Stragglers Updated Statement on Covid-19 (6/6/20)

Posted by Alan Mawdsley on 8 June 2020

On June 1st, in response to the latest government guidelines on exercising outdoors, England Athletics released an update to their policy. Please read it to be familiar with how this affects you. Groups of up to six people can meet outdoors and exercise together, or, a group of five with one coach. At all times the two-metre social distancing rule must be maintained.

What does this mean for Stragglers activity?

Kev Best is offering a range of bookable training sessions for up to five people throughout the week, details below.

No other formal club group (such as Little Feet, Thames Ditton, Thursday evenings) will resume at this time. 

The Stragglers committee will monitor government and England Athletics guidelines and will agree any changes to this with the club members responsible for each group session.

We encourage you to organise small groups (no more than 6 people) to run with and please respect other users of public spaces.

Current Club Activity

We’re really pleased with the participation in our Lockdown Ladder and virtual competitions and hope these are providing an enjoyable way for you to compete with one another. Do continue to send us your times for 1 mile, 5k, 10k and 10 miles. 

We also have virtual 10 mile and half marathon championships in July and August respectively and are planning other virtual competitions.

Interval Sessions in Bushy Park

Kev Best is offering training slots from Tuesday to Friday 10:30am, 2pm and 6pm.

These sessions will last no more than 1 hour and will all be interval sessions in Bushy Park meeting at Teddington Gate. Those interested should email Kev Best to book a slot.  Please give as many availability options as possible and your current 5k time, enabling groups of similar ability to be arranged.
