Stride and other running AO’s around the Region are making a concerted effort to develop safer routes that we can become more familiar with. Familiar routes make safer routes. The one YHC chose today limited intersection crossings to 4 and stayed away from heavy, fast moving traffic. The route also incorporated as much sidewalk as possible. Approximately 4.5 miles of the 6 mile route this morning was on sidewalk. I’m not sure we’ll add this route to our list of “safe” routes though because Railroad Dr. didn’t have a good shoulder heading into traffic. There wasn’t much traffic but not having a shoulder to move to made it a little unsafe. I think it’s great that we’ve brought safety to the forefront and everyone is doing a great job following the recommended guidelines introduced by the Region. Great run this morning men!
