England Athletics offer guidance update for coaches, leaders, athletes and facilities for restricted return to activity

 Following the publication of the new government guidelines on exercise, England Athletics have been working with UKA and other stakeholders to create three guidance documents for registered athletes, coaches and athletic venues. 

These procedures apply to England only and are based on government guidelines detailing the use of public spaces, outdoor activity and exercise:

1. Guidance for athletes and runners return to activity
2. Guidance for coaches and leaders return to activity
3. Guidance for athletic venues return to activity

Athletic outdoor track and field facilities should only open at the discretion and with the consent of the facility owner, provider or contractor and we advise that everyone abides by the government guidance to Stay Alert.

Chris Jones, CEO, says: “The safety and wellbeing of all athletes, runners, coaches and the wider community is at the heart of our guidance. We know that everyone in the England Athletics family, including RunTogether are keen to resume running and athletics activity as soon as it is safe and appropriate for them to do so. England Athletics recognises that wish but at the same time wants to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of everyone in the athletics community, facility providers and the wider community is considered as the first priority.”
