Coronavirus Update – 21 March 2021

It is hoped that, as from 29 March 2021, we return to the rule of six if not running under a club run and a maximum of 12 with a Leader on a club run.   To run with the club again  people will need to fill in and submit a new pre-run questionnaire which can be accessed through this link. These are links for the up-to-date risk assessments for independent runs and club runs.

Here is a link to the England Athletics Road map which is based on the Government guidelines and yet focussed at the running community.

Coronavirus Outbreak

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the safety of our members is our main priority.  In light of the announcement yesterday, we would ask that anybody with flu-like symptoms, a continuous cough, however mild or high temperature, should avoid the risk of spreading their infection, whatever that infection may be, by staying at home and recovering for seven days and do not come to club or attend an event. 

If you experience difficulty breathing, visit 111.nhs.uk and complete the online assessment.  DO NOT GO TO A GP, PHARMACY OR HOSPITAL.

If you are returning from a trip abroad, please visit www.gov.uk foreign travel checklist and follow the latest guidelines on self isolation.

Please remain mindful of the guidance on infection control (catch it, kill it, bin it), wash your hands often, do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean. 

Thank you for your assistance in helping to keep all our members safe.

Senior and Student Membership

Code of Conduct and Membership Forms are available from the bottom of this page.

The annual Senior Membership (18+) subscription for 2021/22 has been discussed by the Committee and a new membership year will start on 1 April 2021.

The club is affiliated to England Athletics (EA).
Members can opt (on payment of the additional £15 fee) to have their personal details registered with England Athletics by Bude RATs (as their ‘First Claim’ club). Such members will receive an EA competition licence number which entitles them to a discounted entry fee when entering events organised under a UK Athletics (UKA) race licence. (Note, this licence also runs from 1 April to 31 March so new applicants will receive their licence number during April. )

The club is also registered with ARC (Association of Running Clubs)
This means that any member can claim the race discount when entering races organised under an ARC permit (such as the Bideford Half Marathon, 10 km & 10 miler events organised by Bideford AAC)
