Track Etiquette
The Athletics arena should be a safe training environment, however to ensure safety of each and everyone, certain guidelines should be followed.

When athletes have completed whatever distance they should ensure no-one is on their left and proceed immediately on to the inside of the track so as not to obstruct others
When jogging, walking or recovering athletes should always use outside lanes - for safety reasons (Athletes approaching from behind at speed can be a hazard)
Coaches should continually remind athletes how to respect the track and other Athletes. Coaches and assistants should avoid instructing whilst standing in the track lanes
It is especially important for coaches of junior athletes to remind them regularly of track etiquette

Any athlete deemed to be deliberately obstructive will be asked to leave the track for safety reasons
