CYCLISTS – Watch out for cyclists on the Plym trail and listen for their warning bells

UNEVEN TERRAIN / EXPOSED ROOTS – Some uneven woodland terrain

ROAD CROSSING – Take care when crossing vehicle access roads during the final few hundred metres and through the car park, under the bridge at the top end of the route.

General safety considerations

• Ensure someone knows when and where you are going and your approximate return time

• Take time to familiarise yourself with the route before you head out. RunGo allows you to print off a simple route map with all turn points too

• Always carry a means of contacting someone should you become lost, unable to complete the route or need urgent medical assistance

• We recommend the use of a tracking service if your app or timing device has the functionality

• We also suggest having a grid reference app or the ‘what3words’ app available should you need to give someone your specific location quickly

• All the Nottingham SixPack routes are multi-terrain and liable to be occasionally muddy and slippery in parts, so please do take care

• We suggest participating with a buddy, especially if you are inexperienced in off-road terrain

• For those who are more competitive, don’t race the route until you are familiar with it. Most routes will involve the occasional road crossing and being aware of your
surroundings is always essential.

Our tip: Complete the route twice prior to putting the hammer down!

• Be aware of the weather forecast: don’t undertake hard physical effort in extreme heat, cold, rain, etc.

• Don’t exercise when suffering from a respiratory infection. For anyone suffering or recovering from an underlying illness, injury or medical condition please seek professional guidance before undertaking the challenge.

• Remember that we will always be sharing these beautiful routes with others. So, give way, say hello, don’t barge through, and most of all enjoy!
