The COVID-19 restrictions that will be in place in February 2021 cannot be predicted. Participants will need to follow the guidance (issued by the Government, and the Scout and Girl Guide Associations) at the time of the event. Any leaders organising an activity towards the Cotswold Marathon Virtual Event must follow the relevant Scout or Guide rules.
If the area in which you live is under Tier 4 or higher you can still complete our virtual event with those from your own household OR as an individual with one other person from outside your household but make sure you follow Government Guidelines at the time of your walk or activity. You can check the latest advice here. You (or your parent) can register to take part in the event on the Cotswold Marathon website. Please note that the Government Guidelines, at the time of your walk or activity, may mean that all exercise activities must be local to your home and may be time limited.
Cotswold Marathon as a Scout/Guide activity:
Under Tier 4 or higher, no face-to-face Scouting or Guiding can take place due to the Red Covid 19 Scout & Guide Association restrictions. No leader is able to organise any activities that would count towards the Virtual Cotswold Marathon and no members of Scouting and Guiding over 18 are allowed to organise their own walk or gathering unless it complies with current Government Guidelines. Please note that the Government Guidelines, at the time of your walk or activity, may mean that all exercise activities must be local to your home and may be time limited. If the area in which you live is in a different Tier at the time of your walk, please refer to the relevant local rules issued by the Government and the Scout and Guide Associations.
If you are under 18 you will need to have discussed your proposed activity with your Parents or Carers who will need to give their permission for you to take part in the Cotswold Marathon Virtual Event. Remember to tell someone where you are going and when you will be back. Parents and Carers will be the responsible adults while their child is taking part in the Cotswold Marathon Virtual Event.
