Safety Notes

Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Bring clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather conditions. Water will not be provided. Please bring your own to rehydrate.
High visibility clothing is strongly recommended.
As with any street orienteering this requires participants to cross roads and you are asked to take due care and attention at all times.
There may be dog walkers, cyclists and residents using the pavements and footpaths – be aware and give them priority.
Take particular care on the unlit rough slippery paths and parkland if you are running in the dark!
Some roads may not have pavements – so take extra care.

Participants take part at their own risk.
