Covid-19 Restrictions - Updated 26 Jul 2020:
Return to Restricted Club Activity
Following changes to Government Covid-19 Guidance on 9th July and subsequent changes to the England Athletics guidance on 17th July we are now starting to put in place the measures required to reintroduce some form of club training; albeit in a more limited capacity.
With the reopening of the London Road Track from 27th July we have decided to start with the reintroduction of Thursday Night Track Training sessions. The sessions will commence on Thursday 30th July. A full risk assessment has been undertaken and precautionary measures have been put in place to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission as much as is possible.
The Committee will be discussing in early August the possibility of also starting to reintroduce other club training sessions in some limited capacity, although the difficulties to overcome when operating in a public environment are clearly much greater. We will keep you posted on proposals in due course.
For the first week, the London Road Track session will be limited to 15 runners (mebership only), but we hope that this number will soon be able to be increased. As spaces are limited you will need to book you track training place by completing this booking form.
Bookings for the first session on Thursday 30th July will open at 6pm Sunday 26th July and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Bookings for subsequent weeks will be able to be made from 6pm the Sunday before.
All runners must read and adhere to the Shropshire Shufflers Covid-19 Runners Guidance (linked here),and on the Booking Form complete a health declaration .
We hope to provide a further update on other club activities in the next couple of weeks.
