Clarification this afternoon implies probably not - I think "near" is this context is meant to be within walking distance rather than a (short) drive beyond the next town. It's all very woolly and I do see the benefits of going somewhere away from people - but question is where to draw the line so that it stops the people who aren't being sensible.https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-gui...
Agreed, but when you have to go for shopping it's not that unreasonable to tag a run on nearby, is it? At the moment at least. Was less impressed with the mountain bikers who were clearly doing trails beyond their ability and they didn't even have helmets.
My reading of the latest advice is that we should be exercising alone and from our own homes. I fear that if people don’t follow this advice we may be stopped from exercising out of doors, as has happened in other European countries, and that would be dreadful for all of us.
Although still not explicitly stated, the additional advice that has come out (immediately after this run!) strongly dissuades this sort of activity. So looks like just running from home for now (which I very much hope continues to be permitted).
