Covid1902/06/20 - Update from England Athletics

Following the government's changes to the lockdown restrictions, England Athletics issued updated advice for runners on 1st June.

The new regulations specify that the maximum number of people who can meet in England is six. England Athletics advice is that groups can now comprise six athletes or five athletes plus a coach, provided distancing is observed. A risk assessment must also be in place for the club's insurance to be valid.
The committee met online this evening (2nd June) and concluded that we are not able to write a risk assessment which might sensibly allow us to offer our regular club meets at this point. We have no realistic means of controlling numbers attending and pre- and post-training gatherings are specifically not permitted at this time. These reasons and a lack of control over what might be happening at the locations we use for runs means that we do not believe that club sessions can be guaranteed to fall within the regulations. As such, the Shufflers Monday, Wednesday, and Daytime sessions normally held at various venues across Shrewsbury will remain suspended until the regulations are further relaxed.
The committee have concluded that a resumption of track sessions may be possible. However, the track is currently closed and so they will not restart yet. Once we can gain access to the track, we will need to review the track risk assessment and tailor it to our own needs. For that reason, the Thursday track sessions also remain suspended currently.
The best we can suggest is that you organise your own private meetups. Please keep within the regulations; currently groups of 6 in England can run together (observing social distancing) but please be mindful that regulations in Wales may differ. These meetups cannot be considered club runs and so we suggest you do not wear club colours. We'd also ask you to be considerate of where and when you choose to run, following the crowded scenes that have taken place at some of the local beauty spots like the Wrekin and Church Stretton. If you are running around Shrewsbury, we would ask that you stick to paths that are wide enough for your group to pass others safely and considerately.
The committee hope you can continue to enjoy your running and very much look forward to the time we can hold a proper club meet again.
