SA suspends licensed events until July

scottishathletics has just confirmed that all licensed events due to be held up to 30 June 2020 have been suspended due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Their announcement follows on from those made by the Scottish Government on Thursday (23 April) concerning the wider process of containing and combatting the virus while adopting a phased approach to taking the country out of lockdown.

Many athletics events licensed by scottishathletics scheduled for the next few months have already been cancelled or rescheduled. Organisers of suspended pre-July events are asked to contact scottishathletics to let them know if they plan to cancel their event entirely or postpone it to another proposed date.

As part of this decision, scottishathletics has also confirmed that they will not grant licences for any events until July 2020 at the earliest. Given the need to continue following social distancing guidelines, no championship events will take place until August at the earliest.

The governing body also reminds all runners, coaches and supporters that in line with current advice from the Scottish and UK Governments, group training activities or face-to-face coaching should still not be taking place in any shape or form.
