Windmiler Awards 2020 announcement

2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and while for many of us, running has never been more important, it's certainly not provided a level playing field. People have had to deal with unprecedented circumstances, from health to work - and racing and performance have been far from people's minds. That's not to say there haven't been some brilliant performances from runners, swimmers and cyclists - or different combinations of all three - but for many, racing has either been understandably unimportant, or logistically impossible.

Windmilers’ participant session rules (20th July 2020)

England Athletics advises that people should continue to train and exercise in groups of up to six adhering to social distancing. We recommend that members who run in their own informal groups apply the club's participant session rules. Although less restrictive guidelines now exist for some situations, these club rules are intended to protect the safety of participants and the general public, and to preserve a positive reputation for the running community and the Wimbledon Windmilers club.
