Health & Safety:

In case you missed our previous post:

Amazingly after all the rain over the last week, the course is still relatively mud free. Whether this lasts who can say.

What we can say is that we will give you regular updates to help in your footwear choice in the days before the race.

Again, this year we have road closures managed by Forest Traffic to make the race as safe as we can. They cover a section of Boverton Road, Ham Lane and Mill Lay Lane with traffic control on Colhuw Street/Beach Road whilst runners are passing.

For the third year we welcome St John Cymru to provide First Aid cover for all three races. Their crew of 10 will be available on the rugby club field and out on the course wherever they are required.

Thanks are due again to the Volunteer Coast Guard who will be looking after the cliff top section of the race for us and handing out bottles at the first water stop on the 10k.

To comply with Welsh Athletics rules, we prepare an extensive Risk Assessment. This helps identify where we need to improve our precautions and the Runners Brief is a small part of it. If you really want to look at it then you can peruse the book in the Llantonian Hall.

As in previous years the route will be marked with bright yellow arrow signs and arrows will also be painted on the ground. Obstructions on the ground will be highlighted with paint and anything overhanging will have ribbon attached.

Hopefully nobody will get lost…

We hope you all have a great day!
