It’s that time again when we need to decide on our teams for the Red Rose Cross Country League. If you want to run please let Graham know (before end of Sept) he will arrange race numbers. No entries on the day. We need at least 4 runners for the ladies’ race and 6 for the men’s race. See dates below. I am sure for those that ran last year can confirm it’s a good afternoon and great club event. All abilities welcome. The first race in Leigh is a good introduction to cross country, it’s really just a trail race and is always sunny.......

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 or Liam

About us Mid Lancs Cross Country BLACKPOOL 2011

So what brings you here then? You want to take up running, maybe you are already a runner with no affiliation, or you're just being nosey? No problem. Let's give you some details about ARR and what to expect.

Accrington Road Runners has been established for over 20 years and currently has membership in excess of 100 of all abilities. The club meets each Tuesday throughout the year at Wilson's Playing Fields in Clayton-le-Moors near Accrington, Lancashire where changing and shower facilities are available. Training runs begin at 6.30pm and are split into mixed abilities so no-one is left struggling or finds themselves out of their depth.

If it's your first venture into running it is a good idea to get yourself into some sort of shape before coming down so that you can run for about 60 minutes at a modest pace. Don't forget though, no one gets left behind. Winter runs are obviously confined to pounding the streets around Hynburn and routes are varied each time to maintain interest .Summer runs are usually off the road. It could be Whalley Nab or a canal run, etc. the choice is endless.

If your would like to join ARR, then you can either pay online by clicking on this link or you can download and complete the application form (66KB).

Race relays Mid Lancs Cross Country BLACKPOOL 2011

ARR also take part in club events such as the Pennlne Way relay, Calderdale relay and Bradford Millenium relay. We also have our own race competitions throughout the year (see 'Points Races' in our club news section) Through the summer months we have several 'social runs' at various locations in Hyndburn/Ribble valley or other outlying areas. Last year these runs were very popular with 40-50 runners at some.

What to wear

Along with the correct running gear you'll also need a pretty thick skin...leg pulling is not uncommon amongst runners. Mind you, you probably already have a sense of humour to even contemplate all this anyway!

A letter from one of our members Mid Lancs Cross Country BLACKPOOL 2011

Marathon Training,
Could you please on my behalf say a big THANK YOU to all Accrington Road Runners who have not only helped me complete one marathon but who are now out slogging the streets with me and taking it in turns to help me achieve another marathon. Special thanks to Sue Pickup, Joanne Bramley and Jill McFadden for their support, guidance and most of all friendship, I only hope I can return the favours. I was misguided in the past and joined C-L-M Harriers but the year 2000 became a turning Mid Lancs Cross Country BLACKPOOL 2011 point for me when I joined A.R.R. I have never known a club be so friendly and so supportive, so once again thanks! You have given me lots to look forward to, club runs, Thursday runs with the girls, Sunday long runs, races and social evenings (which we don't have enough of) and of course the 'girlie nights out' which take time to recover from! I am proud to be a member of the club and can't imagine life without you all.

M.Hartley.
