At Horsham Joggers, all our sessions are held according to the latest UK Athletics and Government guidelines for COVID secure sporting activities.

Covid-19 Officer
Julie Gallagher:

In Summary:

Before attending any Horsham Joggers event or activity, all participants, officials, volunteers, and spectators should self-assess for symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).

If you have one or more symptoms you should not attend the sporting activity, even if your symptoms are mild.

Also, the Club recommends that you:

  • Take regular Lateral Flow Tests.
  • Don’t attend club events if positive result.
  • If you are self-isolating, don’t attend unless you have clearly negative test results on days 5/6.
