It is with regret that Dorchester Athletic Club Committee has unanimously decided that all club activities, including training, competing and its AGM will be suspended with immediate effect.
The decision was reached in the best interests of all our athletes and their families.
Will all persons responsible for paying the athletes’ club fees please cancel their Standing Order payments with effect from 1st April 2020.
We wish you all the best of health and employment over the months ahead and look forward to your return when club activities resume.
"England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April."
We are currently undergoing a contingency planning process for qualifying races and will keep everyone updated as soon as possible.
We will be working with our partner runbritain to coordinate a communication detailing appropriate advice and guidance to road race organisers in the immediate future.
No emergency services will attend large gatherings so it is unavoidable that competitions will now be suspended until at least the end of April. We are in contact with event organisers to find suitable alternative dates within the competition calendar and the our cancellations page link is kept up to date: www.englandathletics.org/cancellations."
