Bourton Roadrunners Club has adopted the latest Covid-19 related advice received from England Athletics, issued today (17th March), regarding face-to-face activity, and its committee has agreed that with immediate effect all club training sessions, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, running groups and social events will be suspended until further notice. Prior to receiving that advice some members took part in the following two events last weekend.
Gloucester 20 miles – 15th March 2020
