Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update 2

MONRUN:

After careful deliberation we have decided to temporarily cancel BLTR MonRuns until further notice. We encourage all members to continue with BLTR Virtual MonRuns, adding the hashtag #BLTvrun to your post on the BLTR Members Facebook Group. But, let’s make things more interesting, shall we? From your posts in the member group, we will choose a photo each week to feature on the BLTR Instagram and main BLTR Facebook page. Put on your creative thinking caps!

Social Distancing on the Trails:

Now that the warmer weather is here and many are looking to the outdoors to relieve stress, social distancing on the trails can be difficult. If running with another person, please adhere to social distance measures (6 feet apart). When approaching other trail users please pivot to single file so all can maintain a safe distance. We recognize other trail users may not be doing this but we can do our part.

If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the board. Let’s stay active, stay healthy, stay 6 feet apart and #washyourhands!

Sincerely,

Craig Durling

Are you stressed out about social distancing? Have you lost touch with your inner runner? Are you feeling discouraged, frustrated and a little like a couch potato?

Understandably, we are hearing many events are cancelled. And it’s likely more are coming.

Fortunately, our virtual run is here to lift your running spirits!

Even though we won’t all be together at the same place and time, we’ll run this knowing we are supporting each other to stay healthy, active and strong. Please join us.

BLT Runners – Coronavirus/COVID 19 Update

The BLT Board of Directors is monitoring this situation very closely and following all up-to-date government recommendations. We are committed to the health of our members and the general public and will make all decisions during this time with that in mind, while also being mindful our members gain a great deal from group participation.

  • To that end:
    Jog and Joes will be cancelled until further notice.
    The end of the month BLT social will be cancelled for March. April’s social will be evaluated at a later date.
    The annual Reboot Run now will be a virtual run, with a tentative date of March 28th through 29th for completion. This will be a 25-minute individual run with free registration through Race Roster. All who complete the run will receive a virtual medal. Please keep an eye on the BLT page for updates.
    The start date of spring speedwork will be evaluated as this situation plays out.

MONRUN – Our Monday Group Run
We suggest:

  • Do Monrun as a virtual run and post in social media using the hashtag #BLTrunners, #monrun and adding #BLTvrun in all your virtual run posts.
  • The option to attend Monrun in person will continue due to it being outside.
  • All members who have traveled outside of the country within the last 14 days or who have even mild symptoms of any illness are asked not to participate in-person.
  • We will not do the traditional group photo to adhere to social distance guidelines.
  • We also ask that you be mindful of the recommended distance for precautions (2 metres) when speaking to other members and please, no hugs/high fives/or contact of any kind ☹

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please reach out to a member of the board who will be happy to address it.
