1. Message posted by Peter Blackledge on Wed 11/Sep/2019.

Thanks for all the get well soon messages from everyone, I have to stop running for a while due to a minor heart problem but they seem to have spotted it soon enough, so thanks to the Doc who told me he had my results through so quickly, its jus t that when you get a call that results are so high and i should dial 999 right away it gets a bit scary.

Thanks to all at Blackburn hospital and the ambulance crew that whipped me from burnley to blackburn in such a short time.

Hopefully i should recover eventually with rest and modifications to the main arteries, via a stent, although the meds are mind blowing a recovery should follow.

I hope to be around a while yet and will contiue to shout at you all for now and even come to some races to watch and support when I am allowed to drive.

Stay safe and happy running to you all.

PB.

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.......

 Red Rose Cross Country League

Sat 12th October, Leigh

Everyone is welcome! Speedwork doesn’t just make you run faster, it makes you more comfortable at all speeds and increases your fitness.

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
