As the weather warms up, members should consider sun protection or other skin cancer preventative measures. Consider training in the early morning or late in the afternoon when the UV levels are not as high. If running in the middle of the day, sunscreen and/or a long sleeve top and hat are an absolute must to keep the skin cancer at bay!
