Our handicap race is on Tuesday 11th August. Last year it was very successful with 50 of our runners taking part. (see Club Events on our website for further details). Please could you confirm if you will be running this year by sending an e-mail (accringtonroadrunners@hotmail.co.uk) including your 10k time and whether staying for food (meat or veggie). Or contact Graham with your details. For those that don’t want to run we need a few volunteers to help run the event.

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
