Please run in single file beside the canal and show courtesy towards other users of the tow path. In the unlikely event that someone falls in, please get a message to a marshal as quickly as possible. As it is important that runners are fully aware of others around them and are able to hear the marshals at all times, particularly at the road crossings, we ask that you do not wear headphones.
