It had been hoped that the Couch to 5k and 10k programmes may have taken place over the summer. However, it's now clear that restrictions will be continued, at least in part, until mid-August.
Couch to 5k: The autumn block is due to start on Saturday 17 October, which is potentially 9/10 weeks after the end of restrictions. We could plan for a summer block, starting on Monday 10th or 17th August, and graduating on 3rd or 10th October. If necessary, we could defer the start of the autumn block by one week.
10k: The summer block was due to run from 5 July until 30 August. There is normally no Autumn block of the 10k programme. We could, for this year only, plan a 10 block, starting on Sunday 9th or 16th August, and graduating on 4th or 11th October.
In both cases, the decision on whether to proceed with the additional blocks would have to be taken with consideration of advice from the Scottish Government and the sporting authorities.
