Relaxation of Rules for Using the Track

As stated in my email of 12th July the attached  documents have been updated to reflect the changes to EA Guidance dated 7th July. It is now permissible to have multiple groups of 6 at the track in any one session. In our environment this translates to:

  • One middle distance and one sprints/hurdles OR Two Sprints/hurdle groups
  • Plus, a throws group, a long jump and a high jump group at each session.

Please read the attached documents which describe the rules and regulations from EA and the Government that are applicable to PWAC together with some of our own that we have had to impose. Please read the overview document and then for more detail refer to the full document and follow the link to the EA website.

The main track gate is fitted with a combination padlock. Please lock the gate after entry and exit to prevent unauthorised access. When making a booking you will be told the code for the combination padlock. If you have any queries regarding the booking system please email these to mike.ridger@outlook.com

Please ensure you follow the sanitising rules, these are for yours and others safety.

Kind regards,

Richard Harris

Volunteering At The 2019 Virgin London Marathon Water Station

For the 2019 Virgin London Marathon (VLM) the event’s organisers London Marathon Events are implementing some new rules which include no under 14year olds and a new online registration system for all volunteers.

The new rules and regulations are a key part of improving safety and security at the event, The online registration will enable VLM to communicate details and updates to all Volunteers more efficiently and help them (VLM) be accountable for all  the volunteers working at the event.

Each individual will  be asked to fill in their OWN details as well as select their own clothing size and  enter any other specific / personal details the event may require.

Please be advised that you will also be asked to submit a photo that meets the specifications detailed in the system (passport style), if not you will need to repeat the process.

Facebook profile pictures and low quality photos should not be used!

Once volunteer groups are signed up onto the system VLM will be able to allocate you to a specific role, hopefully the Mile 22 Water Station

If you, your family members or any friends would like to Volunteer and help Team PWAC at this year’s VLM please email me at the email address below and I will send you the link to enable you to enter your details.
