We have been watching the advancement of advice with regards to the Covid 19 strain of the Coronavirus very intently at the Mountain Run HQ over the last few days.
We feel that it is not morally correct that we encourage non-essential travel to our locality and do not want to put elderly people who live in the Lakes under anymore undue pressure, therefore we think with the advice available and our moral/social obligations, we feel we must now put on hold any courses and private 1:1 sessions booked with Mountain Run for the next month at least.
This means, if you have a course or day booked with us prior to the 15th April, then we will be in touch with you in the next few days to reschedule the scheduled booking.
We will be assessing the situation on a day by day, week by week and month by month basis and will update information regularly on our Facebook Page and Website.
Please be aware, we are doing our best to keep on top of the situation and do understand folk booked already will be upset with the changes, but we feel it is out of our control and we must adopt this stance.
Ian Corless has been writing some great little articles and advice links, now is most likely a good time to read them:
We also came across this interesting article last night and find, although it is not confirmed to be correct, that it might help explain why we have adopted this approach and come to this decision.
It is a quick simulation of how 'self isolating' might well help with slowing the spread of the virus and how it should allow more people to stay healthier for longer, meaning less pressure on the health and emergency services.
Thanks for your understanding,
Team Mountain Run
