Hyndburn – Park Run

We have been asked by parkrun would we be willing to “take over” the 22nd February run. This would include everything from the time keeping to the marshalling of the route. We estimate 20 to 25 of our members would be needed to make sure everything is covered.

Since this event started in 2017, we have had 77 of our members complete almost 1000 runs, more than any other club……………. It is only fair we do our share and give the organisers a day off.

Let’s show our support for parkrun and turn up in large numbers to make it a fantastic run.

If available please contact Paul or Karen Jackson, or any member of the committee.

Our first 2 x Club Road Races have both been "sell out" events with some of our members missing out on a race number. Lostock 6 mile is on 23rd Feb this is also a popular race. Dont leave it too late and enter early, so we dont have any members missing the race.

Race the train

Great_Hambledon_Hill_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.
