I am contacting Sevenoaks AC from the Kent Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre and I was hoping that you may be able to help us out this year which has been really hard for our charity and patients.
I was hoping you may have one or two of your members that would be willing to run for us at one of the popular fitness events as we have secure places at the:
London Landmarks Half Marathon on 1st August 2021
London Vitality Big Half Marathon on 22nd August 2021
Thames Bridge Trek on 11th September 2021
Royal Parks Half Marathon on 10th October 2021.
It would be brilliant if you cost post this on your social media groups and email to members as we would really love for you to take part on our behalf and raise some funds for all the work we do for people with MS in Kent.
All the best

UK Athletics in cooperation with the Home Country Athletics Federations have published updated safety advice for runners and joggers as well as suggested guidance for non-runners.
The advice was refreshed following some recent high-profile cases of harassment of athletes training in public areas. Any abuse or threats against athletes whilst training are completely unacceptable, and the safety guidelines published are to support athletes, recreational runners and other sports people exercising in public to feel prepared for any eventuality.
In addition – guidance for non-runners has been published to highlight how some behaviours may cause harm or upset, even unintentionally.
The guidance is here.
Following our Covid 19 opening-up plan, and in accordance with England Athletics guidance, we have re-commenced the senior Tuesday night 7 mile run. We have also arranged access to the Sevenoaks School track at various times on days when the school is not operating. Consequently, track sessions have now been scheduled for most weekends and some evenings in the school holidays. The club monthly handicap from the track resumed on 30 May.
Guidance from England Athletics dated 28 May on the return of athletics and running following the UK government roadmap is here.
RunTogether has put together some useful tips to help you run safely and ensure you get the maximum enjoyment out of your runs. See the advice here.
There are also tips on dealing with negative behaviour here.
