Serious Issue

The Shufflers are the biggest and best known running club in Shrewsbury and as such we have a responsibility to other residents and footpath users. A few weeks ago we had to issue a reminder about too much shouting when training in residential areas and now we have had a complaint about members 'hogging' the pavement when we are in a group. Please remember that pedestrians and other groups of runners have just as much right to the pavements as we do, so please do not run two and three abreast when other users are being passed. It's no problem to drop to single file under these circumstances and to issue a polite 'thanks' when other users do the same to let us pass. The Shufflers' good reputation is really important to us in the town, let's keep it that way.
