Fun & Safe.
Our run sessions should always be Fun, Friendly, Inclusive & Supportive.
For us to run together during the current COVID-19 pandemic we now will need to adhere many, sometimes changing requirements upon us from UK Athletics and the UK government. We hope that by following these guidelines and restrictions we will help to keep each other and any other members of the public safe. We are very grateful to YWAM for providing a venue for our sessions and we will strive to be considerate and in harmony with the residents on campus at the Highfield Oval. We are aware that any future government restrictions could mean that we lose access to our training venue at short notice.
But despite the following list of rules we need to follow, we think our sessions together will still be FUN!
Lot’s of FUN!
Please make sure that you understand and are able to follow all of our current practices on our athlete checklist.
