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

The Manchester Marathon hasn't got a very good track record, in fact now it hasn't any from 2013, 2014 or 2015! Due to a mis-measuring of the course (by 380 metres), all records from those years have been expunged by UK Athletics. As of 18th April, the times will still be shown on an athlete's record, but can no longer be accepted for PBs  surprise

Everyone is welcome! Speedwork doesn’t just make you run faster, it makes you more comfortable at all speeds and increases your fitness.

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
