Runner Safety [Infographic]

May 29, 2013
You look out for your personal safety at work and at home, so don’t forget to stay safe after you lace up your running shoes and hit the streets.

Eighty-seven percent of U.S. women between the ages of 18 and 64 have been harassed by a male stranger on the street. A new infographic from React Mobile offers a host of runner safety tips ranging from how to deal with harassment to preventing common running injuries.

If you face street harassment while going for a run, the infographic advises:

  • Try to ignore the harassment if possible.
  • Use strong body language.
  • Do not respond to diversions, threats, blame or guilt trips.
  • Project confidence and remain calm.
  • Do not apologize or make excuses.
  • Try not to lose your temper. Be calm.
