PLEASE CHECK THE PAGES DOWN THE LEFT HAND MENU FOR LATEST NEWS ON EACH DISCIPLINE.

 

Whilst the Bedfordshire 10K has been cancelled as a physical race for this year we have organised and formally licenced a virtual race that can be run between 13th June and the original race date on 19th July.

FULL DETAILS ARE ON ROAD RACING

CORONAVIRUS – COVID 19 UPDATE 14th JUNE

UPDATE IS:

All the East of England Competitions have now been cancelled i.e. Individual, Hibbard/Bemax/Peterhourse Trophies and the combined

Also the SAL/EYAL/EAL and YD leagues have been cancelled

The current England strategy for competition is that any restart from around the middle of July would be for local intra-club matches and Opens. In Bedfordshire we would look to schedule the county champs and the Open potentially over several dates and with a focus on Track, jumps and throws at each individual meeting.

Training can now happen in socially distanced groups of six according to government guidance but many tracks as they re-open are likely to have individual protocols. With the furlough rules relaxing in July to allow part time work it may make some level of re-opening more financially viable for tracks

Finally the ban on road races has been extended until the end of July and will continue to be reviewed
