COVID-19 - Temporary closure notice


As I’m sure you are aware there is due to be a new Covid-19 lockdown from Thursday 4 November. This will mean that:

  • We will only be able to exercise on our own, with household members or with one other person while maintaining social distancing. No more groups runs with 5 others I’m afraid.
  • That all sports facilities will have to close.

Although officially we have to close from Thursday, as Phil Hanson and I are not available on Tuesday to open the club, I have decided, that given the circumstances, the club is now closed until further notice. This is of course very sad, especially after all the hard work to get the club open again in a Covid-19 secure manner.

As you will have no doubt seen the present lockdown will last until at least December 2nd.

We will of course reopen the club as soon as regulations allow and we have everything in place to open safely again when allowed.

As you may be aware we had intended to run both a version of the Club 5 and 10 mile handicaps before Christmas. These will have to be postponed but we will try to hold them at a later date.

Keep an eye open for news of some new virtual handicap races. We will advertise by email, Facebook group and website.

Due to the postponement of the Club 5, Jon Burdon has offered to organise some handicap events possibly 1500m, 5K and 10K, details have still to be worked out but these will hopefully give members of all abilities something to aim for.

Let’s hope that by sticking to the rules we can get the infection rate (R value) down again and this pandemic under control.

Look after yourselves and keep training.
