DUE TO COVID AND GOVERNMENT CURRENTLY CLUB NIGHTS ARE “RUNNING” A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY

Club runs are resuming on Monday the 29th of March (Subject to government guidance).  We are using the system on runtogether to book on the runs as before (see previous email for a reminder). The sessions are bookable now. Keep an eye on Facebook and the website for any last minute updates. 

Track sessions are starting up again with our coaches – both Junior sessions and adult sessions. The same booking system is used and there is a charge of £2 for adult track session and £1 for junior track session.  

Please make sure you have a wristband and ice tag for your runs. If you have not picked up your wristband yet, then contact membership@lawleyrunningclub.co.uk 

Because of social distancing rules the club runs meet at different locations. The same structure has tried to be maintained – hills/speed work on a Monday, First Wednesday of the month – 10 miler, friday social run, and the pace bands for groups remain the same. Any questions email communications@lawleyrunningclub.co.uk
