THREE GROUPS OF 6 – PLEASE READ IN FULL IF YOU’D LIKE TO RUN


This week we will continue with three groups of 6 runners (run leader plus 5 others). All groups will be starting and stopping in the city centre, and Andy has confirmed he will be opening the Fox for drink and food, with social distance measures in place, so please read in full if you wish to run….


The three groups will be split as follows: 1) the 5.8km city centre route (thru Brindley Place rather than along the canal) led by Darren 2) the 6.2km Bristol Rd/Pershore Rd route led by TP and 3) the 6.5km Jewellery Qtr route (amended to avoid the canals) led by me. If there is demand we will see if we can add on another run leader and route!


Please indicate your preferred route in the comments if you intend to run. We may need to move you to another route if one proves more popular than another, or do a ballot if we get more runners than places available.


We will have slightly staggered start times from outside the Fox (please spread out along the road to maintain social distancing). The longer Jewellery Qtr route will set off at 7:00, the Bristol Rd route at 7:05pm and the City Centre route at 7:10.


The Fox will be open for bag drop before your run – please ensure you maintain social distancing within the Fox if you use this facility kindly provided by Andy.


In the Fox afterwards you attend at your own risk, it is not part of the Swifts run! However, to assist Andy in maintaining the rules we will ask you to keep with your group of six runners at your designated table and not to mix between groups. Food will be provided so again please give an indication in the comments if you will be staying for The Fox after the run so we can let Andy know.

Covid additional health & safety notes:


– If you have symptoms – do not run!
– If you are from a high risk group – do not run!
– Maintain 1m+ distance from others in the group at ALL times – including any loop points (which will be minimised) and at any stops/road crossings etc.
– Follow respiratory etiquette – cover mouth if coughing/sneezing etc and use hand sanitiser


As always, you run at your own risk!


Plus:
– If you are wearing headphones please make sure you can still hear the run leaders.
– don’t just follow another runner across a road as you might get run over! (sounds obvious but you’d be surprised what we see as run leaders lol)
– be polite around other road/pavement users, we all represent the Swifts when we’re out as a running group
See some of you Thursday night!
