COMPTON DOWNLAND CHALLENGE - EVENT POSTPONED:(Published 17th May 2020)
Please accept our apologies for not making a formal statement until now about this year's Compton Downland Challenge (15th Aug) but we have been waiting to see how the current crisis unfolds.
In the interests of the health and well-being of the marshals, competitors and the good folks of Compton village we have decided to postpone this year's race. We have not made any decisions about when we will next stage the event, but with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic still causing widespread disruption and concern we don't anticipate doing anything until next year.
We will be contacting the competitors who have already entered the race directly to let them know of our plans and giving them the option of holding over their race entry fee or receiving a refund.
Compton Harriers would like to thank you for your interest in our event, whether you are new to the Compton Downland Challenge or have been a regular competitor over the years
Thanks for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you to the next Downland Challenge. Until then enjoy your running and please stay safe, especially when planning your own runs.
CLUB TRAINING SESSIONS - SUSPENDED: (Published 19th March 2020, revised 24th April 2020)
In line with guidance given by the Government and England Athletics on avoiding all but essential social contact, the Committee have sadly agreed that the sensible decision at this point in time is to cancel official Harriers training and club sessions until it is deemed safe to resume by the above bodies.
In the meantime we will continue to communicate with our members through our usual channels and advise as soon as the situation changes. Stay safe, be sensible in your choice to continue exercising and please follow Government advice.
Please continue to exercise and keep fit, for both your physical and mental health over the coming weeks. Members who meet up during exercise should take extra care to avoid injury and please ensure social distancing requirements are met for your own and others’ safety.
If any member is self-isolating and needs help, then please use our social media pages to connect and ask for help.
Let’s hope it's not too long before we all meet up again and the virus has been defeated!
