Training times

COVID UPDATE: National Lockdown

We are suspending club training sessions from this Thursday until such a time as Government and England Athletics guidance allows us to return, good news is that the hard work the club did in getting the necessary procedures in place will allow us to return to training immediately we are given the go ahead. City of London will be closing the track after the final public session on Wednesday, reopening when guidance allows.

England Athletics issued the follow statement today:

(https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/latest-lockdown-restrictions)

We have today joined together with British Cycling and British Triathlon to ask Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden to permit certain sports activities to continue during the new lockdown period starting on Thursday [5 November]. Specific to athletics and running, this is namely small outdoor groups and club-led activity, which have been taking place successfully since June, and coaching sessions for young and disabled people. 

Your Committee will continue to work in the best interests of the membership and will keep you informed of any updates through the weekly club email (including a potential exciting alternative to the annual Boxing Day Run, watch this space!).

This is the training plan for Eddie's group for the next few months - please note, they may chop and change depending on group size and weather. If you have any suggestions, feel free to drop me a message: kani.hinshelwood@highgateharriers.org.uk

This is all a trial, so if a session doesn't work, I will make a note of it and make sure i alter it before trying it again. Let me know what you think and what you fancy doing!
