Event post by: Paul Calverley
Category: Club races

Event Time: 11:00
Who's invited?: All are welcome
Details: Club Road Race No.6

Tue 08/Aug/17 Handicap Race
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 8th 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 runner’s 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.

Although you can just turn up on the day it would be a great help if you can let Graham know beforehand if you’re 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!!!

Sat 19/Aug/17 Race the Train
Event post by: Graham Morris
Category: Social events
Event Venue: North Wales
Event Time: 1pm
Who's invited?: All are welcome
Details: This fantastic event attracts over 1000 runners. The main race follows a 14 mile “multi terrain” route alongside Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn with runners trying to beat the train. Spectators are welcome and can enjoy watching the race by travelling on the train and shout encouragement as it passes the runners.
There is an alternative 10K race for those that don’t fancy the full distance.
The race is on Saturday 19th followed by prize giving and evening entertainment. It is your choice whether to travel on the day of the race, but ideally it would be good to stay over night Friday and Saturday night. With a number of our members having tents and caravans we could make it a camping weekend. There are plenty of B&B for those that don’t fancy a night under canvas. For those interested it is advised to enter the race early. We have provisionally booked a number of pitches at a campsite but not yet confirmed definite numbers. If you would like a pitch please let Graham know your requirements, number of nights and how many tents etc. It’s a great weekend with many of our runners competing so come and join us, all welcome…… More information
