Important safety information

The route is not closed to traffic, therefore we must insist that all participants use the public footpaths where available. Gwent Police have expressed their concerns about runners using the road as this poses a hazard to both runner and vehicles. We will disqualify anyone seen using the road instead of the pavement.

The Course is a mix of tarmac and stone-dust paths. There may be twigs and gravel underfoot. There are low bridges and narrow bits. You may encounter cyclists, members of the public, dogs, and in some places, vehicles on the road.  If you fall in the canal – there is a risk of contracting Weils Disease. (see more below)

Weils Disease (Leptospirosis)

Weil’s disease is a form of a bacterial infection also known as Leptospirosis that is carried by animals, most commonly in rats and cattle. It can be caught by humans through contact with rat or cattle urine, most commonly occurring through contaminated fresh water. In the event of an incident that results in contact with the water in the canal – please read this advice notice
