PWAC – Kent Fitness League – CANCELLED

Sadly in light of the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and the guidance being given by the governing bodies all club Captains are of the opinion that we should cancel this seasons races. It would not be right for clubs to organise a race only to have to cancel it at the last minute due to a change in the situation as we have seen with people going abroad for their holidays.

Lets hope that the situation improves so that you runners can get back out there as a group.

The attached  documents have been updated to reflect the changes to EA Guidance dated 4th August.

Please read the 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. 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.

PWAC AGM – POSTPONED

Dear Member,

Our AGM was originally scheduled for the Monday 20th April 2020 and we were just about to send you the details when the full effects of the Covid-19 restrictions were announced and put into place. Therefore as I’m sure you will understand that we will have to postpone the AGM to a later date. As yet we are unable to confirm a date until we know when restrictions on travel and social distancing have been lifted.

Please rest assured that your committee and coaches are all still working hard behind the scenes to ensure the club keeps running, facilities are maintained, and the club stays up to date, with the aim of being able to hit the ground running (literally!) when we are allowed to resume normal daily life.

If you need any help or advice (training or otherwise) from the club and coaches during this difficult time please get in touch with us at info@paddockwoodac.co.uk your running (jumping and throwing) friends are still here for you.

Best Wishes

Liz Bignell (Duffin)

Club Secretary

To all adult athletes

Firstly, all coaches and committee members would like to wish everyone good health during these uncertain times.  The club would like to remind all athletes it would be wise to observe the social distancing guidelines during your training.   Although you are quite capable of arranging you own training plans, if anyone would like further advice or guidance, Richard Elliott and John Tilston are happy to support and if necessary provide schedules for your individual goals during the current ban on social gatherings.  If you require additional support please contact us via email, text or phone.  In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves and one’s close to you.  Happy running.

Regards

John

Updated Coronavirus Statement from England Athletics

The UK government has advised that everyone in the UK should now avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to fight coronavirus.  Whilst it has not issued any ban on public gatherings of any size either indoors or outdoors at this stage, the advice is to avoid non-essential contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.

As a result, England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.

Therefore, all our training sessions are cancelled until further notice
