Can you believe it, Notts Women Runners turn 6 in March! To celebrate an amazing 6 years, we’re going to turn our local parkuns Purple for the month of March 💜
We’ve created events for the parkuns we’re ‘taking over’ throughout Notts. We also have a lot of Graduations happening at the same time so please do come and support our Club by running with us, or volunteering to Marshall at the events and support our runners!
Our Fixtures Member has created ‘events’ for all of the parkruns we’re taking over on our facebook page, so just click on the event you want to attend and let us know if you’re coming! If you’d like to Volunteer then we’ve listed the name/contact email for each parkrun – you’ll need to contact them directly to put your name forward and they’ll be back in touch with you directly. If you’re volunteering then please contact them asap so we have enough time to ensure that each role is filled!
Members of our Committee will be in attendance at events so please do stop us, say hello and help us celebrate being Purple in style!
Throughout the summer, NWR will be holding monthly members-only Coaching sessions which will be more in-depth and targeted training sessions that move beyond Beginners and Improvers courses such as track-based speed training or specific running skills sessions. These will be £2.50 a session.
The first of these will be a track-based session on Thursday April 2nd at Carlton Le Willows school. To make it fair for all members who wish to attend, an email with the link to sign up will be emailed out on Sunday 8th March at 7pm.
The schedule for the remaining sessions will be confirmed in due course but we will be moving across the County to deliver sessions including track training in Bingham and Sutton in Ashfield as well as dedicated hill training at Forest Rec.
If you have any queries, please contact Lyndsey on email@example.com
** Covid 19 (Coronavirus) statement as of 16/03/2020 **
We are aware as a committee that the corona virus is a developing situation and we are following guidance from England Athletics, the government and Public Health England. As it stands on Monday 16th March there is currently no intention to have a blanket closure of NWR runs. However, we are aware that many of our runners and run leaders may be themselves in a high risk group or be in very close contact with high risk groups (family members, carers, work roles). Therefore, we are asking that each run is at the discretion of the run leader/coach as to whether it goes ahead. The run leaders decision is final on this and we ask that all respect this as they need to consider their health and families also.It is also of the decision of each member as to whether they attend and we would ask that all follow government guidance on self-isolation if they are showing any symptoms (new persistent cough and/or high temperature) or feel themselves at high risk.We would also ask that government advice is still followed such as the catch it, kill it, bin it campaign, washing hands regularly and limiting physical contact.We will update as regularly as this is a rapidly changing situation.As ever we as a committee appreciate that a lot of us run for mental health and it could be difficult times ahead so there is some useful hints and tips below to help.Any concerns or questions please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org
EA Guidance is very clear with regards to returning to running in that we MUST guarantee a ‘Covid secure’ running environment to run in group of more than 6. This means –
· Having a Covid Coordinator in place
· Full risk assessments in place that including minimising Covid transmission
· Pre-registration for participants inc. pre activity health questionnaire
· The register of participants must be kept for 21days (track & trace)
· Social Distancing (2 meters apart) MUST always be maintained
· Participants MUST be fit to run with no COVID symptoms
· If you cannot ensure you will remain 2 meters apart at any briefings masks must be worn
· Maintenance of good hand hygiene at all times and minimal contact of each other and equipment
