Wilberforce Road track still closed

Hello all,

Some of you will be aware that England Athletics updated their guidance on Friday 15th May:

https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/guidance-update-for-restricted-return-to-activity-for-coaches-leaders-athletes-runners-and-facilities/

On this basis, I have started a conversation with the University to understand when it may be possible to allow Cambridge and Coleridge Athletes access to the track again. They have many considerations including the safety and availability of their staff, so it won’t be an easy or quick decision for them.

While, unfortunately, the track remains closed for the time being, I will provide an update as soon as I hear more. Any access we do eventually get will initially be very restricted in line with the EA guidelines – it will likely be single-digit numbers of athletes at any one time.

As soon as I have information, I will share it. Please respect the university’s property in the meantime.

And don’t forget to send any of your lockdown training photos to media@cambridgeandcoleridge.org.uk so we can present a montage on the website.

Regards,

Keith Clarke

Chair
