RACE AMENDMENT - Blackpool Beach 10k

Hi all - very sorry but i can now confirm this race is taking place on Sunday 26th May, NOT the 12th as originally advertised. Unfortunately a rogue advertisement online has fooled us!

Apologies for the confusion, and for those i have told that it was on the 12th...Liam's post about the mini bus is also regarding the 26th May.

 

Cheers,

Fred

Treasure Hunt. This year's Treasure Hunt will kick off the Summer Runs. It will be from the Swan Hotel in Whalley Centre on Tuesday 30th April. Last year's event was a huge success despite the pouring rain - this year sunny warm weather has been ordered. More details to follow so watch this space but a great menu has been arranged, prizes on the night and loads of fun.

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
