Rules of the Run
1. Stick to the designated route. We will tell you what the route is, but you are responsible for following it. In most instances, we will not have someone leading the way. Draw a map or write down directions if you need to.
2. RWM discourages the use of headphones. If you choose to use them, you assume the risk of injury associated with head phones. Please be alert, especially when crossing streets.
3. No dogs please.
4. Do not run more than 2 abreast, especially on busy roads, sidewalks or multi-use trails. Yield to vehicles on the road. They are bigger than you are.
5. Be mindful of your language and conversation content during group runs given that we have some young people joining us this year.
6. We do not want to leave anyone behind. If you plan to finish your run in a place other than the designated route please tell someone. If you drop out of a run, please contact (or have someone contact) the run leader or Runner’s Edge so we are not out looking for you.
7. You are responsible for your safety while you are running. Obey all traffic signs and rules. Pay attention to your surroundings.
8. If you are running on a road, please face traffic and run no more than 2 abreast. If there is a confrontation with a motorist, please be respectful and report any issues to the run leader.
9. If it is going to be dark during the run: Wear reflective clothing, headlamps and a flasher.
10. If there are people pushing strollers: Those pushing strollers, please stay at the back and be mindful of other runners and traffic. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of the children in the strollers. Children may NOT ride bicycles next to adults during training runs.
11. If you are injured during a run (or witness an injury), please report it as soon as possible to the run leader.
12. Do not litter on the course.
