This is an update (17th March 2020) on the club position for all members.
It is with great regret that Wimborne AC has to announce the immediate cancellation of training sessions until further notice. This covers the track & field, endurance and road running sections of the club.
Over and above the government recommendations regarding social gatherings and “non essential group activities,the England Athletics advice states:
“…that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club meetings and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, social groups and running events should be suspended until at least the end of April”.
This is also underpinned by the age and medical conditions of a few of our coaches and volunteers so continuation is unsustainable. Further, for your information, other local athletic clubs have made a similar decision.
We value the involvement of all coaches and volunteers within the club and the participation and commitment of all athletes and runners. Your safety and that of your family is paramount.
We hope that despite current restrictions you will find a way of maintaining your fitness levels by whatever exercise methods you can sensibly adopt.
Further club information regarding this matter will be posted on the club website as will any information we get regarding the cancellation of matches and races.
