Thanks to all those runners that turned up tonight for our Run and Eat at Bowland Brewery, Clitheroe.

At 6pm the weather was atrocious , having to drive through a windswept prolonged very heavy rainstorm, which may possibly, have put some members off making the journey. Thankfully, the fierce gale eased off  when our runs got underway.

This is an highly impressive large capacity new venue for good food and drink, and I would like to think it may eventually receive a return ARR visit  at some stage in the future, perhaps for an off road run next time.

Congratulations to Tom Battrick on being voted Runner of the Month for January. Now in his 60th year he still remains one of our most enthusiastic and supportive member. He rarely misses our Tuesday club night or the Thursday Track sessions and is the main motivator for the Saturday morning long runs. He competed in our last two club races  Ribble Valley & East Lancs Hospice improving his times on last year.

Well done Tom.

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. 
Club vest are available from Colette
