Herts School Games goes Virtual for 2020
The annual Hertfordshire School Games finals has had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, but the Hertfordshire School Games Organisers have been working hard to bring schools a ‘Virtual’ School Games competition for Summer 2020. This is an exciting programme of sporting competitions, scheduled to run throughout the remainder of the summer term, giving all children the chance to represent their school team, alongside friends and family, and be crowned Hertfordshire champions.
The Covid 19 club survey is due to close on Friday 26th June. If your club hasn't yet taken part please do. It will help to guide us in our offer of help to you all.
This is Bike Week and on Sunday Cycling UK Stevenage cycled all the way to John O'Groats!
Well virtually. 40 members cycled between 5 and 88 kilometres to make up the 1000 (well 1004) shortest distance from Stevenage to John O'Groats - the furthest they could get without getting their feet wet.
Fairlands Valley Spartans are still finding novel ways to keep running despite the current restrictions. Recently they’ve included the Centurion Global event and the club’s own challenge to run at least 5K four times a week.
The Herts Sports Partnership is delighted to launch
'This Girl Can in Herts' 2020!
The digital campaign will start on Monday 15 June and we’re keen to use local people in our imagery, and inspire others to be active. Join us and become a face of
#TGCinHerts for 2020!
Cycling UK say it’s great to see the huge increase in people cycling in and around Stevenage. Many are new to cycling or recent returners and the Cycling UK Stevenage group say if you want places to go they’ve got routes.
They can’t offer group activities at the moment but they have published a number of routes which you can follow virtually while keeping to the pandemic restrictions.
Tina Walker, Chair of the local group and one of its ride leaders and been cycling around some of the easy rides and making videos.
Three Fairlands Valley Spartans entered the European Masters Virtual 5K event. They ran as part of the Great Britain Team and were split into five year age categories.
The Herts Sports Partnership wants to make sure that sports clubs have the very best chance of getting back on their feet post pandemic. We know that you'll be worried about losing members and paying bills, so we're giving you the chance to win £500, just by sending us a single photo.
In an attempt to find out more about the state of clubs post Covid we have put together a short questionaire/survey.
Please fill it in to help us to help you.
Please share the link to any clubs that you know about just in case they don't know about us and the support we can offer.
