England Athletics has updated its guidance from 1 June. Please follow the link to read the full details.
Our committee held an online meeting yesterday evening. Our training venue, Archway School, remains off-limits to us and in the light of this guidance we do not believe that the Club can safely offer a return to group activities at this time. We know that many members will be disappointed but your safety is our top concern.
Before we can restart Club activities we will need to appoint a COVID-19 Co-ordinator to take responsibility for the club plan and undertake the relevant risk assessments. If anyone would like to volunteer for this role or to join a small working party to assist that will help to move things along.
In the meantime the guidance permits individuals to run together in groups of six (either 1 coach + 5 runners or 6 runners) provided that distancing is maintained and the necessary precautions taken so those who wish to take advantage of this may do so on a personal basis.
There are also a number of activities and virtual challenges online for members to enjoy, including the Club 5k challenge and the Stonehouse virtual Parkrun.
Please continue to stay safe, keep in touch with others and let us hope we can return safely to official Club activities before too long.
