Best result of the season so far from our ladies cross country team in the Red Rose League on Saturday at Bolton. They finishes 2nd overall in the Senior Race and easily won the Veterans Race. With only one race remaining look favorites to re-gain the trophy they won last year.  Well done girls…

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
