Our Club Sessions during Covid-19

RUNNING // CYCLING // Walking in Huddersfield

Keep going
During Covid-19

We are all eager to get back to normality, but we are looking at things constantly and adapting how we can work safely together with our members. This page will give constant updates to our members and how they can train effectively.

As a club, and a committee, we have had a number of virtual meetings in the past week since the announcement of groups up to 6 could meet and exercise together. We have looked at many ways we could achieve this as a club and feel that for now, we must follow guidelines, but also take note from other established clubs in the area. After liaising with other clubs, our own members and our own meetings, we have decided that group meet ups and organised club meet ups are still a number of weeks away and we could not support this in good conscience.


For this reason, we are creating this page which will guide our members on the activities we can encourage, support and keep you motivated. This will be updated each Sunday to keep you on track with your training.


Our main focus is and always has been the safety of our members and our community, so as much as we are keen to get back to it, we are going to air on the side of caution and we will be monitoring this closely in the weeks to come. 


As are many others, we are trying to navigate our way through an ever changing and new situation. Our member and community support has been staggering and we could not be more pleased with the motivation you have all provided each other. 


Please keep an eye on this page weekly for new updates and how we are moving forward with sessions.


Thank you from all the Committee @ Marsden Racers
