Apologies for the late newsletter, it’s taken a couple of days to get back into the normal routine.
Getting back to running as a club
We are going to be running as a club from Tuesday 1st September. In order for this to be done within the guidance, it will be as follows:-
To begin with, only paid-up members of Ledbury & District Harriers will be able to join a club run. This is so we can test our systems and processes. This is all new for us and there will be things that don’t work or need to be tweaked so please bear with us.
To join a club run, please sign up on the spreadsheet which is available on the website and below.
There is a limit to 5 runners plus a leader for each group with the exception of the Fast group which is 6 runners in total (no leader)
Currently we have 1 group per pace.
If, after signing up, you find that you can’t run on that night, please remove your name so that others can sign up.
If you could sign up by Monday evening, that will allow our Lead Runners to see who is in their group.
Please read our Risk Assessment and guidelines to Runners which can be found here.
I have been informed by the Rugby Club that the toilets will be open but they would prefer if they were used for emergencies only.
Please arrive at the club ready to run at 6:45. The groups will set off in order starting with the Fast Group to avoid congestion on the Ross Road.
As a reminder the group paces and mileage are:-
Jeffers:- Run/walk group – about 3 miles
Gentle Joggers: 11:00 – 12:00 min miles – about 3-3 ½ miles
Easy Runners: 10:00 – 11:00 min miles – 4 – 4 ½ miles
Runners: 9:00 – 10:00 min miles 4 ½ – 5 miles
Sprinters 8:00 – 9:00 min miles 5 – 6 miles
Fast Group < 8:00 min miles 7- 8 miles
On 24th October, there is the Dymock Virtual 10K. There are 150 places available.
If you know of any other races taking place, be it Virtually, as time trials or actual races under the new guidelines, please let me know so I can add them to the newsletter.
I think that’s it for now. There will be another newsletter on Sunday with any updates to Tuesday’s run including a map where each group will meet at the Rugby Club.
Have a good week.
