Health Tip: Stay Aware While Running
Safety suggestions for sprinters

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- On the run? You need to remember some safety tips before you hit the trail.

The Road Runners Club of America advises:

  • Skip the headphones so you can hear what is going on around you.
  • Carry a cell phone and some form of identification that includes your address, phone number, blood type and important medical information.
  • Run against the flow of traffic to better see oncoming vehicles.
  • When crossing streets, get acknowledgement from a driver that he or she sees you.
  • Always obey traffic signals.
  • Vary your running location, but stick to familiar routes.
  • Tell someone before you leave where you will be running and when you expect to return.
  • Run with a friend or a pet. Avoid isolated areas, including overgrown trails and deserted streets.
  • Wear reflective material if you're running when it is dark or near-dark.
