If any members would like to volunteer then get in touch with me and ill pass your name on. They have also asked if we can go down on Saturday 21st October at 9am to run the first Parkrun! Lets show our supoport for our new local Parkrun.

Accrington 10k Marshal Request. Our annual 10k race is coming up on Sunday 29th October. For those who do not know; as members we are required to marshal the route and therefore cannot enter the race unless you can find a non member to volunteer on your behalf. However, I am working on outsourcing some of the less significant marshal points which should create a limited amount of entries for members to run the race. Please look out for updates on this in the coming weeks.All proceeds of the race will be going to The East Lancs Hospice and this race could not go ahead without members being kind enough to give up their free time. Please can members contact Michele Baker (Head Marshal) to offer their support.Thanks in advance.(message will expire on Mon 30/Oct/2017).

Also on dark nights, will group leaders ensure no one in their group sets off running again until everyone present in the group has safely crossed the roads on the training route. Thank you for your co-operation.
