    Covid-19 Coronavirus update

    England Athletics have again updated their Coronavirus guidance (at www.englandathletics.org/guidanceupdate) to take account of the restricted return to athletic activities as permitted by the recent government advice, eg:

    • outdoors only
    • up to 6 athletes, or 1 coach and up to 5 athletes
    • jumps are now permitted
    • maintain social distancing
    • clean equipment, gate handles etc
    Some events might be permitted later in the year, with restrictions eg max 400m, 2 lanes between athletes.

    The England Athletics web page above contains links to documents with detailed information.

    There's a section on the England Athletics website about virtual events eg using an app to log your performance on a route, and comparing it with other athletes (see the Beds AAA 10k virtual race below).

    The Club has been given a window to use the Sandy track in a 2-hour window from 3 pm to 5 pm, and 1-to-1 sessions are currently being organised; this may increase to a possible 5 and 1 coach in the coming days.

     

     

    Beds AAA 10k virtual race - 13 June to 19 July

    The annual Beds AAA 10K race, which was provisionally planned for Friday 17th July 2020, has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.  In its place Beds AAA are staging a "virtual" 10k race over the same course, at Bedford Priory Park.  A course map and runner instructions are available on the Beds AAA website (go to www.bedfordshireaaa.org.uk and click on Road Racing). This free-entry race is the Beds County 10k road championships.

    Having entered the race and booked a time and date to run, record your run on Strava or a similar app, and email the organiser with your result.  At the end of the race window - 13th June to 19th July - full results will be published on the Bedfordshire AAA website.
