Well done to our Men’s Road Relay team that competed in the North of England Championships on Sunday in Birkenhead. We finished in our best ever time only 6 seconds out of our target time of 4 hours, not bad after 40 miles of racing.

Just a reminder to all our runners regarding the rule on club vests.
When competing as a member of Accrington Road Runners in a race or event; 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. 
Club Vests are available from Colette or Liam

Tuesday group runs

Bleasdale_circle_fell_race_2011

Thank you for your interest in our club.

  • We welcome new members and hope you find the forthcoming information useful.
  • We meet at Wilson's playing field (Woodland Drive, Clayton-le-Moors, BB5 5SD) at 6.20 p.m. for a 6.30 p.m. start.
  • Parking in the lower car park or if full, park on the local streets.
  • We generally have 5 running groups taking between 60 and 80 minutes to complete the session.

As a guide the following groups include runners that complete a standard road 10k (6 miles) race in the following times:

Group10k race time5k race time
Group 1a41 Minutes. (and under)20 Minutes (and under)
Group 1b41 to 45 Minutes21:30 Minutes (and under)
Group 245 to 50 Minutes24:00 Minutes (and under)
Group 350 to 57 Minutes27:00 Minutes (and under)
Group 457 Minutes (and over)

Please run in a group that is a fair reflection of your current fitness. Running in the wrong group will not only spoil your night but the rest of the runners in that group. Being in the wrong group applies to both too fast as well as being too slow.

Janet and Ian
Before the run
Please ensure that you:
  • Are physically able to complete the run at the pace and duration as indicated above.
  • Wear suitable clothing and correct footwear. On dark evenings wear some form of light coloured/fluorescent clothing. Winter runs are generally along the roads whereas summer running tends to be a mixture of on and off road.
  • Take adequate amounts of fluids leading up to the run. It is also sensible to carry a running bottle to replace lost fluids.
  • Have a light meal 2 hours before your run.
  • Do not bring dogs or wear MP3 players/headphones etc.
  • Warm up before the run and cool down after it.
  • Carry any required medication and notify your group leader of any injuries or medical conditions.
Sarah and Graham
During the run
As a club we advocate that all runners:
  • Stay within the group they are running with for the whole run.
  • Maintain a “chain” between the last and first runner throughout the run. You should have visual contact with the runner behind and in front of you at all times. Should you lose visual contact communicate this immediately along the chain to ensure that the whole group re-groups.
  • Shout any oncoming obstacles, obstructions or dangerous situations.
  • For group safety we advocate that runners “Loop back” at regular intervals. Within each group runners abilities will vary and it is therefore vital that the lead runners loop back. We have found the loop back method an effective and fair way to cater for all runners needs in the group. It is not good practice to wait for the back runners to catch up, as when they arrive the lead runners will be fully recovered and head off at a pace too intense. We therefore strongly advocate the loop back method at regular intervals.
  • Abide by the highway and country code where necessary.
  • Please be very vigilant when running along/crossing roads and tracks. It is very easy to become distracted when running in groups. Your safety should be your paramount concern.
  • Please notify the leader should you experience any problems or difficulties during the run.
Julia, Kim, David M & Martin Bland
End of run
It is best practice to cool down after a run. This should entail a gradual decrease in running pace at the end of your run (5 – 10 minutes) and static stretches. If you have any other queries or concerns please speak with one of our Tuesday group leaders.
