Treasure Hunt / Summer Run from Holmes Mill, Clitheroe Tue 24th April. Should be a great night. Lots of fun, great route & prizes! Teams of two or more (max 5). Sort your own teams in advance or on the night. Start time is flexible as people will set off in their groups with an interval before the next group. Therefore, once you've collected your instructions you can start any time you want after 6:10 but the aim is to have everyone running by 6:50ish. If you can arrive early, please do. PLEASE ORDER YOUR FOOD BEFORE YOU SET OFF. Looking forward to it! David

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.

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

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
