To All Members

 

I hope you are keeping well in these most unusual of times, and i hope most importantly that you are managing to keep running (and sane) as much as possible! 

 

We think as a committee that it is important to keep you all informed with the latest goings on in the running community and also to ensure that you know we are keeping up to date with all Government policy. We know that everyone wants to get back to run club activities as soon as it is safe to do so, and we will continue to ensure that that happens as soon as it can! 

 

The latest Government guidelines have led UK Athletics to revise their statement from early May 2020 to state the following:

"You may meet with FIVE other people from outside your household to exercise outdoors, whilst following social distancing guidelines. This means that if you do take part in such an activity YOU MUST remain at least 2 metres apart AT ALL TIMES from those outside your household".

 

Unfortunately the UKA's guidance continues to be that all running club activities remain suspended until further notice. 
Again i must state that we will continue to monitor this situation closely and provide updates whenever possible going forward.

 

I also want to say a big congratulations and well done for all those taking part in the ARR bingo that was posted on the Facebook page. This led to some very amusing and inspiring videos and photos. A very well done especially to all those who completed the full Bingo card - we will have some prizes ready for when we come back. 

 

For now the only thing left to say is that we hope you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy, and remember to talk to your fellow members to keep in touch, even if you aren't meeting up to run!

 

All the best,

Fred - on behalf of the Accrington Road Runners Committee.

South_Pennine_24 - Torside Res

Due to the nature of the race and time of year, there are strict rules that have to be adhered to. Teams have been disqualified for not following these rules.

  1. It is mandatory that every competitor must wear or carry windproof (preferably waterproof) whole body cover i.e.: cagoule and over trousers appropriate for the weather conditions. Hat and gloves are also recommended. Map of the course, compass and whistle are also to be carried. The above items are usually carried in a "bum bag" which must not be passed on to the next runner at leg changeovers. Competitors must make sure they are at the start of their leg in sufficient time for the kit checks to be carried out. (See enclosed - times)
  2. The official route must be followed; teams will be disqualified if short cuts are taken. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the route before the event (see enclosed - routes). Please arrange with your partner to reccie your leg.
  3. Pairs should run together were possible, but must be together when entering the changeover points.
  4. A team vest or (club colours - yellow) must be worn with the team number on the front. This will assist the officials at changeover.
  5. The Sportident timing system will be used on the event. A "dibber" will be carried by one team member who will "check in" after the leg by placing the "dibber" in a control box and then pass it to the outgoing team. If this "dibber" is lost the team will be disqualified.
  6. Obey the Countryside Code, don't leave litter, close gates, (All gates MUST be closed; teams not doing so will be instantly disqualified). Fields are not to be used as toilets and use appropriate areas when changing. Car parking will be a problem - please park sensibly.
