Training Off – This week!

Dear WRC member,     Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday 16th March, and the rapidly escalating situation regarding Covid-19, we are taking the precaution of cancelling the training sessions this Tuesday and Thursday (17th and 19th March).

This is in line with other local running clubs.   We will review the situation later this week in the light of any clearer guidance and let you know the plans for next week onwards.

Apologies for any disappointment and thank you for your understanding and support in these exceptional times.

  1. England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.

    The decision has been taken in the interests of athletes, runners, officials, coaches, volunteers, supporters and the wider athletics and running communities. This decision is also in alignment with actions taken by the home country athletics federations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and is similar to action taken by other sports.

    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.

    England Athletics will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to our sport in the coming weeks. We appreciate that the current situation will undoubtedly place our member clubs in a difficult situation and we are working with UKA and the other Home Country Athletics Federations on the best way to help alleviate the situation and will update you as plans evolve.
