Covid Restrictions

We plan for a return to coached running sessions and Walking groups from Wednesday 2nd December 2020 for both new and existing members.

Please understand that we will have to adapt as we go along and as guidance develops and changes through the coming months.

The location for the first few weeks will be in and around Burgess Hill and the meeting point will be shared each week.

We will aim to have multiple coaches available. Each coach will be able to take a group of 12 people. We will provide a 45 minute coached session comprising 10 minutes of drills and technique training and around 35 minutes for a coached session.

Runners and Coaches should clean their hands prior to arrival. 

Runners will need to use the booking request email address - to book their slot for each session.  These will initially be Wednesdays at:

  • 18:00
  • 18:30
  • 19:00

Runners attend at their own risk and by attending agree to abide by the Covid-19 social distance guidance and respect all other users of any roads, parks or fields that we may attend.

Runners must arrive at the meeting point already warmed up, we recommend at least a 10 minute warm-up run and dynamic stretches. Do not gather in groups. The coach will approach the group. At the end of your session please move to a different area for your cool down so that the next group can start.

A risk assessment is available and it is recommended that runners familiarise themselves to ensure they comply with all the measures necessary to minimise risks. 

    Here is some guidance that we ask all those attending to follow:

    • Runners to wear bright visible clothing, to dress appropriately for the weather, and to bring warm / waterproof clothing for after session or if an emergency occurs.
    • Runners are to observe at least 2m social distance at all times and must not touch anyone else’s belongings.
    • Runners are to face away from all other people when deep breathing.
    • No spitting to be allowed.
    • No physical interaction between each other.
    • No equipment to be shared / handled.
    • Water bottles and clothing to be personalised clearly and not shared.
    • Training is to be conducted in groups of 1 coach and up to 12 athletes.
    • Bring hand sanitising products for use in case you touch anything.
