Following the UK Government’s new national COVID-19 restrictions and the publication of bespoke instructions from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), EA have revised the current guidance for athletics and running. Despite us lobbying DCMS for certain exemptions, this new guidance will apply from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020.
From this Thursday [5 November 2020], the UK Government is requiring everyone in England to stay at home, except for specific purposes, and not gather with other people who do not live in the same household, again except for specific purposes. As a result, the impact on athletics and running will include suspension of all club runs and group training.
Boxted Runners are hopeful that our club sessions will return to normal as from Thursday 3rd December.
All existing bookings for Club sessions have been canceled.
We will keep you updated and we already have a few ideas to help keep everyone going over the next few weeks! Coaching is still permitted on a 1-1 basis as is meeting up with 1 other runner too.
We will be posting more details about this shortly.
Looking forward to getting back on our group runs together very soon!
