The Club has a responsibility to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults to safeguard their wellbeing.

Our Club Welfare Officer is Tamsin Trinder, who is supported by Sarah Holt.

Welfare and Safeguarding procedures are outlined in the Protection Policy above.

General Guidance

Dress for the weather, be bright and wear good footwear.

We ask all runners to wear fluorescent clothing when it’s dark. A head torch of 200+ lumens is recommended, possibly with a rear red light also.

Road shoes with a good tread are fine for the Holbeton lanes and Flete drives, but off-road shoes or trail shoes are recommended for winter bridleway and footpath runs.

Wednesday nights through the winter are head torch runs and so groups must stay together. When running on the roads a rear red light is recommended also.

We are a fun social group – no runner left behind. There are 4 pace groups. Group 2 do the long route, group 1 do possibly more. Group 3 jog the short route and group 4 walk/run the short route.

Warn runners behind of hazards: uneven ground, obstacles, slippy surfaces, deep puddles!

Warm and cool down exercises recommended
