England Athletics advises suspension of all face-to-face activity
England Athletics has today (17 March - 9am) issued advice 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.
This follows the UK government's advice on avoiding “non-essential” travel and contact with others to fight coronavirus. England Athletics says that whilst the government 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.
