Congratulations to Manny Carauna for finally winning an award, namely the ARR Group 3 inaugural 'Speedy Gonzales' Training Trophy, despite many yellow card cautions for overtaking the group run leader on training nights. If he doesnt learn his lesson he will be promoted to run with the advanced group ! He is delighted to have won his first ARR cup, after many years of trying. Now (seriously) Manny will you please set an example and follow club rules !!

It is only eight weeks from our annual team event “Bradford Millennium Relay” (28thJune). It is a fantastic event that is open to all members, the route distances range from 8 to 11 miles off road. See our web site for more information. (Links / Relays / Bradford). Last year we had 40 runners competing in four teams, everyone had a great day.

The relay requires runners to compete in pairs........ maybe ask another member of the club (of equal ability) and run together; alternatively you can enter individually and we can choose you a partner. Also advise on which of the 5 legs you would prefer and we will try and accomodate you. Leg 1 starts at 8am.

Please let Graham know ASAP if you want to be part of the team.

Just a reminder – Wilsons Athletics Track is available to us every Thursday, 5:30pm to 6:30pm. We have a number of runners of all abilities currently using this facility for track sessions. Everyone is welcome! Speedwork doesn’t just make you run faster, it makes you more comfortable at all speeds and increases your fitness. Remember to ‘sign in’ & pay £2 to Hyndburn Athletics in the office next to the changing rooms.

Just a reminder to all our runners regarding the rule on club vests.
When competing in any race or event as an attached member of Accrington Road Runners; it is expected you wear (and display) a club vest.
This is particularly important when representing the club in team events and in our club races.
The club vest helps advertise and promote the club gives us a presence in races.
