BACK RUNNING AGAIN...

The regulations relating to "organised activities" have been relaxed, meaning groups of up to 15 people are once again permitted, provided we  prepare a risk assessment, and keep a record of attendees.    

We relaunched the FLJs again on Monday 22nd March.


Everyone will have to sign up in advance through the Spond app.   This way we can also manage group sizes.

Group 1 (and 2) will start back with 5km runs, at "steady " and "sedate" paces  


We will also have our "Back to 5K" programme.   Group 3 started with a 3km run group, and Group 4 a 3k run/walk group, and are building back up to 5k.

The main group runs will be on Monday and Wednesday evening at 7pm, and we will resume our hill reps/lamppost run on Wednesday morning at 6am, and a 5k group at 6am on Friday morning.

EQUALITIES STATEMENT

The FLJs are an equal opportunities group, and welcome all adults, regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation.


The FLJs provide an inclusive environment for a wide range of members.  Runners should treat each other and members of the public with respect.  No one should feel that they have to disclose personal information or explain any aspect of their lifestyle.


Runners will have differing levels of comfort and confidence about their ability.  Some may be nervous about participating in a group and others may require support to be part of a wider group.  As a club we recognise only positive encouragement and support, as well as tolerance and acceptance.

Should anyone feel that this statement is not the being upheld by us all, then please contact one of the leaders.
