Are you a Marathon Runner? Do you fancy a free Physiological test? Which includes: VO2 Max test; Running Economy; Lactate Threshold determination; Body Composition Scan; Pulmonary Function testing; and Allergy testing. This is the sort of analysis carried out on Olympic Athletes and Professional Footballers, and normally costs in excess of £500. Middlesex University are offering free testing in exchange for your participation in a current Research Study into Running Recovery. Briefly, you have to be able to run a full 26.2 mile marathon around one of their campus sites within 4hrs 30, and be a Male, aged under 50.  You’ll be tested before the run, and for 3 days afterwards. Each test (not including the Marathon) is upto 90 mins long. There’s free accommodation for those requiring it. They are currently evaluating QPR’s squad ahead of pre-season training. I'm booked in for 7th-10th Aug. Some July dates are still available.

If you're interested please email:

Hi Everyone,

Just a personal thank you to Graham & Carole Morris for yet again, an outstandingly well organised day on the BMW relay. The organisation of this event (and the other relays ) is no mean feat. 

A simply outstanding contribution to ARR, well done, and much appreciated.

Just a reminder – Wilsons Athletics Track is available to us every Thursday, 5:30pm to 6:30pm. We have a number of runners of all abilities currently using this facility for track sessions. Everyone is welcome! Speedwork doesn’t just make you run faster, it makes you more comfortable at all speeds and increases your fitness. Remember to ‘sign in’ & pay £2 to Hyndburn Athletics in the office next to the changing rooms.

Just a reminder to all our runners regarding the rule on club vests.
When competing in any race or event as an attached member of Accrington Road Runners; 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. 
Club vest are available from Colette
