UK Athletics, working with the Home Country Athletic Federations, is delighted that domestic competition is now underway however all competition must be organised so carefully and fully in line with all UK Government guidance. Listed below are the latest competition updates.

Road Racing

Under Covid 19 regulations, road running cannot be delivered in its usual format as social distancing must be observed at the start/finish and on the course. Therefore, to support road races commencing races should either be a time trial type format, rolling start or wave start. When promoting your competition make it clear in your material the rules and regulations for spectators, athletes and coaches. For further information, please visit https://www.runbritain.com/covid-19-uk-road-race-guidance
