29 April 2020

With restrictions by the UK Government on movement in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 still in place, UKA working with the Home Country Athletic Federations, have made the following update to the previous statement made on 24 March:

The suspension of athletics competition within the UK has now been extended until at least 30 June. The decision has been made collectively in light of the ongoing UK Government restrictions and the need to give athletes, coaches, clubs, event organisers and officials clarity, advance notice and time to plan.

The wider suspension of all other athletics activities until 31 May will continue to be reviewed but not before a further announcement from the UK Government on the current restrictions, which is expected during the week commencing 4 May.

The suspension of all other athletics activities includes training activities, formal club activities, running groups, and any educational or development activity such as coaching and officiating. Any continuation should still be through e-learning and virtual means.
