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

Des Walkden achieved a new pb of 20:45, which he is quite pleased about, having run in the Burnley Lions 10K the previous evening.

The final results are now out and it turns out that Barlick Fell Runners finished in 13th place, ahead of many of the established clubs. 

Well done to all concerned, especially to Gary Bradley who stepped in at the very last minute to cover an illness.

Those of us in our advancing years can remember when the present Cumbria was Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire.  Each one hosted at least one of the Lakes highest peaks.  This race visits each of the old counties and makes its way to the top of their respective peaks, Sca Fell Pike, Helvellyn and Coniston Old Man.  This involves a race distance of 37 miles and an ascent of over 10,000 ft.  Andy Hirst loves the Lake District and this sort of race. You have to run it in pairs and he normally teams up with Pete Jackson.  This year, Pete was injured and he therefore joined up Simon Franklin who had also lost his partner through injury.  Below is a link to Andy's account of the day.  For anyone who knows the Lake District, Andy's graphic descriptions take you round those fells and valleys and as you read through it, you realise the magnitude of the challenge that this race represents.

There is also a link to Simon's account who has written his it from the stand point of someone for whom this was his first experience of this race.

Andy's Report
