In order to enhance ARR resources in the event of a critical emergency situation ever arising during our club night training group runs. We have been offered the support of ‘Heartstart’ first responders to conduct a 2 hour demonstration course that when needed can be of vital help to all our runners.

Hence we are seeking ARR member volunteers that wish to attend the course. Ideally two or three people from each training group is required.

Please enter names on the list situated on our notice board at Wilsons.

We will look to arrange a venue and time, outside normal working hours.

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

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.

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
