I’ve been asked by a few members if we could sort out a points race where we all go by minibus or coach and stay for a couple of drinks after and return. How many would be interested in doing this for the Yarrow Valley River Splash Race on the 16th September. Please can you let me know your thoughts?(message will expire on Sat 15/Sep/2018).

In the interest of fairness and on the advice of graham . I am making an alteration to the handicap times given to Michelle and Andrew in their forth coming tie. NEW TIMES Michelle baker 24.45 Andrew fiegel 23.00 . I will look at all the other times on conclusion of the first round but safe to say David mallaby s rating will be slashed . Sorry I was so far out in the first instance(message will expire on Wed 08/Aug/2018).

I'm entering a team to the It's a Knockout at Enfield cricket club again this year. With enough interest it may be possible to have 2 teams this year as a few people missed out last year.This takes place on the August bank holiday Monday (27th) so we should have decent weather. Everyone had a great time last year and it was a fantastic team bonding afternoon so I hope more people can get involved this time.Let me know at club on Tuesday evenings or message me on Facebook if anyone's interested.(message will expire on Tue 28/Aug/2018).

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 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

Race the train

6 Dalemain checkpoint 8 for The 100

Every August we have a camping weekend in Wales (tent or caravan). This also includes "racing trains".

We are referring to "Race the Train" event which is a unique race that covers a 14 mile "multi terrain" route alongside the Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn with runners trying to beat the train. The event regularly attracts over 1000 runners including many from abroad.

The race is classed as one of the top 10 "must do" events in the UK by "Runners World".

Spectators are welcome and can enjoy watching the race by travelling on the train and shouting encouragement as it passes the runners.

There are alternative races 10K or 5 mile race for those that don't fancy the full distance and also children's races. Everyone welcome family (children) and friends.

The event is followed by a fantastic presentation and entertainment in a large marquee in the grounds of the school. Great music, good company.

This was introduced to our club by Peter Blackledge, he has completed in this race since 2001.

With the race being on Saturday you have the choice to travel on the day of the race or stay over on Friday night. You will need to enter the race yourself but we provisionally booked a number of pitches at a campsite. If you would like us to book you a "pitch" please let us know your requirements, number of nights and how many tents etc.
