The Committee are pleased to announce the return of group runs on Monday and Tuesday evenings at 7pm starting on Monday 26th July.
Whilst there may still be groups available on the MyRunningClub app for other days/times there will be no need to pre-book groups for the 7pm Monday and Tuesday sessions.
We will be reverting to arranging groups as we used to pre-Covid. So leaders will be asked to put their names forward on the night as usual. One main difference will be that group sizes will be restricted to a max of 12 plus leader (inline with EA guidelines) so we may well need extra people to come forward as leaders.
Details for meeting are as follows:
Meet at the Old Elizabethans cricket ground at 7pm. Toilets will be available and the bar will be open for refreshments afterwards. NOTE: the changing rooms will NOT be available for use as the cricket club are still not using them. There should be plenty of parking available but it would help if you could carshare if possible.
We are still waiting for confirmation from the University that we can return to the Riverside so, at the moment, the meeting place will be in the Range car park. Lorraine Griffiths has kindly agreed to organise the groups on the night. Again group sizes will be limited to 12 plus leader.
If anybody, who is not currently a group leader, would like to start leading do please come forward and volunteer. If you would like any advice on what is involved please let me know or speak to one of the other leaders. The only “qualifications” you need to start are the ability to maintain your advertised pace (+/-) and a reasonable sense of direction!
Looking forward to seeing you all again next week.🏃🏃♀️
By the way. the MyRunningClub app will remain active for those wishing to arrange group runs at other times, days and locations – so keep your eyes peeled for other runs during the week.
