Happy New Year to you all. Let’s hope that 2021 will be a big improvement on 2020 and that we will get backing to running as a club and doing some races and parkrun again.
As we are currently in Tier 3 (as of the 2nd January), we are still able to run in our groups of 6. Please make sure that you follow the guidelines and keep everyone as safe as possible.
The weather has also taken a turn for the worse so please be aware that if it is very icy/snowy, it may be decided to cancel the runs at short notice. Please keep an eye on Facebook and I will try and send out a message if this is the case.
