COVID-19: Update for members

17 March 2020 - By Jason Lilley

Following the Prime Minister’s message yesterday and guidance received from England Athletics, the Committee has decided to cancel all training until at least the end of April.  We will review this decision again nearer the time and keep you all updated.

This is not a decision that was taken lightly.  We are just as disappointed as we know many of you will be, but the safety of our members and our responsibility to our community has to take priority.

We know that for many, running is a way of keeping healthy, both physically and mentally.  To this end, the committee are looking at other ways to keep everyone engaged and involved in the club during this difficult time.

We are also looking at ways to support any of our members who might be affected by the Coronavirus or any of the measures being put in place to stop it spreading.

If anybody has any suggestions, we would be grateful to hear them.  You can contact any member of your Committee using the ‘Contact’ page of our website.

You can read the full advice issued by England Athletics here.

In the meantime we hope that you all keep well, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Bill Smythe
