Message from the Chair Sunday 28th June 2020
Well, hello everyone, its been a long time!
I hope this finds you all fit, healthy and well and looking forward to a return to some running from the Hockey Club. England Athletics has provided clubs with advice and guidance on managing runners returning to club runs whilst still following government guidelines.
As a committee we have taken the decision to begin running from the Hockey Club on Tuesday 7th July 2020 at 7pm and each Tuesday and Thursday thereafter.
There is a new page on the web site which you can access very easily by clicking the COVID19 image on the front page. This is the place for all your COVID19 running related questions and information.
I am the COVID19 Coordinator for the club and as part of that role a risk assessment has been completed in line with England Athletic guidelines. This can be found on our web site, COVID19 Risk Assessment please take the time to read it.
In addition, a briefing note has been written, which outlines how the club running will take place. It’s a bit prescriptive I’m afraid, but I’m sure you’ll understand that it’s also necessary. The COVID19 Briefing Note is also available on our web site.
The success or otherwise of our return to club running will require everyone to take personal responsibility for ensuring compliance with government guidelines to reduce the risk of spreading COVID19.
To return to club running you will need to be fully paid up members, so if you haven’t already done so please use the link and sign up. Membership Renewal Form If you can’t remember if you have, or have not renewed please email Sylvia firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let you know the situation.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you on the 7th July to enjoy some great running and company. We will begin with the old favourite, Supermarket Sweep route and a group heading down the Nidd Gorge. We have a list of Club Routes now available also on our web site.
As I said at the beginning of this, its been too long!
