Cross Country Running Through Woodlands

When running through woodlands there is always a risk of being bitten by ticks etc. and therefore insect repellent containing DEET is a good idea.

Unfortunately if the tick is infected with Lyme disease then it can be passed on to runners.

If after having been on a run you notice a red circular rash around a bite mark (examples here) you may want to get it checked out sooner rather than later.
