The clubs lockdown bingo, aimed at giving members a fun reason to get out as much as possible, is proving a big favourite. You can see some of the pictures people have submitted in our photo gallery
With reference to updated England Athletics guidance, a committee meeting was held on 04/06/20, to establish if Biddulph Running Club is in a position to commence offering restricted training activity.
In light of the restriction that only 6 people from different households can meet in a public place, it has become clear that it would be impossible to safely offer even a reduced version of Biddulph Runnning Club.
While this feels frustrating at present, our club has a responsibility to itself and to the public in general to follow GOV.UK guidance.
Further updates will be issued here as and when the situation changes.
It is now over a month since our club as we knew it was brought to an abrupt halt and life began to take an unfamiliar path.
This different way of doing things can be a challenge, so your committee of Biddulph Running Club would like to reassure you that even though we cannot meet to train, encourage and socialise together, the club is still here.
Human connection, in the form of all our members, is what makes the club the success it is, sharing the effort and the rewards.
There is no doubt that all of you will have been touched in some way by this virus, be it in our change of family life routine, loved ones or going to work. We also know that this isn't going to be over any time soon, so we must resign ourselves to the knowledge that it may be a while before things return to normal.
This isn't news I know, but a small gesture intended to reach out and say that you can be reassured that when we are through this and able to, the club will reopen and we will be ready to begin again. Your committee is still meeting (virtually of course) to keep the plans for the future ticking.
Also please remember we are still available to lend an ear or give advice if needed. We are able to be reached through the usual channels of email or social media.
