Following the UK Government’s announcement on Saturday 19 December of new Tier 4 areas, further details have been released by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Sport England as to how sport and physical activity is impacted within this specific Tier:
  • Organised outdoor sport for under-18s (including those who were under-18 on 31 August 2020) and disabled people is allowed. Indoor sport for under-18s is only permitted for education or to facilitate childcare that enables parents or carers to work, seek work or take part in education.
  • Organised outdoor and indoor sport for over-18s is not permitted.
  • People can exercise outdoors or visit some public outdoor places, such as parks, the countryside, public gardens or outdoor sports facilities. They can continue to do unlimited exercise alone, or in a public outdoor place with their household, support bubble, or one other person.
  • Outdoor sports facilities are allowed to open and can be used by individual households, bubbles or two people from different households. This applies to outdoor track and field provision where it is open locally
  • There are no exceptions for disabled people taking part in sport or physical activity indoors.
  • Competition licences within Tier 4 areas are suspended.
I would like to thank runners, coaches, leaders, officials, administrators, volunteers, and parents for your continued support, patience and understanding whilst adhering to the guidance issued in accordance with the UK Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
I would like to wish you and your families a merry xmas along with a happy and healthy new year and hope that we can all be back together as a running community early in 2021.
On behalf of HAC Management Committee.
