• Covid secure races: TRA race guidance

    For those that keep asking, we get our permits through the Trail Running Association. They in turn follow England Athletics rules (thus we get insurance through them) and they all follow UK government covid guidelines.

    For our races to go ahead we have to be allowed to by govt guidance. To gain our permit, we submit a covid event plan, a risk assessment, a lost/injured runners procedure to the TRA. You can view our permit summary details on the TRA website (we will show a permit number on each race webpage). Thus you can be assured that all our races are covid-secure.

    You can read about the TRA guidance we follow at https://www.tra-uk.org/organisers

    Lorraine Collins is our Covid Co-ordinator. (All events must have a nominated co-ordinator to gain a TRA permit)

  • Covid Cancellation Policy

    Covid Cancellation Policy

    If a race cannot go ahead due to covid, we will initially hope to hold the race later in the year, although a back up calendar has yet tbc. Else we will roll entries over to 2022. (Surely we’ll be racing more normally by then?!) Should you prefer a refund, we will deduct a £4 admin fee (it’s costing us to process these refunds)

    Please email companyofrunners@gmail.com with an appropriate subject header ie refund required and we will endeavour to process your email as soon as possible.

    Please bear with us if you need a reply- it won’t always be immediate-we all work in other full-time jobs. As I know you’ll appreciate, we are in an ever changing environment, thus guidance is constantly changing, thus our race plans change. Which is leading to lots work/admin for us.
