COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update
Many members will have seen the latest statement from England Athletics: https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/coronavirus-statement/
As an affiliated organisation, it is important that we act on their advice, which is of course consistent with the latest message from the UK Government.
We will therefore be pausing training for senior and junior members with immediate effect.
Please note that the EA statement includes “Where possible, athletes and runners at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments”.
As a committee we are evaluating what that means for us in practice. If we can support members with practical ways to maintain your motivation and training, within the confines of guidance from the government and UKA, we are keen to explore ways to help you keep active.
We will provide further updates over forthcoming days as further information and guidance is provided.
Be sensible and keep safe.
