Advance notice of suitable footwear for Tues off-road club training nights

Starting after the 'clocks change' we will switch from road to off road routes on training nights

Runners new to the club (mainly groups 3 and 4) should ensure they wear TRAIL SHOES

Trail shoes are waterproof and are designed for safe traction in slippery conditions

'Off road running' in a road shoe can be an accident waiting to happen !

For your health and safety please follow this advice

For those new to ARR, and a reminder to everyone else: on Thursdays - beside the Track Sessions at Wilsons - a number of Group 2 & Group 3 runners will be running from Hyndburn Sports Centre, 6:30 start. This is open to anyone, and will continue every Thursday until the clocks 'go forward' at the end of March.

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.
