Autumn/Winter- Club Training Nights

Important Road Safety Notice

As a UKA affilliated Road Running Club we should be setting an example by wearing hi-viz reflective running kit, or failing that, bright colour clothing. We should all be acutely aware of the major importance of being highly visible to road vehicles on the approaching dark winter nights. Please make every effort to comply with this request - its for your own safety and the safety of other runners in your training group. Also may I remind everyone training with our Club that it is strictly forbidden to run wearing ear phones. Thank you for your co-operation.

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.
