Thursday Night Training Resumes 9th July 2020
Training - Thursdays 7pm @ The Royal Hotel Car Park
We're restarting training from this Thursday (9th July) but there will need to be some changes to ensure we
comply with social distancing and other guidelines. Please read these carefully and if you have any
queries don't hesitate to ask.
Parking: please only park in the Royal car park if you are intending to drink there afterwards,
otherwise please park in the Sett Valley Trail car park (free after 5pm) and walk over to the Royal.
Meeting points: please can the fast group meet at the rear of the Royal car park by the fence
along the cricket pitch and the steady group meet at the front of the car park.
If you're not sure which group to join you can lurk in the middle until it becomes clear.
Meeting time: please arrive promptly for 7pm so that people aren't standing around in the car
park for long and can quickly form into groups and set off
Groups: please ensure you form groups of no more than six. As soon as it becomes clear there
are more than 6 runners of your speed, you must split into two smaller groups and move apart to form
distinctly separate groups. Each group will need to be responsible for themselves, their route and the
others in their group.
Walking group: the walking group normally only consists of Geoff so he will be leaving at
7pm sharp. If you'd like to join him it might be worth dropping him an email beforehand so he doesn't go
Kit: full FRA kit and additional items such as a mobile phone, spare layer, first aid kit,
bivvy bag, emergency shelter are recommended. Carrying hand sanitiser and a face covering are sensible
precautions in case someone gets hurt and people need to get close to help them.
Afterwards: The Royal is open until 10pm on Thursdays. Groups of up to six can sit at the tables outside.
