Spectator Code of Conduct

Whilst the easing of mandatory measures for Covid 19 took place on July 19th it should be borne in mind that a significant percentage of the adult population have still not been double vaccinated and that those under the age of 18 years have not been vaccinated at all. It is also recognised that those who have been vaccinated can still catch and spread the virus. With this in mind, we would request that all spectators read and adhere to the following Code of Conduct. This is in line with recommendations from UK Athletics.
