Accrington 10k Marshal Request. Our annual 10k race is coming up on Sunday 29th October. For those who do not know; as members we are required to marshal the route and therefore cannot enter the race unless you can find a non member to volunteer on your behalf. However, I am working on outsourcing some of the less significant marshal points which should create a limited amount of entries for members to run the race. Please look out for updates on this in the coming weeks.All proceeds of the race will be going to The East Lancs Hospice and this race could not go ahead without members being kind enough to give up their free time. Please can members contact Michele Baker (Head Marshal) to offer their support.Thanks in advance.(message will expire on Mon 30/Oct/2017).

A selfless act by David Sagar in a recent Fell Race.... a true sportsman. Well done David, ARR should be proud of you!

It appears that David stopped during the race to help an injured runner... and at the expense of his position in the race.  See F/book for more details

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

Handicap Race

Award_Winners_2012
Event
Handicap Race followed by meal and prizes. The route will follow The Ribble Valley 10k course. Runners will be set off at different times (slower runners first) this will create an exciting race with all competitors finishing about the same time. With lots of prizes and everyone having an equal chance of winning, it should create a good event. Although we hope members will run and join us for food afterwards, there is no problem just to run and not bother with the food.
Venue
Roefield Leisure Centre, Clitheroe followed by presentation and food at The Edisford Bridge Pub.
Cost
Chris Walton - Mens Champion No charge for this event, but members will have to pay for their own food and drink.
Format
Each runner will submit their estimated race time for this 10k course. This time should be their best 10k time OR a fair time that reflects the runner's current form. The time should be 'rounded' down to the nearest 30 seconds. (e.g. 42:39 = 42:30). Each runner will set off at different times hopefully creating an exciting finish. In theory everyone has an equal chance of wining if they run to their usual race pace.
Prizes
Lots of prizes including 'booby' prize for the runner that finishes far faster than their estimated time, not a prize you want to win, so be fair with your time!!! Although you can just turn up on the day, it would help if you could let me know beforehand and your estimated time. It is important you let me know whether you are joining us for food, so we con confirm numbers with the caterer.
