In terms of organising runs during Covid 19, here is the latest guidance for running clubs from England Athletics based on the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Groups of up to 6 people can now train outdoors providing runners maintain social distancing advice i.e. 2 metres apart if from a different household. But as gatherings of more than 6 people are still not permitted we are currently not able to get altogether as a club.
We are aware that people are now beginning to run in small groups of 6 or less and as such we want to support this within the guidelines to ensure safety of our members. There is a risk assessment here that club members should read before participating in any run to ensure you are aware of and adhere to the guidelines for everyone’s safety.
If you organise a run, we advise leaders to post on Facebook.
Within this post please include a meet time and location, as well as an indication of the pace.
Please also keep this post updated with the number of remaining spaces, to ensure the group does not exceed 6 people.
Group Leaders in particular need to be responsible for;
1. Route planning - Be conscious and try to avoid potentially populated areas. Particularly narrow paths.
2. Group size - The group is not to exceed 6 people under any circumstances
3. Social distancing must be adhered to within the group at all times
4. Pro active distancing when coming across members of the public.
The committee are constantly reviewing the guidelines so we are ready in preparing for running post lockdown and will keep you updated here on the web and also via facebook
Stay safe and keep running!
