Summary: Whilst England Athletics allow us to run as larger groups still, during the stricter Birmingham lockdown we will go back to smaller groups of 6 as it’s easier to maintain social distancing. We do have a few run leaders available this week but we might not have enough for everyone that wants to run so will need to do it on a first come first serve basis, based on comments on here. So please let a run leader know if you wish to run this Thursday. We will then allocate groups on the day.
If you haven’t already completed the 2020 Swifts Membership form you will also need to have done that at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/V65V2NY
All groups will be starting and stopping in the city centre at The Fox. The Fox will be open for bag drop before your run. The groups will setoff at 7pm. When gathering inside/outside The Fox please maintain 2m distancing! You must keep in your running group of 6 in the fox.
In the Fox afterwards Andy will kindly be providing some refueling! 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 a group of 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 2m 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!
