  • What safety protocols does Pack Training Team encourage/enforce for its runners?
    The Vice President or designee has discretion in identifying potential safety hazards and taking appropriate action, although the Board suggests consulting with the Vice President or a pace group leader before any sanctions are imposed or to clarify any questions. Other Policies: During team runs, all participants are strongly encouraged to wear reflective clothing if running in the dark or if it will get dark during the run. Groups should follow “ranger rules”, which means leave no one behind for any reason (bathroom breaks, “need to walk”, twisted ankle, etc). All groups should obey all traffic signs. You should NEVER run against a light or through a stop sign and ensure you can safely clear an intersection. Runners participating in group team runs should use sidewalks and trails or face traffic and run no more than two abreast when on a road
