Sorry to have to ask but I'm starting to panic a bit.I am running the Yorkshire Marathon next month (8th October) and usually my wife drives me there and we stay overnight with family. Now, the problem I have is that the DWP have taken her motobility car off us so I am now struggling for a lift.Is anyone running this as well who is travelling up on the day who I can scrounge a lift off? I will not only pay the full fuel cost but also a little extra for your troubles.I should be ok to make my own way home on public transport so would only need a lift there.Thanks in advance.Josh(message will expire on Sun 08/Oct/2017).

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).

A selfless act by David Sagar in a recent Fell Race.... a true sportsman. Well done David, ARR should be proud of you!

It appears that David stopped during the race to help an injured runner... and at the expense of his position in the race.  See F/book for more details

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.
