that the 2 Dave’s had a great leg coming in 22nd fastest from 248 teams - beating teams such as Ribble Valley. Great run!

    Leg 3 (the dreaded Nav!)......Andy B and Nick T got round nice and cleanly for the A team, both Dave Halliday and Pete Beresford were 2nd fastest for BFR with a sub 2 hour run, then an AMAZING run from Vic Peel and Jen Hird saw the ladies come home just over 2 hours and 14th in the female open category....brilliant! Now for the bad news.....Pete Jackson and Gary "Navigational Expert" Bradley were the last BFR team home and got suitably ribbed by their team mates!

    Leg 4 was the quickest leg of the day, we had Stephen Shorrocks for the vets, Emma Taylor for the ladies, Nicolas Kendall for the B team and Like Maude for the A team. Notably Emma was 20th in the female category and Luke was 15th in the Male open category - 2 top quality runs!

    So, in summary, a great club day with BFR mixing it up with the top end as usual.  Next year will be better still!
