To All Members

 

I hope you are keeping well in these most unusual of times, and i hope most importantly that you are managing to keep running (and sane) as much as possible! 

 

We think as a committee that it is important to keep you all informed with the latest goings on in the running community and also to ensure that you know we are keeping up to date with all Government policy. We know that everyone wants to get back to run club activities as soon as it is safe to do so, and we will continue to ensure that that happens as soon as it can! 

 

The latest Government guidelines have led UK Athletics to revise their statement from early May 2020 to state the following:

"You may meet with FIVE other people from outside your household to exercise outdoors, whilst following social distancing guidelines. This means that if you do take part in such an activity YOU MUST remain at least 2 metres apart AT ALL TIMES from those outside your household".

 

Unfortunately the UKA's guidance continues to be that all running club activities remain suspended until further notice. 
Again i must state that we will continue to monitor this situation closely and provide updates whenever possible going forward.

 

I also want to say a big congratulations and well done for all those taking part in the ARR bingo that was posted on the Facebook page. This led to some very amusing and inspiring videos and photos. A very well done especially to all those who completed the full Bingo card - we will have some prizes ready for when we come back. 

 

For now the only thing left to say is that we hope you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy, and remember to talk to your fellow members to keep in touch, even if you aren't meeting up to run!

 

All the best,

Fred - on behalf of the Accrington Road Runners Committee.
