Club Announcement

Dear Members and Parents

Firstly I hope you are all well and keeping Safe and Sane.

Just a quick update on the latest guidance from England athletics re training/competition and UKA/club membership fees.

 

  1. 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).

These decisions have not been taken lightly and have been made in light of the continuing and real risk to life and to the NHS posed by the spread of the COVID-19 virus in England. 

2.The deadline for athlete registration and renewal of membership fees has been extended by UK athletics from 30th June to 31st August.

As a club we will not be sending any invoices to pay membership fees at the present time , we will keep you updated as we know we are all in unprecedented time

Resumption of Senior Endurance Training for ADAC Members

From October there will be 2 different Tuesday sessions, these will appear shortly on the club website. There will be a different format as we have realised that as a club, we are not being targeted enough in covering all the distances our athletes race. Previously we had 2 groups both covering the very broad range of distances from 5k to Marathon.

From October Mansel will be running sessions aimed at 5k/10k/Cross-country and Phil will be setting sessions aimed at Half-Marathon/Marathon/Cross-country. Both sessions are open to all seniors irrespective of race targets as you may want to do some over or under distance work, (just be aware of the broad targets of these groups). Any juniors who train with the seniors can only do the 5K/10K/Cross-country group sessions. The 2 groups will come together every 4 weeks to do a joint track session (this will be a faster session to maintain speed). The sessions Mansel sets will broadly be the same as previously, but Phil’s sessions will be very different. Please see the club website for details.

You will still need to book your places as per the Covid restrictions. Carry on booking your places for Mansel’s sessions as you have been doing and contact Phil by email for his. There will also be a link on the club website.

Club Announcement

We know this won’t be popular, but unfortunately following the government’s announcement this afternoon all club training is suspended until at least after Easter.

We will keep members posted with future updates via the club website and social media.

Given the government recommedations, we feel we have no choice.

Keep safe and well everyone.

Regards

Mansel.

Resumption of Senior Endurance Training for ADAC Members

We are planning to resume training on the track for senior endurance athletes from Tuesday 1st September.

Under current Government/UK Athletic guidelines, we are currently restricted to a maximum of 12 athletes in a group per coach. Phil is unavailable for the first 3 weeks of September so it is planned to hold sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, in September. The sessions will be the same for all 3 evenings to give everyone who wishes to do the session the chance to do so. Phil will be setting the sessions and they will all be ‘timed’ as opposed to running a set distance.

If you wish to take part in one of the sessions, please email me at training@altrincham-athletics.co.uk with your preferred evening for September and if one evening is oversubscribed, then the first 12 replies will get the place for the first week. All athletes will need to sign in on the night with a contact number. Sessions start at 7:30 to reduce congestion as juniors enter/leave. Please do not attend if you feel unwell and/or currently in a household with someone isolating. Remember social distancing at all times wherever possible.

Please bear with us as we try this out and be aware, we may have to make alterations as we get to grips with how this works in practice. We are hopeful of gradually increasing capacity and returning to a more normal training pattern. Thank you all for your patience during this difficult period. The attitude and understanding from all elements of the club has been exemplary.

Regards

Mansel
