The 2020 Ladies Bunk Barn has had to be cancelled but has been re-arranged for 2021. It will be a two night stay from Friday 18th June 2021 and leaving the barn on the morning of Sunday 20th June 2021. It is at Stackstead Farm near Ingleton and is limited to 20 places. The cost will be approximately £40.00 (plus food and hire of the swimming pool) depending on how many ladies attend. There are a limited number of spaces still available. Please contact Debbie Kirkbride on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend. A £20 deposit will be required to secure your place.
Due to the current restrictions on social gatherings, the Harriers Annual Dinner at the Imperial Crown Hotel on Friday 22nd May has had to be cancelled. This event and the Junior Presentation Evening will be re-arranged once the government gives the go ahead for events of this nature.
Training at Spring Hall remains suspended until further notice. Where possible, athletes and runners at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
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 further notice.
The decision has been taken in the interests of athletes, runners, officials, coaches, volunteers, supporters and the wider athletics and running communities. This decision is also in alignment with actions taken by the home country athletics federations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and is similar to action taken by other sports.
Where possible, athletes and runners at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
