In light of government announcements on the 16 March advising that we should avoid non-essential social contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues, all 26.2 club training and competitive events have been suspended until further notice. This is in line with England Athletics advice issued this morning: https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/coronavirus-statement/.
Any changes to our position will be posted to this website.
I know that many will be bitterly disappointed after working hard for various events including spring marathons. But we are committed to working together for the health of all our members and the wider community.
England Athletics encourages where possible, athletes and runners at all levels to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
