Stay up to date
Check all guidance that has been published, especially concerning social distancing and hygiene and any athletic specific guidance.
Be aware guidance can change quickly and more restrictive rules may be applied in the future.
At this point in time athletics and running coaching activity can take place on a one-to-five (5) basis only (i.e. one coach and up to five (5) athletes OR up to six (6) athletes with no coach present). These individuals do not need to be from the same family household, but ALL must adhere to the latest social distancing guidance.
A coach can carry out a coaching session with up to five athletes and then coach another group of up to five athletes after the conclusion of the first session.
Coaches should not coach more than five (5) athletes at any one time.
Before leaving home
Follow all hygiene guidance including washing your hands.
Ensure that all arrangements have been made prior to leaving home so that any government advice on social distancing, as an example, can be maintained at any facility.
At this point in time only outdoor facilities may be used. Three Hills Sports Park is not open for athletes from Folkestone Running Club therefore runners should meet up outside whilst applying social distancing.
Coaches and athletes should ensure they are prepared and have planned for circumstances where injuries or other accidents occur, and they have mitigating procedures and plans in place to resolve the issue while maintaining all government guidance.
Ensure you have enough food and hydration for the session.
Be aware that changing facilities and toilets will not be open.
Take hand sanitiser with you.
Do not congregate before or after training, return home. Do not attend the session if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
NHS Test and Trace
We will keep a register of all attendees of training which will include their:

In the event of a member of Folkestone Running Club being diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19), we will share the register of any sessions that member has attended within the last 10 days with the NHS Test and Trace program.
You must notify the club if you are diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19) within 10 days of attending a training session.
