The Board of Scottish Pentathlon Scottish has discussed the current situation with regard to Covid-19 and are agreed that SP leads with implementing the following with immediate effect:
– The Laser Run event planned for Stirling on 5 April as a warm up for the British LR Championships is cancelled. Full refunds will be issued to those who have already entered. We continue to liaise with PGB with regard to the staging of the Championships in Edinburgh in June and remain hopeful that this will proceed.
– A proposed get together being planned for the SP Athlete Development Group in April has been cancelled.
– Training and coaching at all of the Hubs is cancelled with immediate effect until 1 May when the position will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
While some will be disappointed, we believe these are the right steps at this time and remove the uncertainty of whether to attend events, training and coaching sessions from athletes and parents.
Scottish Pentathlon will continue to monitor the situation and follow guidance and advice issued by HM and Scottish Governments and issue further information as the situation progresses.
