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.

South_Pennine_24 - Certificate

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.
