Returning to group running

Following the most recent official advice, the committee have reviewed our position and we have decided that Wednesday Club Nights/Out Runs and Friday Social Runs will not restart until England Athletics (EA) permits mass gatherings of up to at least 50 participants to enable us to accommodate the numbers that have shown interest in returning. Our priority is your safety.
Regarding Thursday technical sessions we are now developing a way that we can safely and fairly accommodate sessions.  To work within the current EA guidelines we have to apply a ratio of one coach or run leader to five participating members only. So if we plan a session to be managed by one coach and two run leaders the maximum we are permitted to train will be 15 (in three separate groups).
When we are in a position to do so we will inform all members of our intent and what members will need to do to join a Thursday night technical session.
We are hoping of course that additional guidance will come from EA allowing greater participation and we will review our plans appropriately then. In the meantime we are limited by current EA guidance.
Stay safe
