TRC Virtual Club Night 14/05/20

The Government have relaxed some of the rules about ‘going out’ although things are quite ambiguous and seem to be left up to your own interpretation. There has been no change in the official advice from England Athletics – EA have cancelled all activities until 31st May and all Competition until the end of June.

The latest statement by the CEO of England Athletics is being sent as a separate e-mail as it is quite long and to keep it separate from the day to day stuff.

What is clear is that all local and national events are cancelled and there is no sign of when we might get back to racing. We can’t meet or go for a run as a Group and the Leisure Centre is still closed until further notice.

Apparently, the official line is that you can now go for a run with one other person as long as you stay 2 metres apart and shout! And you can go open water swimming if you like cold water. (The Trench is open but Cromhall Quarry is still closed)
