Stamford Striders is a UKA affiliated club and today the UKA wrote to us with advice and information for running clubs. For those interested in the full document click here , bear in mind that this is in part superseded by more recent Government statements.
In summary :
The situation is fluid and could change at short notice.
The current advice to Striders is “As you are” - at the moment we are not advised to cancel our regular training sessions.
From a practical common sense point of view we ask that Tuesday Seniors gather outside at Borderville and not in the lobby.
Any decision to halt Juniors Sessions will probably follow any Government policy on Junior Schools.
As individuals we all come under the Government statement that "Anyone with a new persistent cough or high temperature is advised to self-isolate for seven days"
