CORONAVIRUS CLUB STATEMENT

The decision was taken with much regret to cancel all training sessions from the 17th March until further notice.

 

This was with the benefit of advice from the government & England Athletics.

 

In addition all committee meetings have been cancelled whilst the AGM which was due on 19th March was postponed.

 

Many competitions have been cancelled including:-

YDL UAG 26th April,

HOE 3rd May

Midland league 17th May & 7th June.

Four of the Warwickshire Road Race league events have been cancelled.

 

Midland Women’s XC league AGM due 6th April postponed

Entries for MCAA Senior & U20 Champs 27th & 28th June have been closed until the situation regarding their viability is known.

 

In view of the lack of acvity within the Club we have decided not to activate the new Club fee system until we can return to some normality.

We shall therefore not be renewing athletes’ registraon with England Athlecs at present. However, if anybody wishes their registration to be paid for the year from 1st April you will need to pay us the £16 fee.

To do this go to the ‘Membership’ tab on our website which will take you to our WebCollect page.

Click on browse subs & go through the procedure to add the EA fee to your basket.

 

It is likely to be several months before the situation improves but please keep an eye on our website for updates

These may also come from your coaches.

 

We are in unprecedented times & have no idea when we can return to normal. But return we will & with more enthusiasm & appreciation for the sport that we love.

 

Try to do some exercise on a daily basis including stretching & drills in the back garden. If you go for runs make sure it is safe & don’t get too close to people. Try not to touch surfaces while you are out but if you can’t avoid it take a sanitizer with you. On return wash your hands thoroughly with soap & water for 20 secs or more.

 

I wish you all the best of luck & hopefully we’ll be back together soon.

Club Chairman
