Another fantastic result today from our ladies in the Northern Cross Country Championships’; they finished 10th overall from over 40 clubs based all over the North of England. They had to endure extremely bad conditions including hail and high winds. Lucky for us they are tough girls and all completed the event. Well done to Emma, Debbie, Julia & Lisa.

It is noted from our records there are a number of members that have not paid their subscriptions for 2015/16, these were due in October 2015.

We hope this is an oversight and you will continue to be a member of Accrington Road Runners by completing the membership form (download a copy from the website) and returning it together with your payment of £30.

 If however you do not intend to renew your membership, please inform a committee member, so we can update UK Athletics and our records.

Until this is paid please dont enter races as an attached runner to Accrington Road Runners.

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
