** CORONAVIRUS UPDATE AS OF 1st June 2020 **

**Corona virus guidance as of 1st June**

Over the last 48 hours the government guidance has changed in relation to being able to meet in groups of up to 6 outside your home. Following on from this England Athletics have also released guidance which you can find on the link below. This explains that clubs can start to meet in groups of up to 6 to train observing social distancing and hygiene measures.

We have discussed this as a committee and concluded that as we cannot fulfill both these guidelines and our inclusive ethos of everyone is welcome at our runs, we will continue with no club runs until further guidance is released. This includes any runs from our normal meet points on our normal nights.

We are aware that some people will want to meet in groups of up to 6 to run but we ask that these are not arranged in our sub groups as it could invalidate our EA insurance and cause confusion amongst runners. Of course we ask that you are also following:

Keeping social distancing of 2 meters between each runner
Regularly washing and sanitising hands
Keeping within your limits and consider health and safety implications of your run for example if first aid is required out on a trail.
That you are still following our inclusive ethos of not leaving anyone behind.
Not meeting in groups of more than 6
Not hanging around before or after running and make your way home swiftly (make it a chatty run on the way round instead)

As ever please respect everyone in this as not everyone will be ready for this next stage.

NWR Help During Suspension

We encourage you to continue running and exercising during this difficult time but please respect our announcement about the cancellation of all NWR runs and do not gather at our usual meeting points on an unofficial basis. This is to protect you, your families and the wider community.

We have got lots of challenges and virtual ways to keep spirits high including virtual challenges, best/worst/funniest race photos, caption this photo, alphabet runs, funniest Strava route challenges and how we celebrate our birthday to name but a few while we are apart!

If anyone has any questions, please contact any of the Committee, your Run Leader or NWR Welfare on nottswrwelfare@gmail.com.

Notts Women Runners is an inclusive, friendly group for ladies across Nottinghamshire. What started as a couple of friends who wanted to find someone to run with has become Notts largest England Athletics affiliated running club. But what makes Notts Women Runners different from other running clubs is their focus on getting complete beginners out running and loving it and all totally FREE! 

You’re never too old, too large, too busy, too nervous to run; our members are a testament to that.

Of course if you’re already a runner but fancy some new running buddies, fast or slow, we can help.
