IMPORTANT NEWS - COVID 19 Restrictions



Following Government announcements yesterday banning groups of over six people from socialising in England from 14 September, Sport England have now confirmed with the UK Government that organised sport can continue in England where COVID protocols including risk assessments are in place (and enforced) to ensure the safety of all concerned. This includes organised outdoor sports and physical activity events such as Park Run.

Further details can be found on the Sport England website and on gov.uk:https://www.sportengland.org/how-we-can-help/coronavirus/return-play




This means that Endurance GB organised rides and competitions can continue as long as our strict COVID protocols are followed; including all attendees completing a Covid screening form prior to the event, maintaining strict social distancing at events, and the wearing of face coverings particularly when 2m distance cannot be maintained. Additional ride specific Covid rules may also be in place. Spectators are not permitted at our events at present.


We remain in a volatile and unpredictable situation and the position remains under regular review. Updates on the current status of individual rides can be found on each ride schedule: https://egb.myclubhouse.co.uk/Events/Calendar


Thank you for your support, patience and understanding during these difficult times.
