Latest Guidance from England Athletics about training during the pandemic

Updated guidance re COVID and running from 5th November 2020.

The PM’s announcement on Saturday means that we are unable to have group runs commencing 5th November for 4 weeks. However, we can still run with the people we live with, people in our support bubble (if we are part of one) or one person from another household.

The good news is that we can still run as long as we like with one other person! Many of us learned in the last lockdown that running really can be better with a buddy either for intervals, chatty runs or just to give confidence and new routes. If you would like to run with a buddy please post your proposed day/time in the Facebook group page and anyone in the club can reply to arrange meet up with you. You can change buddies as often as you like as long as it is only the two of you at any one time.

It is important that Club members acknowledge that, while we cannot remove the risks associated with COVID-19, we are able to manage the risks based upon the current government and England Athletics guidelines and advice. 

We will continue to update information on this page as the government releases any new changes. 

Key Objectives:

  • Follow guidelines.
  • All members to be safe and feel safe.
  • Any members of the public we meet while on  runs with one other person are in no doubt that we are following Government guidelines on social distancing.
  • As before, we MUST observe 2m social distancing at all times – before, during and after our runs.
