Yes exactly. I'm not sure what Cinders was trying to say last night.

Anyone trained properly in H&S knows that the first solution is always training. Then if you can't reduce the risk enough then you change the environment as far as is practical.

Common sense is what we learn from common everyday occurrences. It's very easy to say in hindsight that it should have been common sense but the world is a much more complex place now and not everyone will have the experience of every situation and things only become obvious afterwards.

Last resort is training if the hazard cannot be removed or made safe in any other way. (training is always required but in the hierarchy of risk reduction it is at the bottom of the pile)

Why are so few races on Saturdays ?

There are less people working so easier to organise re roads closures and more potential entrants

Bit late on this thread but reading back white dog shit that made me laugh ...had totally forgotten about that but do remember it ! Also remember the dogs in packs too ! 

We used to have great fun building go carts (for some reason then called bogies in my neck of the woods) from old pram wheels and the like and pieces of wood steered by string and no breaks . Never thought of the danger when going full pelt down the hill on the road ! ....we did have someone on lookout  to shout if anything was coming though !

Called them bogies where I grew up too, still have the scar on my leg

Windermere Marathon

Undulating, there's not a yard of flat on it. Great race, give it a go.

Distance or time?

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 12:53

personal opinion is time, it's much harder to get faster, you can go further just by slowing down.

Beggners help on what to wear on bike and beginner groups in area...

Trail Running Routes and feedback needed

I'm selfish about my trail routes, don't want to share, that's the attraction.
