Health and Safety

The most important part of running outdoors is that we all come back safely.

Therefore, we ask that all members please consider the following.
When running alone or in a group, please consider the following rules of the Highway Code:

1. Where there is a pavement, use it.

2. Where there is no pavement, run on the right-hand-side of the road so that you see
oncoming traffic and keep close to the side of the road. Take care at sharp bends and
if advantageous use the other side of the road before returning to the right.

3. Wear or carry something that will help you to be seen (Hi-Viz bib/running lights/flashing armbands)

With regards to club nights and events, we ask the following:

• All members please consider wearing emergency contact tags.

• Use of headphones which go in or cover the ear when running is prohibited. Bone
conducting earphones are permitted, although not advised.

• In the dark it is important to wear something with high visibility so that you can be
seen. Reflective bands/strips or running lights are strongly encouraged.

• To respect that our club organised sessions are not marshalled, so please take
responsibility for your personal safety.

• Always ensure that everyone in the group is accounted for before heading off – this
may mean buddying up with a slower member if necessary.

• It is the responsibility of every club member to report an incident. It helps the club create the safest environment possible. If you would like to report an incident or near miss, please use the following link:

• Please wait for the run leader to show you where to cross the road, so we all cross

Club Etiquette

When there are smaller groups of runners ie Monday night, please note who is running and ensure all runners are counted in at the end.

If you decide to leave a run group early, you MUST inform another runner so the group are not left waiting/looking for you.
