Victoria Park Harriers and Tower Hamlets Athletics Club

Friendly east London club for athletes of all abilities

COVID-19 modified club sessions update - 31 July 2021

COVID-19 update - 4 November 2020

Dear Members,

Following the most recent UK government announcement, it has since been confirmed that no club activities are exempt from the latest lockdown restrictions (effective from 00:00 on Thursday 5th November and expected to remain in place till at least Wednesday 2nd December).

There will not be any access to the clubhouse in Victoria Park or the track facilities at Mile End, both venues will be closed until further notice.

All club sessions for our senior and junior athletes across our ‘road & XC’ and ‘track & field’ activities will cease as at 00:00 on Thursday 5th November until further notice.

Going forward, we will review any further guidance released by England Athletics or the UK government, and look to advise members whether we are able to restart any club activities.

In the meantime, we encourage any members to use our informal networks to meet a fellow runner (if you are looking for company) as long as the arrangement is in line with current lockdown rules, allowing a maximum of 2 members of separate households to meet for outdoor exercise.

On behalf of the board,
