Pilot training run

I will be leading a training session in Richmond Park at 7.00pm next Monday 27 July as a pilot for developing club training runs that are compliant with England Athletics COVID-19 rules.  To comply, I must be joined by no more than five other runners and we will run a minimum of two metres apart.  If you would like to join me please go to the Facebook page 26.2 RRC – We is Runners (members only)  and reply to my post.  I will finalise our list of participants on a first come first served basis.  The run will be approximately 6 miles (all within the perimeter road), off-road and quite hilly.  I plan on running at about 8:30 minutes per mile pace.  We will meet at 7.00pm on the grass just across the perimeter road (Broomfield Hill) from the Kingston Gate Car Park keeping at least 2m apart.  You can currently only gain vehicular access by entering at the Kingston gate.  Please be prompt as I plan to set off at 7.05pm.
