We wanted to update you on the latest England Athletics advice as of July 7.
As some of you will already know, groups of 6 (or 1 coach, 5 athletes) are allowed to meet to train but still must maintain a distance of 2 meters and must train outdoors. EA has said that the relaxation of some measures from July 4 didn’t impact its thinking on how best to keep athletes safe.
Some athletics tracks have reopened. Mile End has not. Given the restrictions still in place the board doesn’t feel it is right to reopen the club house yet, and the formal weekly club sessions will remain suspended. We will continue to monitor announcements from the government and EA, and notify members of any proposed changes to the club circumstances.
On behalf of the board,
