So with just over 12 weeks to go until the National Running Show in London, we have all been eagerly listening to the daily government announcements to try and work out how to proceed.

My first concern is to make sure that we keep everyone safe and don’t gamble with people’s health and well-being. Secondly I want us to support and help the community during this period and finally I want to make sure that things go back to normal as quickly as possible.

This is why we continue to wait before making any final decision regarding the London show – Boris quite clearly gave a 12 week deadline yesterday so there is a reason to be hopeful. That said, things do seem to be changing on an almost daily basis so we will continue to wait and act on the government advice as we get it. Right now, we still plan to go ahead but if we don’t we will transfer or refund any sponsor / ticket money as per my previous blog posts.

To support the community during this period we have created The National Running Club. This will be a daily email and it will do 2 things:

1) provide updates and ideas for how to keep fit, eat well and improve your running – with daily challenges and support via our social media channels

2) include offers and promotions from running brands, races and other running companies. Some of the companies that we love are small businesses that are struggling in the current climate and by supporting them now, we can ensure their future. We are allowing these companies to advertise in our newsletters free of charge for the next 12 weeks as a show of support. There are some really cool products and great offers in here so please support these companies if you can and if you feel comfortable doing so

I sincerely hope to see you all at the show in June, thank you for your support.

If you want to talk to me about any of this then please do email me on [email protected] or on Instagram @Mikeseaman2709
