We will be taking over all the standard jobs - race director/time keepers/scanners, and also marshalling the course.

We need roughly 20-25 volunteers to help on the day, this can be yourselves but also friends and family, all welcome!

 

For anyone who wishes to help out and volunteer on the day please either comment on the facebook post or let me know on 07909941404! More information to follow nearer the event :)!!

It’s that time again when we need to decide on our teams for the Red Rose Cross Country League. If you want to run please let Graham know (before end of Sept) he will arrange race numbers. No entries on the day. We need at least 4 runners for the ladies race and 6 for the mens's race. See dates below. I am sure for those that ran last year can confirm its a good afternoon and great club event. All abilities welcome. The first race in Leigh is a good introduction to cross country, its really just a trail race and is always sunny.......

 13th Oct – Leigh

10th Nov – Bolton

17th Nov – Rossendale

1st Dec – Todmorden

Ron Hill's 80th birthday 5k takes place on the evening of Tuesday 25th September from the Cock & Magpie Pub at Whitworth OL12 8BJ.
It is being organised again by Andy O'Sullivan, and it would be great to see some ARR there in support of Ron.

The race is £11.50 but includes a commemorative mug to all finishers and apparently may be televised live!

https://bookitzone.com/andrew_o_sullivan/cv2FFX for booking. Will likely fill up before the race. Cheers!

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

Ladies Team

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.
