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 - 16 December 2020

Dear Members,

After midnight on Wednesday 16th December, The 32 boroughs of London moved into Tier 3 lockdown rules.

Our understanding is that the ‘rule of 6’ for meeting outside in a public place will apply once again. According to Government and England Athletics guidance, outdoor sports operating in a Covid secure environment remain exempt from the rule of 6, and must adhere to coach/leader ratios (for example: 1:12 for young people prescribed by EA).

Club sessions operating in a “Covid secure” environment, including regular coached sessions and self-guided group runs will continue during Tier 3.

We recommend you contact your respective club organisers and coaches directly if you have queries about specific club session details, timings and any venue information related to sessions under Tier 3.

As before, current planned activities are subject to change (or suspension) on short notice if UK Government or England Athletics guidance is amended further.

We continue to encourage members to use our informal networks to meet fellow runners (if you are looking for company) as long as the arrangement is in line with current lockdown rules.

On behalf of the board,
