Hello everyone. I hope you're all keeping safe and well. 

New Club Members 

Please join me in extending a very warm RPAC welcome to Ellen Chapman and Conner Wickens who have recently joined the club and to Alaster Smith who has re-joined. Welcome to all of you and I look forward to meeting you all sometime in the not too distant future. 

Latest Results

Ginevra set a new club age category record by running a 5k in 19:21 at the Lee Valley Velopark on Saturday. She was the second lady runner home, finishing just 1 second slower than the first placed runner. Great result Ginevra!  Malcolm continued his return to racing at the same event finishing in 27:10. Well done Malcolm! 

The Impact of the Latest Lockdown Restrictions

We are awaiting updated guidance from England Athletics in response to the Government's announcement on Saturday evening. EA are working with Sport England, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and other stakeholders to provide absolute clarity about the impact of the lockdown restrictions on our sport. It is worthwhile keeping an eye on the EA homepage, but the committee will endeavour to update you as guidance is issued. 

Training will take place within our Covid secure environments as normal this week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday we will have sufficient coaches to allow SENIOR runners who normally train on Thursdays to attend on a first come first served basis to a maximum of 24 runners. The 7pm session will be less intense and the 8pm session will be for endurance. 

Irrespective of any update from EA athletes can continue to exercise within the government guidelines from Thursday 5th November onwards. The government guidelines state "You can exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people you live with, your support bubble, or 1 person from another household" where "outdoor public places" include parks, beaches and the countryside.

  

Keep in touch

 It's more important than ever that we keep in touch with each other at this time. Stay safe everybody. Please let us know if there is anything you'd like to see in the newsletter.
