Club running update

Hello Dallamites,

As government restrictions relax on the 29th March, myself and the committee have assessed options available to us for restarting club running again.
Whilst regulations permit us to reconvene in groups of 12 we recognise that some members may be a little apprehensive at restarting club runs in groups of this size.
We therefore have taken the decision to restart club running under the “rule of six” format which had proved both enjoyable and safe for us previously. Venues will be listed on the club calendar shortly but will start at the Heron Corn Mill on Wednesday 7th April. We intend again for the groups of six to run independently from each other and the success of this format is reliant on members being prepared to lead a run group if required. We will adhere to the “rule of six" format for four weeks during which time we can assess appetite to move to the larger groups of twelve.

As a further reassurance, government coronavirus staging data shows that the areas selected for the first four weeks runs are currently classified as being “surpressed” meaning cases are less than three or no instances of the virus. Together with the added safety of running in smaller groups this seems an opportune time to get back safely to club running.

Finally I would request that all members wishing to attend, familiarise themselves with our return to running protocol via the link below...

I look forward to seeing you on the 7th April.

Jon Wallbank
