For the runner taking on a route alone, Sidmouth Running Club’s Kyle Baker has devised a general keep yourself safe list which is more relevant for during this Corvid crisis.

The Kyle ‘stay safe’ reads...

1. Tell someone your planned route.

2. Take a fully charged mobile phone with you, one with the app What 3words installed.

3. Keep hydrated and take a drink with you.

4. Try to avoid busy ares like parks and green spaces.

5. If running past someone leave a 2 meters space.

6. Avoid busy timings. Early mornings, lunchtimes and early evenings are often quieter.

7. Wash your hands as soon as you get home.

8. If you feel unwell, don’t go running. There’s always tomorrow!

A reminder that Sidmouth Running Club are embracing the 26.2 Challenge taking place this Sunday (April 26).
