In these uncertain and frustrating times of COVID-19, it can be difficult to stay motivated to run. Thankfully government guidelines still permit us to partake in one form of socially distanced exercise.
Here at Brighton and Hove Frontrunners we are continuing to run – albeit alone, but checking in with each other on social media. We also have training tips and our very own ‘selfie challenge’! There has never been a better time to put on your running shoes.
Check out our social media to find out more about how we are continuing to run safely.
As you are aware the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all major running events. Following England Athletics guidance we are cancelling all training and race meets for the time being.
Also, in light of guidance issued by the UK Government regarding public gatherings, the commitee has also taken the decision to cancel our bi-monthly social events until further notice.
The situation is changing rapidly so please see our social media feeds and website for any updates, and if you have any further questions about this please email us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are now officially one year old! This week marked our first year of the club and to celebrate we spent Sunday at the pub enjoying a roast (sadly the beach BBQ was not possible due to the weather). Here’s to the next year and beyond.
As part of the Trans Pride celebrations last weekend, the festival held their first fun run on Sunday 21st July. Some of our Frontrunners were proud to take part and join in the fun – a fantastic effort all round (especially given the night of celebrations on the Saturday night before!).
The event also marked the end of the Couch to 5K course run in conjunction with Trans Can sport, who are dedicated to transforming the wellbeing of trans people through physical activity. The course was run by one of our leaders in running fitness, George. Well done to George for leading and many congratulations to all of the graduates – hopefully this marks the start of a strong relationship with Trans Can sports and the fantastic work they do. We are hoping that we will also have some new Frontrunners joining us as a result.
