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.

It was the usual battle at the front between Rob Hope and Ted Mason, with Rob once again running out the winner.  Jimmy Craig led home the Barlickers  and was just pipped to third place by Mark McGoldrick.  The Barlickers finished as follows:

4 Jimmy Craig 8:38
7 Nick Treitl 9:12
10 Luke Maude 9:34
34 John Boothman 11:40
58 Craig Child 13:18

Lucas and Kathryn Payne went to Guernsey to take part in this marathon.  The winner was the Kenyan, Reuben Chumba in 2:28:39.

Lucas was half way in a time of 1:25, but then got cramp resulting in him having to jog a bit and walk a bit.   He still finished in 7th position in a time of 3:13:30.

Kathryn took part in the marathon relay, where teams of two run a half marathon each.  Her all female team, the Pinot Grigios, finished in a time of 3:57:44 and were 11th overall.  This is Kathryn's first half marathon, which she completed with very little training.

Jimmy Craig finished 2nd in this race to Allan Bush (Norman's son).  There are no times for this race.  This is a traditional Dales fell race and it used to be common for such races to be held without timing them.  This is probably one of the few left that still do this.  The positions for the Barlickers were:

2 Jimmy Craig
5 Shaun Chew
14 Michael Thistlethwaite

An awesome performance from  Matt Lalor saw him set a new course record and win this race in 1:11:19, beating second place by 6 minutes.

3 Julian Hood 57:50
17 Andy Berry 1:03:50
50 Des Walkden 1:11:15

In this race, Ted Mason is running in his own backyard and every year, he likes to show any offcumdens who dominates the area.  And so it was again this year that Ted ran out a very clear winner.

The Barlickers finished as follows:

6 Nick Treitl 17:03
55 Andy Berry 21:52
97 Derek Walkden 24:47
107 Emma Bailey 27:28
116 Richard Treitl 31:13
123 Gary Bailey 45:24

Barlick were 6th team.
