The easing of lockdown will allow for small groups of runners to get together for outdoor training from today. We have decided to limit the groups to up 6 socially distanced runners whilst we ease back into the routine of training.
At last week’s AGM it was approved that the annual club subscription fees will be £35 per person, this includes seniors and juniors. Moving forwards this fee covers all track sessions (Tuesday/Thursday nights and Sunday mornings), so there should be no additional weekly charges to our members.
It was also approved that non-BAAC members will be allowed up to 3 individual sessions from the opening of lockdown. However, after three sessions to continue to run with the club at our scheduled sessions (Tuesday/Thursday nights and Sunday mornings) you will need to become a paid member of the club.
Furthermore, to improve the health and safety of our runners and to meet the current track and trace guidelines we are also introducing a logging system for individuals who attend. This will require runners to pre-book their attendance, so as to understand the numbers of people attending.
The chosen system is the RunTogether platform where moving forwards we will create and manage our weekly training sessions.
To do this, you will need a RunTogether account, this can be set up in a few minutes via the website the website or by downloading the RunTogether Runner App.
The RunTogether Runner app is free to download for both Android and Apple devices and is available to both new and existing RunTogether users. The app allows users to search for runs and clubs near you. View your upcoming and completed run details. View your group details and book on to group run sessions quickly and easily.
Initially we are not opening the runs up to non-Bradford Airedale runners, so you will need the direct link to the runs, these will follow shortly.
Like all new things, there may be the odd teething problem, however, having spoken to a number of other clubs using the app/website, they have assured us, it won’t take long for it to become second nature.
