IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES – READ BEFORE TAKING PART
By registering for the Great Brook Run you acknowledge that you take part at your own risk and will supervise minors in your care at all times.
The organisers have made every effort to ensure the event is as safe as possible, however by its nature, taking part in The Great Brook Run carries certain risks.
• The route of the “overland” path can be muddy and slippery.
• If the weather is very cold, some of the paths may be icy.
• The Brook is cold and presents risks of hypothermia. If you become very cold, exit the brook and ask a marshal for assistance. The marshal will be able to get you transported back to The Tite Inn where medical help and thermal blankets are available.
• The Brook contains hidden trip hazards such as loose stones and tree roots. It may also hide sharp foreign objects and debris and so suitable, sturdy footwear must be worn.
• There are brambles and nettles along the route, some of which are at eye level. Do not run too close to the side of the brook.
• Parts of the Brook can be more than 3ft deep, particularly where level changes have formed plunge pools.
• If you need medical assistance during the race, please contact one of the Marshals immediately.
• CHILDREN UNDER 16 MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.
• You are entirely responsible for the welfare of all minors in your care.
By signing the registration form before the race, you acknowledge that you take part entirely at your own risk and that the organisers and venue accept no liability or responsibility for injury or loss whatsoever
