Well, I’m sad to say the inevitable has happened!
It’s with a heavy heart that I have to write this, but the committee has taken the decision to cancel all club training for the foreseeable future.
In light of the government’s decision to move from mitigation to suppression, the advice that even if you’re feeling well, you should stop all unnecessary contact with others, we really have no choice.
I will be in touch very soon with some ideas around maintaining that sense of belonging within the club, some virtual training ideas and plans.
Our club Captains and coaches are considering ways in which we can achieve this.
Obviously this will have an impact on our club championship races, but again we will look at ways of making something of the races completed to date, and for the future.
I will keep the weekly email going – with updates and news on what members have been up to in their isolated or semi isolated lives, together with some ideas for training.
It goes without saying that looking after yourself, both your physical and mental health is even more challenging in times such as this.
We’re a club. We’re a club of people who run, but we care for one another too, so let’s keep that going through conversation and support.
Wishing you and your families good health, the strength to do the right thing by yourselves and others, and above all to know you’re not alone in this.
Best wishes, Christine
