Coronavirus

Dear Members, it is with a heavy heart that in light of a recent statement from England Athletics, we have decided to suspend all club runs starting immediately up until the end of April at least. We understand this is disappointing news for club runs. If you organise your runs please be aware these will be at your own risk and not be endorsed by the club. Full statement from EA below. Stay safe everyone.
