              5 RUNNING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS YOU MIGHT NOT BE TAKING (BUT SHOULD BE) July 06, 2017 08:00

              Safety Tips for Runners/Walkers

               When you go for a walk or a jog, do you take these safety precautions? 

              1. Wear an ID

              It's very important to have some form of identification, such as an emergency wristband. That way if anything were to happen, your essential information would be readily available.

              2. Tell Someone Where You're Going

              Be sure to tell a trusted family member or friend the route you will be walking/jogging and your expected return time. If you have a GPS watch with live tracking, don't make that info public, but send it to a close friend or family member.

              3. Wear Reflective Gear in Low-Light Conditions

              Make it very easy for others (especially drivers) to see you, even if it's during the day.

              4. Fuel During Runs Longer than 45 Minutes

              On longer runs, don't allow your body to deplete. Fuel with energy gels or other electrolyte replenishers.

              5. Plan for Water Stops

              Make a route that passes water fountains, or carry water with you to prevent dehydration.

               

              Where to Get Equipped?

              Look no further than your local running store!
