BRC Coronavirus update

Dear BRC Member
The Benfleet Running Club committee have just met to assess the impact of the new Government guidelines on “Social Distancing”. We have decided to await the update that is due from UK Athletics (our Governing Body) tomorrow and issue a more definitive message afterwards, however in the meantime there will be some immediate changes. 
Junior Club
Due to the revised Government guidance and the availability of our fully qualified UKA coaches we have decided to put all Junior club sessions on hold for the foreseeable future. All of those involved in the Junior club are very saddened by this, however this now seems to be the most socially responsible way forward. We apologise that this message contradicts the message sent out earlier, but we hope you understand our need for fluidity at this difficult time.
Adult and Youth Groups
Nick and I will base the viability of taking forward Adult and Youth sessions on the new guidance from UKA due tomorrow. To give us time to work out if there are contingencies we are cancelling the Tuesday session (17/03/2020) and we will update you again tomorrow.
We are obligated to follow the advice of the Government and the UKA to provide a safe environment for all our members and to ensure that we protect the reputation of Benfleet Running Club. We are committed to send updates out via email, our club website ( and our social media channels on a regular basis throughout this crisis.
Our thoughts are with all our BRC community and their families during this unprecedented time of uncertainty
Nick and Graham
