Be Safe Be Seen

When taking part in club training all athletes must wear a Hi-Vis top or vest and have a Headlight. This is mandatory for anyone taking part in the Tuesday night's Speed, Wednesday night's Fit4Life or Thursday's Tempo sessions.

Saturday morning running groups should wear Hi-Vis tops.

You will not be permitted to take part in the session unless you are properly kitted out.

Additional arm or leg reflectors are desireable but not essential as long as you have a headlight.

Safe running in 2016!
