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

Longridge 7 2010
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.
Roefield Leisure Centre, Clitheroe followed by presentation and food at The Edisford Bridge Pub.
manchester_xc_relays No charge for this event, but members will have to pay for their own food and drink.
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.
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.
