Following the Government’s briefing on 16 March it has been decided to cancel all formal training sessions until at least the end of April. For clarity, this includes Tuesday and Thursday sessions, Saturday morning cross country training and Sunday trail running sessions.
Whilst the welfare and safety of all members is our priority it is also important to note that we have a social and moral responsibility to help protect the greater population, that being vulnerable members of our families, and the wider community – the elderly and those with underlying health problems.
Please find below a statement from England Athletics:
Following UK government’s advice on social distancing we advise 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.
We will of course continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and if there is any change we will keep you informed.
