Coledale Horseshoe 2021

*COLEDALE HORSESHOE*

This years race is once again sponsored by Pete Bland Sports and will take place on Saturday 25th September 2021.

COVID

Runners are advised to bring a face covering to all races as the Government recommends that people should continue to wear them in crowded and enclosed settings (such as registration or prize presentations indoors) to protect themselves and others.(1) Runners exempt from wearing a face covering must contact the Race Organiser well in advance in accordance with the guidance below (here) to establish whether arrangements can be made to accommodate this.

Participants must continue to self-assess and not attend any race if they are showing any signs of Covid-19 symptoms:
a high temperature
a new, continuous cough
a loss or change to sense of smell or taste
Participants are continued to be advised to practise good personal hygiene at all times (including use of 70%+ alcohol hand sanitiser) - before arriving, at registration, when using toilets (if provided), when entering checkpoints, leaving checkpoints, etc.

Guidance for Members
This is an extremely challenging time for organisers and you can help by adhering to these measures.

Failing to follow this guidance undermines the case for our safe sport to be allowed to take place. Please respect Race Organisers' requests to ensure everyone feels safe.

Self Sufficiency
In the true spirit of fell running, we continue to encourage self-sufficiency :
Bring your own face covering (a doubled-up neck gaiter will suffice) and hand gel (70%+ alcohol content)
Carry these with you in your race kit in case of emergency.
Carry your own food and water where possible.

If such a device is used in an emergency situation then that competitor should retire from the race and declare themselves non-competitive. The use of such a device to display distance travelled, time, speed or altitude will be allowed, as will recording of an actual route for post-race analysis.
