Safety Notes

Take care crossing roads.

You will be running through the city centre and residential roads and footpaths. Beware of traffic (motor and cycle). Major roads (especially the dual-carriageway ring road) can mostly be crossed using underpasses. Use these wherever possible.

Take care on bridges and the waters edge.

The map is produced from open source data so may contain errors or omissions. If a route appears to be private go another way.

It is your responsibility to keep safe, avoid traffic and maintain social distancing. This is just for fun – do not take risks.
This Challenge is not an organised event or activity. You do the Challenge as an individual for personal training and you are responsible for both your own safety and the safety of others around you.
