Billingham Marsh House Harriers AC – Coronavirus Statement – 17/03/2020

We have received the following information from English Athletics:

“The UK government has advised that everyone in the UK should now avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to fight coronavirus. Whilst it has not issued any ban on public gatherings of any size either indoors or outdoors at this stage, the advice is to avoid non-essential contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.

As a result, England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.”

In view of the new information received all our formal training sessions will be suspended until the end of April 2020.

We have also decided to cancel the Whitsun Woodland Trail Race, and we will be informing all the relevant organisations involved in staging the event.

The welfare of all our members and their families is the priority of the club and the committee. We would like to thank everyone for their understanding in these unprecedented times.
