COVID Update 21st March 2021

Posted on 21 March 2021

The club is excited to announce that England Athletics has been given the go ahead by Sport England and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to return to outdoor training from Tuesday 30th March 2021.

Coaching at the athletics track can re-start from that date under strict COVID rules:

Anyone wishing to use the track outside club hours must book directly with Thames Valley Athletic Centre.

For full details of guidelines, requirements and target dates please read the England Athletics’ athletics and running roadmap.

 Important Information for Prospective New Members

If you/your child is a prospective new club member and would like to try out a training session or two, please visit the coaches page and contact a coach to find out if they are offering trial sessions and to arrange a pre-booked trial (please do not come to the track unless a trial session has been agrreed with a coach).

If you/your child is a sprinter, please read this post before making contact as the ability for the club to offer sprint training is severely limited at the moment.

If you cannot find a suitable coach on the website or you meet the criteria for sprint training please complete the Contact Us Form and someone will get back to you.

Please do not just turn up at the track as training sessions are having to be run under strict COVID guidelines and unplanned attendance cannot be accommodated at the current time.

As you are aware, the situation changes on a regular basis so please keep an eye on the club’s Twitter account and on this website for updates.
