England Athletics Statement

Suspension of athletics competition extended to 30 June 2020.
Following previous statements on 17 March and 24 March, England Athletics, in collaboration with the other Home Country Athletics Federations and UKA, can confirm that the suspension period relating specifically to athletics competition has been extended until at least the 30 June 2020.
Whilst all licensed competition events in our sport scheduled up to 30 June 2020 are suspended, we will continue to review the wider suspension of all other athletics activity outside of competition (currently set to 31 May 2020). We will wait for a further announcement from the UK government in relation to the nationwide coronavirus lockdown period, expected during week commencing 4 May, before further reviewing and updating on the current suspension period covering all other athletics activity.
In the mean time and pending further updates from EA and the Government, the coaches and management committee are considering how a safe training environment at both the Track and the Clubhouse can be provided to members if non- competition activity is allowed.
This has been a very difficult time for us all in so many ways. Some members may have lost loved ones due to COVID-19 and others may be facing financial difficulties due to the lock down. For others the social isolation of lock down may have had an effect on their mental health. Please feel free to contact any member of the management committee in the knowledge that any conversation will be confidential. We at Hillingdon AC are here for you and will do our best to support members in any way we can through this challenging time.
