Hi Athletes, Parents, Coaches and helpers
It has been a while since my last update, as you will be aware the Government announced that we are going into Tier 4 from 31st Dec 2020. I have been liaising with Manchester CC on venue access and currently both Wythenshawe Track and Manchester Regional Athletic Arena (Sportcity);
Sportcity Manchester – all those athletes who train on Mon/Weds from 7pm with Mikey, Ian, Kes, Lance, Amari and Jack, training is only available outside for those under 18 years of age or on the Elite pathway with UKA. Please liaise with your coach before turning up at training as they will update you on sessions. Same training costs apply as prior to lockdown.
Wythenshawe training – Commences on TUESDAY 5TH JANUARY 2021 from 6pm to 7pm, SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY FOR UNDER 18 YEARS ONLY ON THE TRACK. Please note if you do not have a training pass it is £1 per session to train for all members, please bring it with you, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR COACH PRIOR TO ARRIVAL TO CHECK ARRANGEMENTS.
It is important that all athletes liaise with their coaches prior to arrival as we must be aware who is arriving for training due to ratio’s, especially for the younger athletes.
** NOTE SOCIAL DISTANCING STILL APPLIES TO ALL AT TRAINING SESSIONS**
Guidance update (updated 24 December) – Athletics & Running (englandathletics.org)
See current guidance and note when running you can only run with one other person if you are a senior and this is only outdoors in an open space and NOT on a track.
All Indoor Athletics, Road Races and Cross Country leagues/events have been cancelled until further notice. Please liaise with your coach on any competition as they will be able to advise you.
Take care and stay safe, if you have any queries do contact me either via phone or email. Thanks, I am sorry to have to email this news to you all and will update asap if any changes to our tier status with new info.
