Implementation of new guidelines required for race organisers
In the UK all RunBritain licensed races are cancelled until 31 July. The reason for this is that Covid-19 guidance to race organisers on staging road or multi-terrain events that meet the Government guidelines issued on 10 July have now been produced.
It will be a condition of licensed races that they indicate that they have read the Covid-19 guidelines; have understood these new requirements and agreed to implement them as appropriate to their event ( access guidelines here ).
The Covid-19 guidelines will require:
- Race organisers to draft additional plans such as a Covid-19 Risk Assessment
- A number of measures to be introduced which may require extra resource in terms of time, equipment, personnel and budget.
- Additional communication with participants to update them on arrangements made by an event to mitigate against the risk of catching Covid-19
