Hemel’s Local Running Club


In consideration of the latest COVID situation and strong advice from the Chief Medical Officer with regard to the run up to Christmas, we have decided not to open the clubhouse for the next few weeks. Sessions will still be happening, but we will meet outside. We will keep this under constant review and update you all accordingly.
While being outside is much safer, please do consider taking a lateral flow test before coming the club, and please don’t run if you have any symptoms (& note it appears that the symptoms for Omicron are pretty much the same as a cold).
As always, your welfare is our primary concern. We will keep training and enjoying the benefits of running and being part of a club, but will do so as safely as possible.
Thanks for your understanding.
