Oops! These things happen!

Dear runners,

Just a quick note, we have had a recent influx of people going the wrong way on the route despite having at least as many and in most instances more marshals out on the course than we did 12 months ago.
Maybe this is due to a recent increase in numbers (for this time of year, our numbers suggest that by summer we will be smashing our previous attendance record) and many new runners!
As a result we would like to remind you all that parkrunners MUST be responsible for themselves including knowing the course before they run.
There is no obligation for any parkrun event team to mark or marshal the course where there are no health or safety concerns.
Our marshal's are a bonus and we do generally provide plenty of them, but please exercise some self reliance and don't count on them being there!
Thanks a lot
South Manchester parkrun Events Team
