Be Careful at Hazlewood

If you're running at hazlewood please be careful.
Two people have broken bones out there this week having slipped
It's very wet and muddy with lots of tree roots exposed so is dangerous.
So either find somewhere a bit grippier or be very careful
We had a club member break bones there last year as well.
It's a lovely route but as you can see needs caution.
