Welcome to Chew Valley Snails, a group for novice to experienced recreational runners in the Chew Valley area.

UPDATE 24.03.2021

Following the government announcements on the gradual easing of lockdown we can shortly begin to run together again in small groups. So from March 29th

* we can meet for exercise in groups of up to maximum of 6 ...  the Rule of Six; obviously you can meet in smaller groups too!

* social distancing continues so you should still stay 2m apart when meeting or running with people, something to think about when planning routes and how many people it is safe to run with

* you can have a  coffee in each other’s gardens after your run, as well as in public places

* the “stay at home” rule finishes, so you can travel further to meet up for a run, although the advice is that people should stay as local as possible.

All this means that Snail Social Runs can start again! Please ensure you have read, and adhere to, the Snails Risk Assessment which can be found under the "News" heading at the top of the page.  For a clearer pdf version of the updated Risk Assessment you can find it  under "Files" at the top of the  Snails Facebook page.
