Saints Way 2021
The Sarah Bazeley Saints Way Memorial Run
If you are looking at this page you are taking the first steps towards your running journey. Welcome to STARC Run/Walk which is a friendly organised group of people who are here to help, support and advise you on running, make friends and generally help your well being. You are able to come and run for a couple of weeks before joining to see if you think this is for you. Club Runs are from St Austell Rugby Club at 6.30pm Monday’s We have 2 groups which are as follows Intro This group is a semi structured group which run/walk approximately 1-1/1/2 miles, the group will have leaders which are there to answer any questions and support you, you are under no pressure to keep up if you can’t, any runners that are slightly quicker will loop back to the back runner, no one is left behind and this enables the group to stay together.
This group will run/walk between 2 to 3 miles max, this group will become less walking and more running the more your running develops, this group also operates the loop back system, to ensure that no runner is left behind. once you feel confident of run/walk 3 miles, you can think about moving to the main groups, on a Tuesday and Thursday where the foundation group start at 3 miles.
We are also going to start a Month’s induction to running, Due to COVID restrictions we are unable to run our 0-5k, so we are running a month induction to running, you sign up for the month, we will give you a schedule to follow and once you have completed the month, if you want to carry on you can become a club member and then attend the intro group on a Monday.
These sessions will be structured and following on each week, you will be guided by leaders throughout these sessions. While we still have COVID restrictions we will be operating our booking App system. This will be posted on our Facebook page when bookings are open, with the closing details as well. Look forward to seeing you STARC Run/Walk

Returning to Club.
Return to club nights, rules and restrictions.
Please read carefully.
Please note if you have any symtoms please do not attend.
It is with great pleasure we can start to run club nights again, However we have some strict rules and guidelines we must follow to allow this. So for the rest of August we will be running club nights only on Tuesdays starting on the 11th August. These nights will be testing our new system and rules so please bear with us captains.
What is changing:
You need to be a fully paid up member of the running club before the evening to be able to come along. We will not be handling any membership on these evenings. If you still need to sign up please contact Martin Trethewey.
We will be meeting outside in the grandstand area. There will be a one way system all sign posted up.
Each group will be assigned an area and there may be a few of the same speed groups. You will be allocated which group you’re in on arrival.
You will need to book on the club Facebook page to come to these evenings. We need to have full traceability of the people that attend these evenings. This is for track and trace purposes and is an EA requirement. If you are not on FB you may email me and I will add you on. Please do so by Saturday to give time to add!
How will this work?
We will post on the club Facebook page on a Friday morning for the following Tuesdays run. You will be required to put your name and group speed below the post. Just these 2 things please nothing else. Once your name is on the post you are welcome to come along on the evening. This is the strict part, If your name is not on the list you can not attend the evening and if anyone turns up that isn’t on the list we will have to turn you away (hopefully this will not happen). The post will close on the Sunday evening at 9pm this is to allow us captains time to allocate groups/leaders and size of groups. We are aware not everyone has Facebook but this is our easiest forum at the moment. So if any of your friends do not have Facebook you are allowed to post their name and speed group for them.
Each group will be set off at intervals to try and minimise any congestion and we aim to start at 6:30pm on the dot. Please be on time as if your group has gone you cannot join another group.
Each leader will also have a list of the runners in their group so changing of groups on the evening is not allowed.
Group sizes will be kept as small as possible, we are aiming between 6/7 per group so we can maintain the 2m social distancing rules.
It is your responsibility as well as ours to make sure you adhere to the government’s social distancing guidelines.
Facilities at the rugby club are still being assessed so be prepared to not being able to use the toilets. If we are allowed to use them all this must be done before 6:30pm as we can’t afford to wait for people.
Thank you and looking forward to seeing you all.
