When taking part it is important you remain safe while doing so. Check out our top tips for staying safe while keeping active:

  • Wear the correct footwear, trainers are ideal!
  • Don't wear jewellery, this can get tangled while running/cycling.
  • Don't go out in poor weather conditions, wait until the weather clears up or get active indoors. 
  • Stick to routes you know - always take a walk around your chosen route before you start to ensure you know where to go.
  • Try and run with a friend from the same household, if you prefer to run alone you should always take a phone in case of emergencies.
  • If running/cycling in the dark, always wear reflective clothing so that you are visible.
  • Be careful of traffic, if you are forced to run in the road you should stay to the right, facing traffic.
  • And finally - don't push yourself too far!
