Chippings are to be laid along the route of the new Sheffield Half Marathon after concerns over mud were raised by a runner.

Michael Shuker contacted Sheffield Council to point out that the footpath next to Ringinglow Road was a ‘mudbath’ which meant training runners had to use the road instead.

He said: “With the increasing number of runners training, it only seems a matter of time before we have a tragedy.”

Coun Isobel Bowler, cabinet member for sport, said she had raised the issue and chippings should be put down soon.
