Message from Registration Secretary

It is noted from our records that some members haven’t paid their subscriptions for 2017/18; they were due in October 2017.

We hope this is an oversight and you will continue to be a member of Accrington Road Runners by completing the membership form on this website below and returning it together with your payment before end of January 2018.

If however you do not intend to renew your membership, please inform a committee member, so our records can be updated and remove you from England Athletics list.

This Sunday, 21st January is The Mast Race our 2nd event of the season in our new “trail” category. Although the race is advertised as full, the organiser has very kindly offered Accrington Road Runners members some extra places due to it being part of our race series. These places are to be paid for and collected on the day. (Ask for Melissa on the registration desk). The only condition is that we don’t collect any finisher’s medals after the race. They have only ordered enough for the official race limit. Any questions or more information contact Graham.

3. Message posted by Michael Leeming on Tue 16/Jan/2018.

Delays have occured in assessing individual Runner of the Month awards because our Committee does not meet up on a monthly cycle. Therefore it has been decided we will replace the present format with a similar award covering the four seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn. This arrangement will allow our Committee more time to fully assess the merits of future award winners

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.

Race the train

SarahH (Photo by Martin Vernon)

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.
