Message from our Chairman

I would like to thank everybody for their support and congratulations on my recent awards, that includes my family who have had to have lots of patience over many years.

This also is a tremendous thank you to everyone at Barrow Runners over the past 35 years since we got the club off the ground.

As I said at the Presentation Evening you never consider the rewards you might get when you do something you have a passion for.
Not only that but this is a tribute to everyone at Barrow Runners who believed in me - that is something I will always remember.

I sometimes reflect on how far the club has come over the years, and the one thing that makes us stand out from the rest is probably our coaching staff and the variety of sessions.  Thank you coaches!

Runner of the Month

Runner of the month for February is Helen Taylor.

Helen Taylor started with the Barrow Beginners Group (Couch to 5K) in October 2016 and from day one has pushed herself as she wanted to improve her running. She continued after the New Year with the Advanced Beginners Group and has continued to push herself each week.  Helen has done many Park Runs achieving PBs each time and has also run a 10k race earlier this year. She has since joined Barrow Runners and now also comes on a Tuesday night where she started in Sue’s group. Helen is still pushing herself and before long will be moving up into Alison’s group. Helen is deserving of Runner of the Month as this typifies exactly what getting into running is all about.
If you have nominations for runner of the month please send through to by the end of the calendar month.  These then get discussed and voted on by the committee. 


Our club's annual general meeting will take place on Tuesday 21st March, 7.15pm in the Community Lounge, Humphrey Perkins School.

Please try to attend to input to how our club is run.

Note training will be earlier than usual at 6pm from Barrow.
