Cambs AA – T&F event update 2020
Given the latest guidance from England Athletics, Cambs AA has decided that there will be no County promoted Track and Field events in 2020.
We have taken into account many factors, including:
- The Peterborough and Cambridge track facilities have been closed over recent weeks. It is uncertain when both tracks will be fully operational again
- To avoid injury, athletes will need three or more weeks to get back track fitness which means the earliest date for an event would be into September
- The England Athletics guidance limits the number of athletes in each event and the cost of track hire/First Aid will be prohibitive and the availability First Aid cover uncertain
- The County depends on its pool of officials, many of whom are retired and, in some cases, at higher risk to the virus.
In view of these factors, the Cambs AA committee encourages track & field competition activity to take place within the club environment over the coming weeks. The situation for the Sports-hall and Cross-country events over the winter months will be kept under regular review taking into account governing body advice.
Data Protection – athlete entry data
Cambridgeshire AA will not release any athlete data to any third party other than as spcified below and the data provided will not be used for any marketing purposes. Data may be used by county team managers to contact athletes for team selection, and to register county teams with authorised event organisers. Published results (on the County website and data passed to Power of 10) will include only the athletes name and competition age-group and the event performance. Online entry data will be retained by Runtrack for future entry purposes until the athlete is no longer competing. Paper entry data will be destroyed 6 months after the event has taken place.
