Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Dear Club Member
Please see below details regading the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Based on the Government’s latest advice and guidance on the fast-moving situation, we have taken the decision to suspend all organised and supported club activities until at least the end of April.
This includes (but is not limited to):
Competitive events at all levels e.g. Weekly Time Trials
Saturday and Sunday Club Rides
All coached activities (e.g. run coaching, swim coaching, turbo training)
We have done this to take the necessary steps to protect the health and wellbeing of our athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators. This is similar to action taken by other sports clubs and also alleviates the risk of an additional burden on the emergency services at what is a hugely testing time.
We would strongly encourage all levels of the club community to join with us and the rest of the country in doing all we can to halt the spread of the virus in the midst of what is an unprecedented situation.
This was not a decision taken lightly and it is one we have taken following advice from British Triathlon, British Cycling and England Athletics.
Where possible we encourage you to keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
No emergency services will attend large gatherings so it is unavoidable that competitions will now be suspended until at least the end of April.
We will of course continue to follow and assess Government advice, and you can do the same via the following links:
