"In response to Bedfordshire being placed in Tier 4, and the rapid rise in cases locally, we have decided to suspend all training activity both at the stadium and in public spaces. Please adhere to Government  guidance when training on your own in public spaces.  We will keep this decision under review as the situation develops."

Public Space Covid Secure training is currently suspended due to tier 4 restrictions.

In addition to training at Bedford International Athletics Stadium, and in line with England Athletics guidance, Bedford and County is now offering Covid secure training in a number of selected public spaces.

Bedford & County Athletics Club - Wheelchair Racing have been putting on twice weekly virtual sessions for our athletes during lockdown. Normally training would take place at Bedford International track and at Biggleswade AC track in Sandy in the absence of this the coaches have helped organise rollers for our athletes so they’re able to train indoors statically and for those that don’t have a roller the chair is set up on bricks in the garden and tethered. The sessions are held via Zoom and consist of a weekly shorter sprint session consisting of short burst and fast pushes and a longer hour and a half session designed to increase endurance.

This is Rebecca Dean - the Wheelchair section's newest recruit.  Howard Darbon's group is now up to five, and doubtless will continue to grow.
