The clock is running down to this weekend's eagerly anticipated 2017 Virgin London Marathon. As always, our thoughts and best wishes go out to our members that are running this year. Also we will be represented with ARR runners at the Blackpool Marathon on the same day. Good luck to you all and return safe and sound ! proudly wearing your medals.

Well done to Catherine Derbyshire, whose fund-raising Woodlands 5K event yesterday at Wilson’s in Clayton, raised a very impressive £1,045.00 for Pancreatic Cancer UK! Catherine & her cousin Julie who are both running the London Marathon next Sunday have now raised £2,246.00 in total. Catherine would like to thank all the ARR members who helped out yesterday, and especially Norman from Hyndburn Athletics.

Hyndburn Athletic Club have asked that I remind our Tuesday training night runners not to congregate in close proximity to the pavilion front entrance prior to our runs commencing. This request also includes the area below the viewing window which has to be kept clear as a public walkway. Therefore,on arrival, will all our running groups please move further along the concourse, starting from this week. Thanks everyone.

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.

Just a reminder to all our runners regarding the rule on club vests.
When competing in any race or event as an attached member of Accrington Road Runners; 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.
