Christmas Do - By popular demand the Christmas do is at Great Harwood Golf Club again on FRIDAY 6th December. There will be a live band, a disco and the ever popular raffle. There is no need to make menu choices in advance as you will be able to choose on the night. The will be a wide variety of menu options including the traditional Christmas fare and of course vegitatrian options. The cost is £20 per head, which we think you will agree is very reasonable indeed - the event is subsidised from the Club. 

Please can we have numbers attending as soon as possible. Please make your payment in advance to either Michele Baker or myself. Here's looking forward to a great evening. Please inform of any food intolerances when booking.

David

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 £2.50 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 or Liam

About us Great_Hambledon_Hill_Race_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 Great_Hambledon_Hill_Race_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!

Novice Runners Information Paul Corrigan

Michael Leeming is currently our contact for people who would like to give running a go. If you have logged on to our web site for some inspiration and would like to know how to start running, for whatever reason, either to just 'get fit' or train for a marathon, then we at Accrington Road Runners would love to help you achieve your goal.

So, interested? Then why not email us, or just turn up at Wilson's Playing Fields on Tuesday.

A letter from one of our members pic 3

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 Graham 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.
