Mid Lancs XC – Saturday 14.1.17

It is our local Mid Lancs XC on Saturday and it would be lovely to see some younger members taking part.

If you intend to come and have not let anyone know, could you please let me know then I can see how many vests I need.

If you have already got a Mid Lancs X C Number from Astley Park or Cuerden Valley Park from before Christmas – please remember to bring it with you.

U11 Girls run at 12.30
U11 Boys run at 12.45

U13 Girls run at 1.00
U13 Boys run with the U15 Girls at 1.20

U15 Boys run with the U17 Women at 1.40

Senor Women and Senior Men run at 2.00 and 2.30

Please get there at least half and hour before you run if not longer as it sometimes takes time to get numbers sorted and bring a warm coat for afterwards.

I will be in the Big Blue Pendle Tent with the Flag so come and see me then I know you are there and you can collect your numbers.


The entry for both Championships has to be made on-line by Friday, 13 January.  Please can athletes let Chris know as soon as possible if they wish to be entered.  There is a fee to enter both these races. (christine.chorlton@outlook.com)





The last session at Fisher More before Christmas will be on Monday, 12 December as the school needs the hall for mock exams on Monday, 19 December; we will return to Fisher More
on Monday, 9 January.


The last session before Christmas will be on Wednesday, 21 December. We return to Seedhill on Wednesday, 11 January.

A couple of things – is anyone interested in taking the course as below – Pendle AC will pay the fee.

Dear Team Managers

The second Mid Lancs. League defibrillator Training Course is taking place 7pm – 9pm on Tuesday 17th January 2017 at St Saviour Church, Bamber Bridge, handily placed just five minutes from J29 of the M6. The same tutor, Dawn Taylor of Rossendale First Response, is taking the course and I can say from personal experience that she is an excellent instructor and the course is very worthwhile. There are 20 places and the fee to cover room hire is £2.

A poster, both in black & white and colour, giving the full details is
attached and I would be grateful if you can publicise the course to
your members.

Thank you.


Second thing – is there anyone else who wishes to be considered for the London Marathon place which is allocated to a Pendle AC member ??? If so please let myself or Christine know ASAP

London Marathon 2017

We have had confirmation that the club has been allocated one place in
next year’s London Marathon. Please can you let Chris or Lynn know if
you are interested as soon as possible.

Lancashire Cross Country Championships – Witton Park, Blackburn – 7th January 2017

Please find attached the entry form for the above if anyone is interested. If you wish to pre-enter you must do so before 17th December. You can enter on the day but it is very slightly more expensive !

Presentation Evening

We hope you will join us at our Presentation Evening on Friday, 18 November at Nelson Cricket Club (next to the track) 7.30 p.m. Certificates will be presented at around 8.00/8.15 p.m. to athletes who have competed for the club this year at Track and Field league and Open meetings, Cross Country (2015/2016 season, Oct-March) and Fell races.

Just found out recently that this young man – Elijah Adeolu-Lambert was our only Pendle entry in the Blackpool Medal Meeting on 11th September and won himself a fantastic Gold Medal in the U11 Boys 80m. A big well done from us all Elijah – superb running.
