Social Distancing advice whilst running

We would like to advise our members to try to do as follows, whilst out running:

  • From 1st June groups of up to six people, from up to two households, can exercise together provided social distancing is maintained
  • Keep two metres away from other people
  • Avoid narrow paths/routes including Canal Towpaths
  • Only overtake people if you can maintain a 2 metre distance, or slow down until there is sufficient space
  • Pedestrians have priority (just like parkrun)
