Hi – Anyone that is going to the Cross Country tomorrow at Chorley – good luck. The registration will be from a white van near the cafe – any younger ones, collect your numbers and leave the numbers there for the senior men who will collect them and bring them back for me.



Please let me know if you are intending to go to the Cross Country at Chorley – I know Charlotte is thinking of going and also a couple of senior men. I would suggest that if we can we leave the numbers at registration once you have collected your numbers so that one of the senior men can bring the numbers back to Pendle. Please see the attachment for the race details – unfortunately I cannot attend as my daughter is training in Rochdale.

If anyone needs a vest please let me know by tomorrow at the latest and as with the Mid Lancs – please hang on to your numbers for the season.

Good luck everyone and please let me know how you go on

Red Rose XC Chorley 11 November 2017


This year’s Presentation Evening is on Friday, 17November at Nelson Cricket Club, 7.30 p.m. (next to the track). Certificates will be presented at around 8.15 p.m. to athletes who have competed for the club at Track and Field, Cross Country (2016/17 season – this is last year’s league meetings) and Fell races. Trophies will also be awarded under several categories and those athletes who were awarded a trophy last year will receive a small award to keep.
Everyone is welcome to the evening, including new members who have not yet competed for the club and their families. Cost of tickets per person, for adults and children is £3.00 which includes pie and peas.

If you are coming please can you let Chris, Lynn, or coaches know so we can estimate how many pies to order.


Fisher More closes for half-term on Friday, 27 October for one week. There will be no training for the Monday Young Athlete Group on Monday, 30 October.  We will return when Fisher More reopens on Monday, 6 November (6:45-7:45 p.m.)

Dates when the school needs the Sportshall for mock exams have not yet been received; we will let you know as soon as possible.  Details will also go on the club’s website www.pendleac.org.uk and Facebook.




Please could all Athletes in the U15 Age Group and above fill one of the attached Forms in as soon as possible – you can vote for any athlete in any age group (younger or older) but they must compete for the Club and train regularly, be of a pleasant personality and always compete to the best of their ability.

This is in readiness for the Presentation Night on Friday 17th November 2017 at Nelson Cricket Club.

I will have some of these Forms with me on Track Nights or you can private message me your choices or click on the link above

Thank you – I look forward to hearing from you all very shortly !!


Course Description rev B(2)


Just a reminder re the course on Saturday at Cuerden Valley.

As I will not be able to make it on Saturday – if you require a vest I will be at the track on Wednesday night.

With regard to the numbers – please visit the registration tent or desk and ask for the Pendle numbers – your number should be in the envelope. Please leave the numbers at the desk for everyone to collect – the last people to register – Jon Van Geffen or Thomas Marchant – they will bring the numbers back to the Club for me – please.

For those who have not done a Cross Country before – please keep your numbers safe after the race – you will have the same number all season.  Don’t worry about them getting dirty or creased – whatever you do – don’t iron them – they melt !! Trust me – I know !

Dear Parents,


We can now confirm that we shall be hiring Fisher More High School’s sports hall for indoor training on Monday evenings for the club’s Young Athletes’ group.


Training indoors will commence on MONDAY, 16 October 6:45 – 7:45 p.m. and will continue until the middle of MARCH 2018.  Athletes using the facility will be charged £2.00 to cover the cost of the hire.  Athletes should meet and be collected inside school, but parents can be assured that an official from the club will remain at the school until all athletes have been collected.  There will be some Mondays when we will not be allowed to use the school sportshall – half-term holidays and when the hall is used for mock exams but we will notify you of these dates.


Therefore, after the Monday, 9 October session, the outdoor Monday sessions at Seedhill track for the Young Athletes’ Group will discontinue until March 2018, when we will return to the track.  The Sprint, Endurance and Throws groups remain at Seedhill track throughout the winter and the Wednesday sessions for young athletes (7-8 p.m.) also continue at the track throughout the winter.


All children who wish to train with the club MUST be members; their details are stored on an England Athletics database which ensures they have insurance cover and the club also takes out extra cover in a Personal Accident insurance policy. The club will then also have full contact details, emergency contact details and any medical information which may need to be taken into consideration by club coaches.


Several athletes have been training at Seedhill for some time and have not returned their membership form with the annual membership fee.  The forms need to be completed and the fee paid before we start indoor training at Fisher More; we must ensure that all athletes are on our database and have full insurance cover.  Our coaches should not be coaching athletes without insurance cover.

We have again contacted Fisher More and still have no news when we can start our Monday indoor training for the Young Athlete Group.  We have asked to start on the 16 October and have been told this should be ok.  Letters are ready to go out and information is ready for the club’s website and Facebook but until we have definite confirmation we will still be training at Seedhill track.

The first cross countries are Mid Lancs – Cuerden Valley Park
on 14th October – see the Mid Lancs Cross Country and Track website for full details of maps and parking.

The first Red Rose League XC is on the 14th October also at Leigh Sports Village
Sale Way

Please let me know if anyone is interested in going to either. Lynn

Please find below a list of all the Cross Country Fixtures for this season – if you want to go to any of them please try and see Lynn or Christine then we can ensure that you have vests, a number and full instructions.
