Be Seen at Night This Winter to Avoid Accident or Injury

16 Nov

The club will shortly issue a revised risk assessment covering training away from sports fields and running tracks this winter. One of the key elements will be that Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Run Leaders must ensure that ALL runners running with a club group away from sports fields or running tracks are wearing bright coloured clothing and ideally high-visability vests or jackets or reflective patches on their top layer.

One way to get ahead would be to purchase a viloft thermal rib long sleeve T-shirt in fluorescent yellow. They will be available in small, medium and large shortly from Club Development Adviser Keith Brackstone at £6 each. An example is in the picture below. If you need one in an extra-large please email Keith at so he can order you one.

Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Run Leaders and runners are reminded that there is a box of high-visibility vests in the shed at Whitehall that can be borrowed for runs from the track there. Please remember to return them after your run.
