Club Activities Update


UPDATE ON COVID-19. Updated 23rd July

Following advice from England Athletics we are now able to hold our Monday Club Evening as well as Wednesday Structured Sessions. Whilst numbers for each structured session will be capped at 12, there will be no limit on attendees on a Monday, albeit we would ask that runners set off in small groups of no more than six. It is essential that those intending to attend either evening must book by using our online booking system.

Each session will be available for booking over the weekend in readiness for the following Monday/Wednesday and you will be able to check the website for details . The calendar on the booking page will give details of who else has booked on a session in case you wish to train with runners of similar ability and as far as Wednesday sessions are concerned the relevant coach will make contact with you in advance to confirm the precise location details.

To book sessions please visit Your confirmation email will set out the protocols that we have adopted to keep everyone safe, and you are requested to follow these.

Please do keep on running as we are encouraged to keep fit and healthy.

Thanks for your understanding and keep well.
