Wishing all our Coaches, Athletes and Supporters a Safe, Healthy and as Happy Christmas as possible in these difficult times. We look forward to 2021 with hope that we will soon be back training and competing.
Yesterday I was informed of the dreadfully sad news that Richard Cawley, my other co-founder of our club, had died. He was diagnosed in the summer which makes his passing so tragically quick for those of us who knew him and for his wife and family. I know all of us send his family our deepest condolences. He was a lovely man who will be very fondly remembered and much missed. Rest in Peace Richard.
DUE TO THE PM'S ANNOUNCEMENT THIS EVENING 31 OCT 2020, OF A NEW NATIONAL LOCKDOWN NEEDING TO BE IMPOSED, THERE WILL BE NO RETURN TO INDOOR CIRCUITS OR JUNIOR ATHLETICS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
Monday Circuit sessions will restart on Monday 2 November 2020. Usual venue at Lavington School's Sports Hall. Time 6.30-8pm. Session fee remains the same as before £4. Exact money would be appreciated. Those wishing to attend MUST email or message Deborah to check availability as numbers need to be restricted during the Pandemic.

Please note that this week beginning Monday 5th October, will be our last training outdoor sessions for our Senior Monday and Thursday group. The Junior sessions have all ready stopped. The timings have been brought forward so will run from 5.30-6.45pm weather permitting. As soon as we get the go ahead to train back indoors I will post it here, but sadly I cannot see this happening for quite a while for obvious reasons.
PLEASE NOTE For those wishing to enter the Swindon Harriers Autumn Meeting scheduled for Sunday 18 October, please go to Entry Central to register. UKA have announced that the Age Groups will remain as they are until 31 October.
Please note that tomorrow, 24th September 2020 will be our last Juniors Session for the time being. Please let me know asap if you would like your child/children to attend. I have been in contact with the school regarding us restarting indoors but with the current restrictions, this is unlikely to be anytime soon. I will update the situation if and when we can restart.
