Following the announcement by the First Minister on Monday 4th January the instruction is from 00:01 on 5th January to midnight on the 31st January is to stay at home and only travel for essential purposes e.g. work, food shopping, care giving etc. This is being made a legal requirement and will be enforceable in law.
Further to this our governing body Scottish Athletics have advised all clubs in Scotland that under 11s aren't affected by this change and anyone 12 years and over can exercise outdoors with one other person from one other household but you must follow the physical distancing rules. However as a further measure Scottish Athletics "STRONGLY recommend that ALL formal Club and Group activity is suspended from 00:01 on 5th January 2021 to midnight on the 31st January 2021".
Therefore Calderglen Harriers have decided that ALL training sessions are cancelled with effect from today, Tuesday 5th January. This decision has been taken to comply with the new government directives and will be in force until further notice or at a time when restrictions are amended.
This instruction is applicable to ALL Calderglen Harrier athletes regardless of age or ability. This decision has been taken to protect all athletes, coaches and volunteers given the current transmission rate of the new strain of the virus. We will keep you informed of any further changes but in the meantime, please do all you can to stay at home and stay safe.
