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 - 21 December 2020

Dear Members,

Following the latest announcement on Saturday 19th December, London and much of the South East of England is now in Tier 4. This is broadly equivalent to the national restrictions which were in place in England in November.

According to Government and England Athletics guidance, leisure facilities (which includes Mile End track) must be closed. Organised outdoor sports under COVID secure measures for Under 18s only are permitted.

For our junior members (Under 18), 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 4.

Groups of 6 are no longer permitted, as individuals can only meet one person from another household in an outdoor public space. Therefore, all Club sessions for senior members will be stopped for the foreseeable future whilst London is in Tier 4.

Any current planned activities are subject to change (or suspension) at short notice if UK Government or England Athletics guidance is amended further.

We continue to monitor developments to keep you updated, and 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 tier rules.

Look after yourselves and those close to you.

On behalf of the board,
