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).
