CLUB UPDATE (August 2020) - TRAINING and COMPETITION..
The club has resumed training at the London Marathon Community Track (LMCT).
Some activity has now resumed with limited training sessions at the London Marathon Community Track (LMCT), however planned resumption of inter-club competition now looks unlikely this Summer.
Following agreement with LS185 (the management company at LMCT) club training nights resumed on Monday 13th July. This first phase of re-opening allows 30 athletes/coaches in the stadium at any one time training in groups of six on our club training nights of Monday and Wednesday 18:00-21:00. Athletes have to pre-book through their coaches. Sunday 10:00-13:00 is also available but so far there has been no demand for this time slot.
Following the club's consultation with LS185, and following Covid-19 guidelines we have now implemented our Phase 2 Plan for training.
On competition, the club is promoting a 2 x 100m races per competitor Open Meeting on Sunday 6th September. We are also looking at holding another Open Meeting on the weekend of *26/27th September which we hope to extend to further events (*subject to West Ham United home fixture at the London Stadium).
Having gone through the planning procedures to re-open for training and to hold our own open meetings we can appreciate the huge amount of work required to protect athletes and officials/volunteers. The majority of this is in the planning itself and we have consulted with our coaches/volunteers throughout. We would like to thank them for their contribution.
Details of our Phase 2 Plan and the accompanying Athlete's Guide. Please note that there are a number of restrictions in place. Our Phase Plan and Athlete's Guide was reviewed and updated on 10th August 2020, and is subject to a specific Risk Assessment.
All sessions have to be arranged in advance with the athlete's coach. There will be no walk-ins. Subscriptions have to be paid before training to ensure insurance cover.
England Athletics updated guidance on training within the latest government rules on meetings in public place and social distancing can be found here: EA Guidance on Training.
2020 Annual Subscriptions Fees
Following the restrictions on athletics set by England Athletics until end May 2020 and the cancellation of a number of competitions the club reduced annual subscriptions by 20% to the levels set out here.
The subscription year started on 1st April and subs should now be paid.
