Safety:  Whilst we have carried out full risk assessments of the competition areas and put in place mitigation of the risks we have found, please be aware that you take part at your own risk. Competitors will be responsible for their own safety.
Please be aware of all traffic, pedestrians and other competitors. It is a good principle, to pass other runners to the left. The courses pass through all types of urban environment with a wide range of underfoot conditions. Wet Yorkshire pavements and cobbles are very slippery as are the flags and grass. Competitors who are travelling alone are advised to leave named car keys at enquiries. All competitors must download as soon as possible at the end of their run whether they have completed the course or not.

Planner’s Comments:

The route to the start, for all competitors, involves a road crossing which will not be marshalled. The road is in a 30 mph restriction and there is a traffic island to facilitate safe crossing.

The yellow (M/W 12-) course crosses two roads. The first will be marshalled and the second will involve a one-minute timed crossing, which will be also marshalled. In addition to these two crossings the Light Green course (M16-) will cross a 30 mph restriction road twice in the early part of the course.  Please take extra care as this will not be marshalled.

Courses Green to Brown cross a busy ring road twice and can do so at either of two mandatory crossing points. The first is via an overpass and the other via the Station Bridge. When using the station route competitors are asked to take particular care both in relation to themselves and passenger users. When using the station route from North to South take care as you exit the station as you may encounter traffic using the station car park. This station route involves crossing the ring road itself. The marked crossing point is at a Pelican crossing with a traffic island in the middle of the road.
