IT’S (HE’S) BACK!!! The Monthly Mile, hosted by Chairman George, will re-start on Monday August 3rd. It is your chance for a Mile Time Trial. We will make a few adjustments so that it is Covid19 Safe but otherwise unchanged from usual at the venue on West Street. Please be there for 7:15pm to register with George who will then allocate you a specific start time which will begin from 7:30pm.
Over the last 4 weeks we have had 8 club sessions. Over 320 people attended the various outings. To date, 85 different members have appeared with 0 reported Covid19 cases. Typically, on a Tuesday we are now seeing 50+ people and over 30 on a Thursday which is the best for a couple of years. Thanks again for your attendance, co-operation and feedback. Let’s keep it going.
Please continue to be vigilant and enjoy yourselves. We are keeping a register of people attending just in case we need to help with any contact tracing. We ask you to let the Club Secretary know if, very unfortunately, you do test positive for Covid19.
Here’s the schedule for the next couple of weeks. We are making some modifications both to the type of sessions and to comply with the Covid19 Safe guidelines. For several sessions we are meeting ‘on site’ and the training location rather than at Blue Flames. This is because we do not want to have a 30-50 group of people jogging along the road. As in previous weeks, once at the session we will make things clear on the evening! Be there and find out!
