To ensure our event is as Covid safe as possible we are implementing the following measures and guidelines which are based on our Covid-19 Risk Assessment for the event and government advice:
- All participants, event staff and spectators are encouraged to check for symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell) before travelling to the event.
- Participants, event staff and spectators must not attend the event if they need to self-isolate, for example because they have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, are required to isolate after travel, or because they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms.
- Participants, event staff and spectators are encouraged to download and use the NHS app to log in at the event.
- Participants, event staff and spectators should continue to maintain good hand hygiene, covering mouths/noses when coughing or sneezing, and we encourage you to bring your own hand sanitiser and wipes.
- Face coverings are no longer required by law, but the government recommends that people should continue to wear them in crowded and enclosed settings, to protect themselves and others.
- All directions by SHC marshals must be followed to ensure that we are able to maximise the available space to reduce and minimise the amount of time participants spend in close proximity to each other. Everyone is encouraged to respect individuals’ space.
- Shared surfaces and equipment will be regularly cleaned.
- Participants are encouraged to self-hydrate. Water stations will be provided where water will be in sealed containers and issued on a self-help basis. No disposable cups will be provided at aid stations.
We are really looking forward to putting on the event and welcoming you to the Surrey Hills Challenge on Sunday 26th September 2021.
