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.

(message will expire on Fri 21/Feb/2020).

Tue 11/Aug/20 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 Holmes Mill

Date Tuesday 11th 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!!!

There is an alternative 10K race for those that dont fancy the full distance.
The race is on Saturday 17th 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 dont 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. Its a great weekend with many of our runners competing so come and join us, all welcome.

Sun 08/Nov/20 Remembrance Windmill 10k
Event post by: Graham Morris
Category: Points race - road
Event Venue: Lytham St Annes
Event Time: 11.05am
Who's invited?: All Club Members Welcome
Details: 7th and final road race of our series.
A fast and flat course on the coastal front of Lytham, starting on Lytham Green next to the Windmill itself. A two minute silence is observed before the start of the race for Remembrance Sunday.

The event first ran in 2011 with 500 runners lining the route. It was a very memorable day with a respectful two minutes silence before the start, then runners set off taking in some great sights of this lovely town including the iconic Lytham Windmill. Due to the success and feedback from runners it is now an annual event. The 2019 event saw an entry of 2350, its capacity, so is now a very popular event. It is also very flat and certified as accurately measured by the Association of UK Course Measurers and licenced by UK Athletics.
Directions: ​Lytham Windmill, Lytham St Annes, FY8 5LD
