High visibility bibs or tops are not mandatory after the start of BST on 29th March
As it is a non-essential activity, all club training and events are suspended until further
notice but this updated programme has been circulated to provide members with individual training
suggestions and guidelines.
It will also provide continuity should the situation improve before
the end of the spring-summer period.
Additionally, Kyle Armstrong will be proposing virtual
individual training by use of Strava and social media, plus suggested routes for safer off-road training.
The programme and club website provide known and safe training routes for individual members
to use but The King’s School Ely playing fields should not be used.
We expect races, including the Kevin Henry League, will be cancelled. Our home KHL event has already been cancelled.
Please note that:
- We recognise that unofficial training in small groups will likely continue but members attending
such training do so entirely at their own virus-related risk and cannot rely on a club run leader.
- We implore members to take isolation and social distancing advice seriously but we cannot enforce or police it.
- The Paradise is currently open but may close at short notice. If used, please respect their procedures.
Senior Tuesday and Thursday Training Cancelled until further notice
Junior Tuesday Training Cancelled until further notice
Senior Sunday Training Cancelled until further notice
Track Is Back Cancelled until further notice
Safety & Welfare
Coaches to ensure juniors are escorted, use pedestrian crossings, and walk through car parks.
Senior members are to take individual due care and consideration of traffic when crossing roads.
Be aware of people in parked cars who may open doors onto pavements without looking.
The use of audio equipment with earphones is NOT permitted during club training or races as these devices inhibit the user from hearing traffic approaching from behind and warnings from others.
