As it is the 30th Anniversary of ARR we are hoping to take a group photograph of everyone that turns up for next Tuesday's Summer Run from the Peel Park Pub, Accrington, providing the weather is OK.

Please wear ARR vests if possible for the photograph.

If anyone has a high spec digital camera please bring it along with you.

Reminder:  that in September our Summer Run normally commences at 6.30pm

As always when running off road, please ensure you turn up in the correct footwear.
