13. MP3 and other music players and road safety – IMPORTANT READ THIS PLEASE!
For your own personal safety we recommend that you do not run with MP3 music in your ears – so you can be aware of other runners and users along the VGW. There will be a number of key road crossings that we ask you to pay extra caution, at OAKS ROAD (TRAMS), COOMBE LANE (USE THE ROAD ISLAND TO CROSS), BALLARDS WAY, CREST ROAD (USE FOOTPATH – SEE ARROWS ON FLOOR) , ADDINGTON ROAD – REPEAT ADDINGTON ROAD CAN BE QUITE BUSY , THERE IS A PELLICAN CROSSING A LITTLE FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD ON YOUR LEFT IF YOU PREFER – OTHERWISE, PLEASE WAIT FOR A SAFE OPPORTUNITY TO CROSS – DO NOT TAKE A CHANCE AND RUN ACROSS ADDINGTON ROAD – IF I HAVE A SPARE MARSHAL I WILL PLACE THEM THERE TO ASSIST – OTHERWISE , PLEASE USE YOUR COMMON SENSE ! Otherwise, the rest of the route is pretty quiet and rural , one or two others LIMPSFIELD ROAD , THE RIDGE and TITSEY ROAD – that’s it !! Have a look at the map link to see where these are – you run and cross roads at your own risk.
