Parkrun Handicap 2019

A message from Liam:

 

After the relative success of last years inaugural event we are going to stage this competition again in 2019 . The rules of the comp are as follows 
Each entrant will be allocated a time . This will be based on the runners current p b at parkrun or it will be an informed calculation of your current form . So as an example 
                        Steve cramm 22.40   Versus   Paula Radcliffe 21.50  
So Steve finishes the parkrun in 22.45 ( - 5 secs on his allocated time ) 
Paula finishes in 21.49 ( + 1 second on her allocated time ) 
Therefore Paula would win the tie by 6 seconds 
This year , there will be an opportunity for anyone who gets knocked out in the first round to race again . So everyone who enters will get at least two runs ( if they want to ) 
We have loads more time this year , compared to last years event , so we are going to try to have a parkrun handicap first round day on the 2 nd Feb ( day before winter warmer ) with the backstop of every Saturday in February for those unable to make that date 
Anyone wishing to enter please comment on the Facebook entry or speak to Liam moden 
N b unfortunately Steve and Paula are not joining our club their names were used for example purposes only 
Thanks liam

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.

Race the train

18

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.
