Phase 3:Increase in numbers permitted to train

Phase 3 of the easing of Covid 19 restrictions comes into effect on Monday, June 29. During this phase sporting activities can now recommence to an almost pre-Covid 19 level, the travel restrictions are lifted within the whole island of Ireland, total numbers permitted at a venue (Morton Stadium) are 200 to include coaches. From a practical point of view this means that the restriction on 15 per group can be increased to slightly bigger groups however all must be mindful that it really is not in anyone’s interests for Morton Stadium to be swamped with people looking to train on Tuesday evening.

In the interests of all it is not yet proposed to open the clubhouse. Toilets are available in the stadium. No showers at this time, arrive ready to train, and limit as much as possible congratulating in groups.

Please contact your coach to see if your group is back.

Please note the following:

Training for Clonliffe members continues in Morton Stadium on Tuesdays/Thursdays 7pm – 9pm, Sundays 9.30-11.30am.

Bookings must be made by the group coach

There can be no physical contact whatsoever between the members of the training group.

Social distancing of 2M must be strictly observed.

Please observe coughing and sneezing etiquette.

Please refrain entirely from spitting.

Wash your hands before you leave home to go running, bring a hand sanitiser with you, do not press any pedestrian crossing buttons and if you are stretching do not use a railings or park bench or similar to support you while you stretch.

Do not share drinks, be absolutely careful that your drink bottle does not touch against another athletes drink bottle, do not handle another athletes drink bottle, it is vitally important that cross contamination is avoided.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or flu like symptoms do not come to train, self isolate and contact your GP.
