I think it’s fair to say that the Presentation Night and Christmas Party was a huge success, with some worthy winners. There are some unsung heroes who deserve mention for ensuring these events go ahead. Thanks to Dave Mallaby, Michele Baker, Michael Leeming and Graham Morris in particularly for their contributions, plus anyone else who I haven’t mentioned. In addition, while I’m here, thanks to all that nominated me for the prestigious David Graham Award. Highly unexpected but very much appreciated. Thank you, Neil(message will expire on Wed 26/Dec/2018).

Just a reminder to all our runners regarding the rule on club vests.
When competing as a member of Accrington Road Runners in a race or event; 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 Vests are available from Colette
