The Hungerford Hares Running Club was established in June 2007 and has around 50 members.
Set in West Berkshire, Hungerford is a small historic market town, close to the Wiltshire border.
The town stands on the Kennet and Avon canal in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Our club base is at The Triangle Field, Priory Road, Hungerford.
We are a small, friendly, community-conscious club that caters for anyone who loves to run.
Come and join us!
We’re very pleased to announce that we’ll be resuming our evening runs from Tuesday 16th June 2020, 7:30pm starting at the Hungerford Rugby Club as usual.
This is following revised guidance from England Athletics.
It’s important, for insurance reasons, that we follow their guidance and advice.
They require that we carry out a risk assessment for our planned activities, which we’ve done, and is documented here.
You’ll also see a 1-page overview of the arrangements at that link. Please have a quick read.
The most significant part is that we’re restricted to running in groups of up to 6 people, maintaining a distance of 2m apart.
This means that we need to operate a “sign-up and book system” for Tuesday evenings for the foreseeable future.
To do this, if you want to run on this and subsequent Tuesdays, you need to sign up to the “RunTogether Runner” application:
Here for PCs
Here for Android phones
Here for iPhones
This allows the Run Leaders for each session to check and see how many RLs are needed.
However, for the time being, you can just Reply to this email if you plan to attend.
Sorry about the faff, again it’s hopefully just a temporary bit of admin we need to do before we get back to regular unrestricted club running again.
And – I know it’s obvious, but we have to say it – if you are showing symptoms of Covid-19 infection or have been in contact with someone displaying symptoms or diagnosed with Covid-19 within the last two weeks, you should not attend but should seek medical advice.
See you Tuesday – but remember to book first.
|2020-07-14||Social Run - road and off-road||Triangle Field (Hungerford Rugby Club)||7.30 pm||TBC - will have 5km and longer options||Tuesday|
Notes: Safety is a hares priority, so help us all, and please remember high viz kit.
Training Sessions are subject to last minute changes due to the weather and any other unforeseen circumstances, so watch out on Outlook / Facebook or here for announcements.
