Staying safe while running
Running outdors is a great way to stay fit and healthy, however, when planning a running session, one aspect that every runner should consider is their personal running safety. Here are some tips to keep you safe while you run.
- It’s better to run circular routes because you won’t have to retrace your steps
- Avoid quiet areas
- Stick to well-lit, well-populated roads and paths
- Try to train with a friend, or even in a group
- Tell someone before each training session which route you’re going to run
