Pennine Fell Runners

Training - Thursdays 7pm @ The Royal Hotel Car Park

Thursday Night Training Resumes 9th July 2020

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 without you.

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.
