Club guidance for runners

The following advice has been formulated by the committee for members training with the Club:

Reflective clothing should be worn from 01 October to 31 March;

Abide by the Highway Code when running on the road;

Be aware of other road users and pedestrians to minimise nuisance or inconvenience to other road or path users;

Face oncoming traffic whilst running on roads without adequate pavements;

If you have to run on the road no more than two abreast and single file if necessary;

Avoid overtaking on the road if there’s traffic coming;

Allow faster runners off first on busy roads to avoid unnecessary overtaking and straying off pavements;

Do not wear headphones, for safety and communication with others.
