CLUB ACTIVITY – Update 17.05.2021


We are pleased to announce that after many months of lockdown, we are looking to slowly edging towards some sort of normality.

With effect from Monday 17th May, we can now meet at the Cricket Club and run in a group of up to 30. Our runners usually run in smaller groups dependent on pace and distance that you want to cover.

All club activity will still be subject to all the protocols that were in place last autumn, until the 21st June at the earliest. You will be required to book your attendance online following the link at the bottom of this page. 

The Wednesday structured sessions and social runs have also resumed. The structured sessions now have increased capacity and can accommodate 12 runners per EA qualified coach. Again, the same protocols will be in place and you are required to book your attendance online.

PLEASE NOTE – If you book a session and then are unable to attend, please remember to cancel your place. This is very important if you are attending a Wednesday structured session, as the places are limited. 

All sessions will need to be booked via our Online Booking System

Kath Hoyer ran strongly to lead the women home in 53 rd and her efforts were rewarded with a V60 bronze medal. Anne Mayers-Smith followed three places behind while Lucy Neighbour closed out the Wesham squad in 77 th spot.
