Arrangements for Club Activities Due to Social Distancing Precautions:

The club can now meet for all its regular training sessions with some restrictions on group numbers and social distancing precautions. To enable planning of groups and potential contact tracing all runners attending a session are required to register their intention to run using the Doodle polls circulated by email and Whatsapp.


Regular club runs such as the social runs and Sunday runs are restricted to 6 runners per group. If more than 6 then separate groups will be designated with different start times offset by 15 minutes from the previous group.


Wednesday training and torch runs may have unlimited runners with a designated trainer / leader. These sessions are run in a COVID secure environment in line with the recommendations of UK Athletics.


The club's risk assessment of these arrangements have introduced the following rules to minimise the risks associated with the spread of Covid-19:

  1. You MUST follow the current government guidance on social distancing and other hygene measures.
  2. DO NOT turn up for training if you feel unwell or are exhibiting any symptoms of Covid-19.
  3. You must book all sessions in advance. Those members without a advance  booking will be turned away.
  4. The Newman Collard clubhouse building will remain unused at this time. Please ensure you bring water etc with you to sessions. Do not share water bottles with other runners.
  5. Do not allow other runners to join your ‘official’ group on the day.

Sunday Runs:**
