Weekly update from Beeston AC


Hi all – hoping this newsletter finds you and family well. Details below of the coming week’s runs.


The good news from England Athletics is that the new restrictions on the number of people allowed to meet up as from Monday, 14 September will not affect running club and group activity so our runs may continue.


Welcome to new member Marcus Nelson: happy running with Beeston AC!


Sunday, 13 September: Please meet at 8.50 am for 9.00 am start. Steve Mason is taking us on tour this week. The run will be from Colliers Wood Car Park NG16 2FF (free) near Moorgreen. The run will be 10.5 miles on trails and paths (that could be muddy). The route will go past the reservoir onto some of the new Goosefair Gallop race route, through the forest, and on through the fields via Watnall and Newthorpe before returning to the colliery. All welcome! No one gets left Behind. Steve’s mobile is 07412675375 if anyone needs directions.


Speed Session Tuesday, 15 September: meet 6.15 pm for a warm up at Bramcote Track, Moor Lane NG9 3GA (parking on Moor Lane is best). Dave Bish is in charge this week (thanks Dave!). Session to start 6.30 pm. If you would like to come up with a speed/hills session for us please let me know and you can be added to the rota. Chris Robson up next with a hills session!


Wednesday, 16 September, 6.25 for 6.30 pm depart, Chilwell Olympia


Penny and Chris have a group of Improvers doing a 5K loop setting off at the same time and we would welcome new runners along – no one will get left behind. We had another great turn out last night and some beginners – so if you know someone who would like to start running please ask them to get in touch (poster attached).


Friday 18 September, 6.25 for 6.30 pm depart, Chilwell Olympia


Terms and conditions for attending Club Runs


Please note that we need to comply with guidance from England Athletics at present. In lieu of requiring members to complete a pre-activity health questionnaire before joining Club runs, our policy is that by attending sessions you are confirming that you have not got any Covid symptoms to the best of your knowledge. Sorry to keep repeating this but it is important for the next few weeks.


By choosing to attend for club training sessions, you are undertaking to comply with the following:


* Only attend club running/training sessions on the basis that you believe you have not experienced any Covid-19 symptoms and willing to comply with COVID-19 health and safety requirements concerning social distancing and hygiene before, during or after activity

* Attend to join a club run 5 minutes before the run is due to start ready to run (no changing facilities etc currently available) so that a photo may be taken of everyone taking part. We will convene at a safe distance from the Leisure Centre

* If you become unwell subsequently and are diagnosed with Covid-19, undertake to inform the Club as soon as your illness is confirmed so that anyone who ran with you may be informed for tracking and testing purposes.


Anyone not registered with the Club (and England Athletics) will be required to complete a form (Neil has copies of this and Chris has copies for the Improvers).
