foot-and-mouth & bovine tuberculosis
Xrunner is working with the environment to preserve nature as obstacle racing takes over the UK’s countryside
Reports state that approximately 5 million people took part in the obstacle race phenomenon last year. That number is only going to grow with the success of the events but at what cost to the environment?
Cross contamination is a huge factor in the spread of diseases. Foot-and-mouth, bovine tuberculosis, aphanomyces astaci aka crayfish plague to name just a few. These all affect our wildlife, farm animals and human friends that enjoy the countryside.
XRunner insists that all competitors takes minimal, but necessary steps to help reduce this risk of contamination. By simply washing and drying all running gear and shoes that have been previously worn outdoors. These simple steps greatly reduce the risk of cross contamination. All competitors must wear clean dry kit otherwise you will not be allowed to take part in our events, sorry.getmuddy
