The committee have decided when club activities may be able to resume, which will be when the country moves into alert level 2.
Following the published government guidelines we are looking to start some group runs once we are at alert level 2. It is likely these will be run on the following basis:
- They won’t be run from our clubrooms
- We will run from a public place or park, venue to be advised the week ahead dependent on the weather forecast. We will meet and break into packs that allow sensible social distancing. It is a personal choice and responsibility issue if you wish to join these runs. Do not come along if you are feeling unwell or feel uncomfortable meeting in these groups
- We are yet to confirm if juniors will be able to join in with these events. If so it is likely to only be the older juniors who have previously been members so we can manage the associated health and safety issues.
The committee have confirmed that there will be no charge or fee for a ‘social membership’ ie: you do not need to pay to join the club to attend the group runs mentioned above. This applies to existing and new members.
If members wish to maintain their Athletics New Zealand Membership they can do so when the clubnet portal is up and running by Athletics New Zealand. Members will need to register themselves for this and will need to pay the associated Athletics New Zealand Fee.
We do not currently have any information or confirmation of any Wellington Centre or National interclub events that may still be held this season. We will advise of any that are confirmed when they come to hand. If some of these are to be held the club would still like to work with members who wish to compete, particularly for the likes of road relays, we would need to discuss how any associated costs or fees are managed and paid at that time.
Feel free to contact a committee member if you are in doubt about any related issue. Meanwhile: keep safe and enjoy your running.
Note as mentioned in the previous note: Athletics NZ organises virtual races.
