Update on CRC Covid-secure organised walks from May 17th 2021

The Government’s ‘roadmap’ for moving out of  England’s Covid-19 restrictions allows socially-distanced groups of up to 30 people to meet outdoors from Monday May 17th. This reduces the paperwork required  when planning an organised CRC walk- and we hope this will encourage more people to lead. Leaders will no longer need to complete and retain a written ‘risk assessment’ – the only exception relates to walks with more than 30 participants! In this case organised walks will still have to adhere to the regulations that Sport England have developed for outdoor recreational activities.

The guidance for organising official CRC walks of 30 or fewer people requires us to take the following steps:

  • Everyone taking part in a walk should familiarise themselves with the Club’s advice on ‘Taking part in a Covid-secure walk’, as posted on the Members’ section of the website
  • It is necessary to book in advance with the leader; the leader must retain contact details for 21 days of everyone taking part for NHS ‘Test & Trace’ purposes
  • Social-distancing must be observed before, during and after the walk
  • Please try and avoid particularly busy areas; leaders are recommended to carry out a ‘recce’ in advance.

Leaders can set the maximum number of people they are willing to lead and may like to sound out people to help as mid and/or back markers.

For the foreseeable future the Club will not be publishing a 4-month printed Programme, but will be posting walk details on the website. The situation will be reviewed during the summer; it may be possible to plan further ahead by the autumn.
