(Please see supplement powerpoint for further description.)

We would like the homepage to have a color background—we have used a trail here and like it. There will be three content boxes. One will feature the weather (Probably a 2 day forecast that will automatically updates). One will feature an event that is taking place during that week, and the other content box will be a “Running Tip of the Week”. We will need to be able to update and change all of the boxes. Banner ads will be on the right hand side.

Safety Tips page

-Far right: Advertising banner. Refreshes to a new ad every time the page refreshes

-Middle of page: Safety tips: (to be altered by the administrators)

•Run on the left side of the road facing traffic. You will be in a better position to anticipate and react to vehicles.

•Run on roads with wide shoulders.

•Be cautious on blind curves where you will not be visible to approaching cars. Be aware of factors that affect motorist visibility - glaring sun, rain, snow, fog.

•Run single file when running in a group - particularly in high traffic areas.

•Anticipate potentially dangerous situations and be ready to deal with them. Always make the first move to protect yourself. Do not expect cars to alter their paths to avoid you.

•Obey traffic rules and signals. Runners, as pedestrians, are bound by traffic laws.

•Avoid running alone in isolated areas - vary your route.

•Use your ears as well as your eyes - don't wear headphones.

•Wear reflective clothing at dawn, dusk, or nighttime and bright, visible clothing at all other times.
