V&S and Runners

There are a lot of visitors with dogs on the Boulders Open Space.  Indeed the only group which has greater representation is probably the running community.  When I take the dog on the morning walk we are routinely passed by 20 or so runners which gives plenty of opportunity to consider the problems.

When the runners are starting off everyone is in a good mood and while I try to move the dog out of the way they are fine with stepping round him.  Problems occur when the runners are struggling during their run or sprinting for the finish when a loose dog on the trail is a real problem.  As ever, every situation is different and the V&S participant need to be aware of whats going on around them.
