LAST WEEK OF OUTDOOR TRAINING

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. 

JUNIORS ATHLETICS

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.

CANCELLATION

Today's training Thursday 27 August is cancelled.

POSSIBLE CANCELLATION OF TRAINING 27 AUGUST

Please note that the weather forecast for the rest of today, Thursday 27th August is decidedly unsettled and rainy.  As we are now back training on the grass field, conditions could be very slippery and also we have nowhere to shelter.  If it is still raining at 4.15 this afternoon, I shall cancel both the Junior and older group sessions so PLEASE check here.  I have also posted this info on our private Facebook page.  If you know anyone who doesn't look at either of the places where I post info, please let them know, especially as I know there are a couple of new youngsters possibly coming along today. 

NEW TRAINING VENUE

Our allowed time on the track at Dauntsey's has sadly come to an end as they need to quarantine their Boarders prior to the start of their next term.  We are very grateful to them for the weeks that we have been able to use their facility.

For the next few weeks at least, we will be training on the Elias Sports Field in Market Lavington, just up from St Barnabas Primary School.  Please note that training will take place on THURSDAYS only.  New timings will be as follows:

Juniors 5-6pm

Older group 6-7.30p.

As it is a sports field, there are no facilities or access to water so make  you bring plenty with you.  Also, take note of the weather forecast and bring the appropriate clothing, hat, sunscreen etc.

There are still a lot of people who need to pay their club membership before the end of this month.  It remains a very affordable £10 per year which it has been since the club was formed!  If you know you still owe for it, make sure you bring it with you please.

Jacob, one of our Assistant Coaches has gone back to his Uni for his 3rd year so we are short of coaches and cannot accommodate everyone, especially whilst this dreadful virus abounds.  Those wishing to train MUST contact Deborah to book a slot as spaces are limited.  Please do not just turn up and expect to be able to train.
