Following on from new advice announced yesterday from England Athletics, we are pleased to say that we will be slowly starting to organise events again. These events will be very different to usual, with no more than 5 attendees, and strict social distancing being stuck to, but due to them being held outside, with no physical contact needed, we feel that it is safe to start up again.
We will be announcing dates soon, but as you can probably imagine, there are a lot of new, ever changing circumstances to plan for. These events will not be direct replacements for past ones that we have had to cancel, as in most cases we have to gain permits from land owners, which can take anything up to 3 months. So in the meantime, we will be running events where there is a short turn around time, where we will not be putting you or land owners at risk, and where we will not be using places that will be busy with an already increased number of visitors.
If you have a deferred place from a previously cancelled event, you are welcome to swap to one of these new events in a different location, or wait until we are back at the original one if you prefer. If you do see an event you would like to defer to please email us at email@example.com, and we will do our best to give you priority.
Thank you, your support and understanding during this very difficult situation for everyone, has been very humbling, and we want to do our best to fulfill our commitment to you as customers, whilst keeping you as safe as possible. If you have any comments or concerns about the restarting of events, please feel free to contact us at the email address included above.

On a personal level we can’t wait to be running on the trails with you all again soon.
