Staying COVID-safe

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms, please don’t attend.

Pre-filled water cups will be set up on tables at drink stations. Competitors will need
to take a cup themselves from the table (cups will not be handed out).

Our volunteers will all be vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 2 vaccinations).
