2020/21 Season – Operational changes due to Covid (updated 28th December 2020)

Given the recent rapid rise in Covid-19 infections globally and the fluid situation regarding travel restrictions and quarantine rules, the Club has decided that, although the Run will open next season, the calendar will be truncated.

  • The Run will open (unless, of course, the circumstances change yet again) on Tuesday 29th December 2020 and close on Sunday 28th February 2021.
  • The Run will only be open from Junction (unless circumstances change). The revised calendar has been uploaded to the website.

In order to comply with Covid regulations we must strictly control numbers using the Clubhouse and the Run.

  1. Beginner Schools must operate in a separate bubble from Members/SLs. Numbers will be strictly controlled. Beginners will be allocated a time slot between 8-9.30/10 a.m. on designated days. The time slot will vary depending on numbers.
  2. All riders must register to ride through the website on any given day. During Member/SL riding time, riders will operate in Groups of Five, with designated arrival times.
  3. Races are not permitted until at least 22nd January 2021. SLs may enter for all Practice Events, including at weekends. Whether they will be included will depend on numbers, with priority given to entry by Members.
  4. Draws will be created for every event, and posted on the website the day before.
  5. Please check the Draw for each day to see the times allocated for riding and do not arrive at the Clubhouse until shortly beforehand.
  6. All riders must check in with their smartphones on the QR code on entry to the Clubhouse. All riders will have their temperature taken before being permitted to ride.
  7. Riders may scratch 24 hours before an event in which they are registered, in order to open a slot for another rider. You must still scratch after this point; however, if, for any reason, you do scratch after this point you will be charged for 3 rides.
  8. It is obligatory to wear a mask in the Clubhouse at all times unless seated at a table in the Bar; moreover, you must keep your mask with you to wear in the Camion.

Beginners on the Cresta Run

Beginners can book a slot for their first day of riding by choosing a practice session from our calendar and following the instructions from there. Beginners are required to review and agree to our Terms and Conditions. You can find out more about riding as a beginner here.  The Fixture Card for the next season will be added to the website in late May once the SMTC Committee has agreed the calendar.
