Ability Bow responds to news that 2020 London Marathon as a mass event is cancelled

Disappointing news for charities and runners, but at least it provides some awaited clarity which can only be a good thing!

Following being postponed for 6 months because of Covid-19, it is announced that the mass event will be pushed back to October 2021, and an exclusive crowd-free race will be staged for elite athletes only, on 4th October 2020. 

What we're doing to reopen our face to face services

Now that it is possible for gyms to reopen after being shut because of Covid-19, we are looking at how we can reopen our community gym and begin delivering some limited face to face services. We're excited to think that we'll be able to see many familiar and new faces again soon but because we consider safety of our people above all else, it will take a little time for us to ensure that we have the right measures in place.

What an extraordinary week in unprecedented times. This week, for the first time since we opened 14 years ago, we closed our gym and suspended face to face services. This is all of course to protect our gym members in the wake of corona virus (Covid-19) and to abide by the progressively changing guidelines from Public Health England.

Service Update From Ability Bow

We have issued a statement regarding the coronavirus below. 

Public Health England is now recommending some new actions that will help delay the spread of Covid-19. In support of the delay strategy, Ability Bow has decided to suspend its specialist disabilities exercise services.

This means there will be no gym or exercise services at Ability Bow gym or at our community group classes until further notice.

Our Staff Are Going The Extra Mile (Or 13.1) For Funds This Sunday 1 March!

Our gym's outstanding operations manager - who developed a life-altering knee injury in a near deadly collision with a bus just days before starting his new job - is tackling his first charity fundraiser in 8 years this Sunday 1 March 2020 in aid of his Bow-based therapy gym. 

Si Mohamed Dahiri, 38, who works for our Tower Hamlets based team, will be aiming to raise a combined £2,000 for our life-changing exercise service at the Vitality Big Half marathon on Sunday, by running alongside our fellow mental health exercise lead instructor, super Samuel Quiah, 27.
