Hi Everyone,

Just a personal thank you to Graham & Carole Morris for yet again, an outstandingly well organised day on the BMW relay. The organisation of this event (and the other relays ) is no mean feat. 

A simply outstanding contribution to ARR, well done, and much appreciated.

Parking Arrangements: Would all Accrington Road Runners please note that for our Tuesday & Thursday training sessions we should only use the lower car park. If this is full please park in the surrounding roads. The higher car park is for Hyndburn Athletics only.

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
