 All Members and Parents

England Athletics have issued a statement today on the Coronavirus, advising clubs to avoid all face to face activity, including training sessions and competitions until at least the end of April. (See statement below).

LMAC will follow this advice, and so all club activities will cease until then.  This is a tough decision, but is in the best interests of our members and families.

 

Although we may not be meeting face to face, it's important that we don't lose touch with each other, and the committee will be circulating regular messages.  We aim to make these messages member-focussed. If you have any ideas for these messages or if you wish any further information, please get in contact.

 

We're living in strange times, but we will we will get through this.   

 

LMAC Committee.

 

 

 

Statement From England Athletics

 

The UK government has advised that everyone in the UK should now avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to fight coronavirus.  Whilst it has not issued any ban on public gatherings of any size either indoors or outdoors at this stage, the advice is to avoid non-essential contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.

 

As a result, England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.

 

The decision has been taken in the interests of athletes, runners, officials, coaches, volunteers, supporters and the wider athletics and running communities. This decision is also in alignment with actions taken by the home country athletics federations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and is similar to action taken by other sports.

 

Where possible, athletes and runners at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

 

England Athletics will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to our sport in the coming weeks. We appreciate that the current situation will undoubtedly place our member clubs in a difficult situation and we are working with UKA and the other Home Country Athletics Federations on the best way to help alleviate the situation and will update you as plans evolve
