RACE AMENDMENT - Blackpool Beach 10k

Hi all - very sorry but i can now confirm this race is taking place on Sunday 26th May, NOT the 12th as originally advertised. Unfortunately a rogue advertisement online has fooled us!

Apologies for the confusion, and for those i have told that it was on the 12th...Liam's post about the mini bus is also regarding the 26th May.

 

Cheers,

Fred

Treasure Hunt. This year's Treasure Hunt will kick off the Summer Runs. It will be from the Swan Hotel in Whalley Centre on Tuesday 30th April. Last year's event was a huge success despite the pouring rain - this year sunny warm weather has been ordered. More details to follow so watch this space but a great menu has been arranged, prizes on the night and loads of fun.

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.

Event post by: Graham Morris
Category: Social events
Event Venue: Roefield - Clitheroe
Event Time: 6:45
Who's invited?: All are welcome
Details: Summer Handicap Race followed by meal and presentation at The Edisford Bridge Pub.

Date Tuesday 6th August 6:45pm

Venue- Roefield Sports Centre Car Park, Clitheroe

The Route - Ribble Valley 10k course

Cost -No charge for this event, but members will have to pay for their own food and drink.

Format Each runner will submit their estimated race time for a 10k. This time should be their best 10k time OR a fair time that reflects the runners current form. The time should be rounded down to the nearest 30 seconds. (EG 42:49 = 42:30). Each runner will set off at different times (slower runners first)
EG Runners that would expect to finish the 10k in 60 minutes would set off at 6:45pm whereas those with an estimated time of 45 minutes would start at 7pm etc. hopefully creating an exciting finish. In theory everyone has an equal chance of wining if they run to their usual race pace.

Please support this event we need lots of runners to make it a success. Please run in your club vest.

Although you can just turn up on the day it would be a great help if you can let Graham know beforehand if you are running and also your estimated 10k time

There will be lots of prizes including a booby prize for the runner that finishes far faster than their estimated time, not a prize you want to win, so be fair with your time!!!
