Junior Marshalled Road Crossing
Competitors take part at their own risk & are responsible for their own safety.
The area is likely to be extremely busy with pedestrians as the event is run in conjunction with the Cliffhanger Festival, although courses have been planned to avoid the busiest locations. In addition, roads on the map are open to traffic and a lot of care should be taken when crossing.
Juniors courses mostly stay within the housing estate, on very quiet cul-de-sacs. The Light Green (and to some extent Yellow) do venture out into surrounding streets. These roads are still very minor but competitors are reminded to check carefully for cars before crossing any road. There are pavements beside all roads, and these should be used unless actually crossing the road.
Competitors on the senior courses should be aware that some roads that are crossed by courses are very busy. Timed out crossings (along with bridges and underpasses) have been utilised on the busiest roads, and controls placed to ensure that these are used.
Pelican Crossings across the busiest roads are marked clearly on the map, and these should be used on the legs where the control descriptions indicate to.
Competitors must Take Care Crossing Roads: Some roads are very busy. Look and Listen for a safe place to cross. For safety use crossing points where advised.
Safety & risk
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.
