<p>I have started running again, after a two month break, the area I run as an open field that  is a 3 mile loop (light blue) dirt road perimeter, and if I want to add to the course I can run the dirt roads between the major roads (half mile), the owners of the farm land have posted no trespassing signs. The alternative is sidewalks and pavement.</p>

<p><span style="font-size:medium;">I tried to make this a poll</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:medium;">What would you do?</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size:medium;">a.  Ignore posted sign</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size:medium;">b.  Find a new place to run</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size:medium;">c.  Whip it out</span></p>

<p>Can you find out who the owner is and ask for their permission ? In my town almost all the land is posted but the target is usually noise makers like ATVs, or perceived (or real) safety threats like (careless) hunters, or if people are littering on the land. They or may not care about pedestrians or runners. Other reasons for newly posted land would be new owners or new liability laws (or new knowledge of them by the owner). In the latter case you won't get permission, but they may not say anything if they see you trespassing either, despite the sign they, may have posted to avoid being liable for someone getting hurt on their land... In the absence of permission from the owner, I would go around. </p>

<p>Talk to the landowner or don't run there.  The whole food safety regulations thing though makes me think it's some gov't issue more than a landowner thing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seems like it'd be easier to zig-zag around the neighborhood to the right to add some extra distance.</p>

<p> Sign says "No Unauthorized individuals"..  So find the owner and tell them what you would like to do, and ask for permission.   I bet they will let you .  That is a govt  required thing so that their field  is not peutrified by some sort of nasty ness.. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="width:37px;height:15px;" title="">MY question is how to the animals know that they are not allowed in there?  Can they read the sign or do they just "know" now that it is there ?</p>

<p>I would talk to the owner.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There is a gravel road in my area I wanted to start incorporating into my long runs. It follows the contour of the land, so a lot of rolling hills. It is a water utility access road (we all call it pipeline road). It seems uninviting (gates, signs etc) but I called one of the engineers and he told me no problem. They do not want any motorized traffic on the road, but walkers / runners are fine.</p>

<p>I see an irrigation canal so I assume its agricultural property. Sometimes even just the soil off your shoes can contaminate a field if you have been in other fields recently.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Its not your property...dont run there.</p>

<p>I have not run on the property since the posting of the signs, I have followed the perimeter (blue line). I have been running around my neighborhood (4 mile loop) houses to the right, except it is all sidewalks and asphalt. I miss running on the dirt roads.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Grizzly, I have seen onion, carrots, radishes, watermelons and cabbage growing in these fields.  I avoid the fields after they harvest the cabbage, the leftovers sit in the hot sun, you can image the smell.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I do see people walking thier dogs on the dirt roads, and I have seen beer cans/bottles thrown in the irragation ditches. I would think that is who is being targeted.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>thanks for the comments, I will see about contacting the owners</p>
<p> </p>
