CLUB UPDATE 17/03/20

All training postponed until further notice.

The government is now advising that you avoid all but the most essential social contact. While not yet law we expect advice over the coming days to become more restrictive not less.

As a result, England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.

Many of our members work in health & well-being with vulnerable patients and we see meeting as an unacceptable risk to our members, their families and those we work with (colleagues, clients and patients). Finally you can be infected but not showing symptoms. We cannot, in good conscience, advise you meet just on the basis that you feel okay on the day of the run. As of today, Tuesday 17th March all club training sessions will be cancelled until further notice.

Current guidance suggests exercising solo is okay as long as you are outside and haven’t experienced any symptoms for more than a week – be aware that heavy training can lower the immune system though. We advise you don’t push it. Should you have any questions at all please contact either myself or any of the committee.

Make no mistake, this decision is made with a heavy heart for all committee members. But we are unanimous in both the severity of the situation we face and the need for these actions.

Keep safe and well.

Matt Price

Club Chairman
