Free entry on the day and creme egg to all runners! Now we have got your attention, anyone interested in doing a Fell Race: Liver Hill Fell Race, Marl Pitts, Rawtenstall. This is not in our championship but a good race to try.Its not too difficult or too serious, ideal for your first. Hopefully many from our club will be competing so you won't be on your own. We can meet at Wilsons 5:45pm and travel together or meet at the race (start 6:45). Its on a Tuesday so there is no excuse. Go on, try it you may really enjoy it. Off road shoes required, maybe if its a bad night give it a miss, you don't want to be put off!

Advance notice of suitable footwear for Tues off-road club training nights

Starting after the 'clocks change' we will switch from road to off road routes on training nights

Runners new to the club (mainly groups 3 and 4) should ensure they wear TRAIL SHOES

Trail shoes are waterproof and are designed for safe traction in slippery conditions

'Off road running' in a road shoe can be an accident waiting to happen !

For your health and safety please follow this advice

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
