Following further restrictions on movement put in place by the UK Government on 23 March, UKA and the Home Country Athletics Federations have made the following updates to their previous statement issued on 17 March:
- Extending the suspension of all athletics activity in England to the 31 May. [Initially this had been agreed to the end of April]. This suspension includes all organised athletics activity in the UK, including all competitions, formal club activities, running groups, and all Education activity (coach, official, teacher).
- Strengthening our position on coaching activity – We are now mandating that all physical coaching ceases, and only be conducted via virtual means during this period. Bringing groups of people together to train, however small, can no longer be permitted under the strict ‘Stay at home’ measures implemented by the UK Government.
Please read the statement and advice in full here.
This means that resumption of all athletics competition, Jarrow and Hebburn AC training sessions, club activities, running groups and meetings, including the AGM, are postponed until June at the earliest.
