Safety

General risks and hazards that may be encountered are documented here, however we live in a dynamic environment, consequently you  need to be alert to hazards at all times.

Please take time to read and understand them and if you have any questions please ask a run leader.

It is also advisable to check for updates and amendments to this page frequently.

All attending the club runs will be expected to wear suitable footwear and clothing.

For their own safety individuals should endeavour to be visible to other road users by wearing some form of Hi-Viz device, whether an armband with LEDs or a Hi-Viz tabard or bright T-shirt.

Crossing roads; you should always endeavour to use:-

  • pedestrian crossings
  • traffic light controlled crossings  
  • places where there is a central reservation
  • avoid blind corners

Where possible always use the pavement and face the oncoming traffic.

Be aware of surface conditions, pavement edges, potholes, tree roots.

Watch out for overhanging branches from hedges, bushes and trees.

Be alert to obstructions on or along footpaths, these could be lampposts, railings, cones, signs, phone poles, bus shelters. They don't move out of your way and they hurt YOU if you collide with them.

Always take care in the vicinity of small children and dogs ( on or off a lead ) as they can be unpredictable, become a trip hazard,  or even bite if startled.
