Latest update regarding training in relation to Covid 19 – 16th March 2020

For now, training will continue for Medway & Maidstone AC at both Medway Park and Sutton Valence.

We will be keeping a check with UKA and EA (our sports governing bodies) for advice or instruction with regard to Covid 19. SV will keep a check with the school and MP will keep check on any updates from the council. 

As coaches, volunteers, parents and athletes you are all able to make individual choices regarding attendance. If coaches are unable to attend, please keep in contact with your groups regarding training.

Below is the statement from UK Athletics:

UK Athletics is following UK Government advice concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to monitor all developments.

UK Athletics’ priority is to ensure the health and safety of all athletes, coaches, volunteers and members of staff and will work closely with the Home Country Athletic Federations on the matter and act as guided by UK Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation.
