Green light to return to restricted activity

Following the government’s announcement that East Devon will be in Tier 2 from Wednesday 2 December, England Athletics has confirmed that this gives the green light to the return of organised club runs.

Runs will be organised in line with our Covid secure environment arrangements in the same way as prior to Lockdown 2.  Our plan can be found here

For social runs the “Rule of Six” applies.

Redesigned website welcomed

The redesigned Axe Valley Runners website, launched this week, has been very well received by members and the wider running community.

The eye catching and easy to navigate design was developed by local Seaton company Blaze Concepts, supported by a number of members of the club.  Chair of AVR, Lesley Adams, said “we are very grateful to Blaze and especially AVR member and Blaze Director Wayne Tooze and web developer, Adam Wickett, for their expertise, help and advice.”
