Running safety tips

When running outside, it's important to take the proper precautions and protect yourself.

1. Always leave word

It's a good idea to let somebody know that you are going on a run and where you will be.

2. Run against traffic

It's easier to see oncoming vehicles this way and it's also easier for drivers to see you.

3.Wear brightly colored clothing

If you're running after the sun has gone down, it's important to wear reflective clothing or carry a bright LED light so that drivers will see you.

4. Always carry ID

5. Bring a buddy

There's safety in numbers, so if you're running when it's dark, consider bringing a buddy.
