England Athletics confirmed on 4th Nov that in accordance with the government instructions all group club activity will be suspended between 5/11 to 2/12. The suspended activity includes:
• All indoor club group coaching activity • All outdoor club group coaching activity • All indoor track and field competitions • All outdoor competition (track and field, cross country, road, trail, fell and multi-terrain) • All face-to-face coach and officials’ education
The big difference from Lockdown 1 in March is that you can meet one other person from another household in outside open spaces (not home gardens). In addition, you are also allowed to drive short distances (in your own area) to reach a suitable space to exercise.
This will be a real benefit, esp. with the darker nights, enabling you to meet up with somebody else to run with and to arrange to meet and run in locations that you feel safer in e.g. the seafront.
There are full details of the lockdown rules on Gov.uk or the BBC site. There are also various examples of steps you might want to consider to make sure that you are safe running alone or at night on sites such as Runners World, Todays Runner, Wiggle etc.
Hopefully, it will only be the 4-week lockdown period this time, but we suggest that you make early use of the opportunity to make contact and run with somebody else.
