Run'n'Park 5k

Course Safety

The Balloch Run?n?Park 5k  is a fun, free event organised by volunteers for the benefit of everyone.

We wish to make the run as safe as possible, so runners, spectators and helpers are asked to take care about the following:

·  Please be considerate to the park and other park users at all times.

·  Please arrive by foot, by pedal-power or by public transport if you can - your efforts help to reduce our impact on the park and the planet.

·  Take care near roads and car parks - some vehicles drive very quickly. Please congregate away from the cars and be careful in particular if you have children. If you?re driving to the run, please drive carefully even if you?re late!

·  When running, take care on uneven surfaces - whether on grass or on tarmac. Watch out for cyclists, other runners, pedestrians, children, dogs, wildlife, park animals, vehicles, park maintenance work, falling branches, bollards, posts and other obstacles around the course.

·  Please make sure you?re fit enough to run 5k (3.1 miles).

·  Remember to warm up before the run.

·  If you see a runner with a serious problem, please stop to help them out and get help as soon as possible.

·  If you?re watching, keep clear of runners on the course, and look after any children and dogs you may have with you.

·  Runners wishing to run with a dog are welcome, but please keep the dog on a short lead or harness and under control throughout the event.

·  Runners pushing buggies are also welcome, but please take extreme care of other runners around you. If possible start from the back of the field and try to keep to one side of the main body of runners.

·  This is a free training event, so all run and attend at their own risk.

We hope these tips help to ensure that Balloch Run?n?Park 5k  is fun and safe for everyone.
