A reminder that the current situation for training, club runs etc, as per the EA website is as follows:

“From [5 November 2020], the UK Government is requiring everyone in England to stay at home, except for specific purposes, and not gather with other people who do not live in the same household, again except for specific purposes. As a result, the impact on athletics and running will include suspension of the following (we may update this guidance as and when more information from DCMS becomes available, for example, in relation to U18s  / disability provision):

·         All indoor club group coaching activity

·         All outdoor club group coaching activity

·         All indoor track and field competitions

·         All outdoor competition (track and field, cross country, road, trail, fell and multi-terrain)

·         All face-to-face coach and officials’ education

What can take place?

The UK Government has confirmed that you can exercise with people from your own household OR with one other person.

For athletics and running this means:

·         You can train with your household or one other person in a public outdoor space

·         1:1 coaching can take place in a public outdoor space following social distancing measures (Please note: We are seeking clarity on 1:1 coaching with U18s and disability athletes/runners)

·         Virtual training sessions can be delivered by qualified coaches

·         Virtual competitions will still take place, and a list of virtual road races can be found here England Athletics will continue to coordinate the Weekly 30

 

Club Runs:

For the time being these are suspended. However, you can follow the guidelines and find one other person to run with during the weeks ahead, the government has clarified this does not always have to be the same person. 

 

AGM:

This went ahead last night and minutes will be circulated very soon. Thanks to everyone who participated; it went well.
