Well done to all our Marathoners in London!  Must praise Colette though... all that training and expense of going to London, yet she stopped (at the risk of adversely affecting her time), to help a fellow runner in trouble! Colette I salute you... a most admiral gesture! You did Accy Road Runners proud

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.
