PENDLETON FELL RACE - CANCELLED

 

Hi all - for anyone who hasn't seen, next Saturday's points race has been cancelled by the organisers.

Essentially due to the ongoing maintenance around Pendle road heading out onto the A59 from Clitheroe.

More information to follow from ARR in terms of a new fell points race being added.

Full article can be found on Clayton's website.

Apologies!

Fred

Ron Hill's 80th birthday 5k takes place on the evening of Tuesday 25th September from the Cock & Magpie Pub at Whitworth OL12 8BJ.
It is being organised again by Andy O'Sullivan, and it would be great to see some ARR there in support of Ron.

The race is £11.50 but includes a commemorative mug to all finishers and apparently may be televised live!

https://bookitzone.com/andrew_o_sullivan/cv2FFX for booking. Will likely fill up before the race. Cheers!

I'm entering a team to the It's a Knockout at Enfield cricket club again this year. With enough interest it may be possible to have 2 teams this year as a few people missed out last year.This takes place on the August bank holiday Monday (27th) so we should have decent weather. Everyone had a great time last year and it was a fantastic team bonding afternoon so I hope more people can get involved this time.Let me know at club on Tuesday evenings or message me on Facebook if anyone's interested.(message will expire on Tue 28/Aug/2018).

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.
