Training and Covid-19: Update

We have now started to re-introduce some training sessions organised in line with the latest government and England Athletics guidance. The key elements of the guidance are:

  • Groups of up to 6 people
  • Keep a social distance of 2m
  • Keep a record of attendance for track and trace
  • Runners not to attend if they have Covid-19 symptoms or feel unwell

The full guidance can be found here: https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/guidance-update-for-restricted-return-to-activity-for-coaches-leaders-athletes-runners-and-facilities-step-3/

We have two sessions each week:

Tuesdays 6:30pm – Effort Session. Meet at the Town Gate

Saturdays 9am – Social Run, Multi-Terrain. Meet at the Black Prince Gate

We will monitor the progress of these sessions and any changes to the EA guidance and will adjust the programme accordingly. All members are welcome to attend; it helps us to plan the sessions if you let us know via email or the Teamer app if you plan to attend.

If you are not a member of the club and are interested to join a session please send a message via https://www.woodstockharriers.co.uk/contact-us/ so we can plan to include you.
