Return of the Cones - 29th March 2021
Following the Government Roadmap from March 29th it will be acceptable for people to exercise outside in groups of six or less, so we are planning to re-start our Monday and Thursday runs on this basis, just as we had been doing last year.
COVID-19 Most important - Please remember
All participants, must undergo a self-assessment for any COVID-19 symptoms. No-one should leave home to participate in this run if they, or someone they live with, has any of the following:
· A high temperature
· A new, continuous cough
· A loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste
Or they are self-isolating for any other Covid related reason.
Same Procedures as before:
Please ‘Vote’ for start times of 18:30 – 18:40 – 18:50 – 19:00.
We will have to ensure that we do not have more than 6 people congregating at the Start / Finish of the runs, so please make sure you arrive just before your start time, if you are early stay in your car / jog round the carpark etc. Help us avoid groups of more than 6 people.
Then once you are called to a starting cone, be ready to run as soon as we have 6 people in your group.
Once you have finished your run, again please avoid being in a group of more than 6.
Again we will not be under the normal VPRC insurance cover. Just running as individuals at our own risk. Therefore, everyone will need to agree to this before joining in.
Please use the voting option on this invite to indicate what Start time you want, and then arrive just before that start time. Please choose a less busy start time if possible.
And Do Vote - We need to know how many people to expect.
One of you will then volunteer / be appointed as Group Leader, and it will be that person’s responsibility to:
- Follow the Covid-19 Government guidelines within the group.
- Know the chosen route – not get lost.
- Keep the group together – setting an agreed pace for your group, mustering etc
- Avoid other groups. No photos of 20 people together etc
- Not get the club in the papers / Social media for all the wrong reasons etc.
