After the months of isolation due to the Pandemic where many runners still tried to get out and exercise and run in many different ways, by themselves or with a friend and in the last month or so taking on different virtual challenges like 42km in 42hours, 61km in 42hours, Virtual Mothers Day Classic, HAS Virtual relay, GVRAT1000k etc. we are finally starting to get back to a more normal situation and now over the last 2 weeks, Runners Club members started to return to club runs via weekly virtual runs where members are advised of the track and distances at the start of the week. Then it is up to members to complete and time there run sometime during the week, not in large groups and making sure social distancing rules are followed and then forward a time and distance / number of laps to Michael Sharp before 5pm on the Sunday.
