Lymes Disease

Please be aware that there is always the danger of contracting Lymes disease from an infected tick bite. Whilst we do not insist on full-body cover we do recommend you read the following two links and familiarise yourself with the potential risk and be aware of what to do in the event of a bite. Lyme disease is contractable in England especially to ultrarunners and especially when running through long grass. It is possible to reduce the risk by using a DEET spray.
