In our last update, we let you know that we had received updated England Athletics guidance and we were waiting further clarification, we are pleased to confirm that we have now received this and following a successful test over the weekend on the new guidance we are increasing the numbers that can attend club runs up to 12 runners as a first step, this will increase for the booked runs from the 1 August 2020. We could go further but feel at this stage this is a wise first step.

In order to make this change we have updated the club COVID risk assessment and to confirm Michelle GB is the clubs COVID officer, runners are still required to social distance and stick to the runners COVID guidelines that are below and runs will be in COVID secure environments
We will be continuing with the current process for booking runs, via events on your Redway Runners Love Admin account (with the exception of Move Up to Marathon group and the Under 18s)

Please ensure that your contact details are up to date on your Redway Runners Love Admin account in case it needs to be used for Test and Trace

  • You will always maintain social distancing including before, during and at the end of the run

  • You will not pass anything to other runners or ask anyone to hold anything for you (including the run lead), ie keys, water
  • You must wash your hands before the run and after the run – you must bring hand sanitiser
