First Summer Run 2018 – Treasure Hunt Special – Tuesday April 24th Holmes Mill, Clitheroe BB7 1EB

It will be our first Summer run for 2018 and we plan to do something a little different.  David Mallaby has kindly organised a Treasure Hunt Run! - there will be prizes!!!  Please arrive for 6.30pm as we will be organising teams for a 6.45pm start.

If you feel you are going to struggle to get there for 6.30pm but would like to take part please let David Mallaby or Damian Fletcher know in advance to help plan the teams.

We have booked tables after the run for food.  If you are interested in staying for food after please arrive early (before 6.30pm) as you will need to order behind the bar.

There will be a mixture of trail, road and off road running so please bring appropriate footwear.

As a reminder there will be no training run from Wilsons that night.

As a running club we need to introduce new things to keep everyone interested and help us improve. 


“The Mile” the iconic distance often neglected by runners, but a great test of speed and stamina. Your mile time can be used to predicate times in all the longer distances.


With this in mind would any of our Group Two runners be interested in arriving earlier this Tuesday to run a mile time trial on the track? We need to start the clock at 6.15 (Must be off the track by 6:25) so don’t be late. Group 3 & 4 don’t feel cheated you can run following weeks


Running a fast mile before the club run shouldn’t be a problem. it is an ideal warm up.


Just to confirm it is an individual time trial not a race. (Although we will all be on the track at the same time)

Please try and support the club.........Anyone up for it………’s only 4 laps,

Health and Safety Notice for Tuesday OFF ROAD training nights

Starting soon when the 'clocks change' be prepared to run 'off road' routes unless otherwise advised by your Group Leader.

The club recommend you wear Trail Shoes as they are waterproof and designed to provide good tread grip traction in muddy underfoot conditions

Wearing road shoes,when running 'off road,' can potentially be an accident waiting to happen

Just to let members know, the Burnley Half Marathon was cancelled due to the organisers failing to get the correct health and safety measures in place on time. We have changed the event to the Darwen Half that is on the same day. All points races for all 3 categories have now been selected and most are now available to view on here, this will be updated showing the full list very shortly. If anyone has any questions then please feel free to contact me.(message will expire on Fri 30/Mar/2018).

Well done to everyone who took part in the Blackburn Road Runners Winter Warmer.While I have your attention, Iíd just like to clarify a few racing rules...Today was a club points race. This means that it is a Ďraceí against your competitors, not with yourself! With all this in mind, for those who do not know (and there appears to be a few), itís first over the line that claims place. This is known as Gun Time. Chip Times are a great way of judging your own personal records but will not be compared against other runners when formalising results.For those that didnít know that, you may want to reconsider your starting position...The race begins on the start line 👍Results will expire on Wed 11/Apr/2018).

The mast race (race two in our trail race points events ) has been re scheduled for may 27 th . The race has been re opened so everyone who wants to enter it can now do so . The race does not clash with any other of our club races and will obviously be a wonderfull opertunaty to get a close up view of a t v transmission mast . Being may no doubt the weather will be scorching . A nice simple race 5 k up 5 k down . What' could be more pleasant on an early summers morning(message will expire on Mon 30/Apr/2018).

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 as a member of Accrington Road Runners in a race or event; 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 Vests are available from Colette
