Well done to our Men’s Road Relay team that competed in the North of England Championships on Sunday in Birkenhead. We finished in our best ever time only 6 seconds out of our target time of 4 hours, not bad after 40 miles of racing.

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 or Liam

Race the train

Stoodley_fell_race_2011

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.
