Run with identification
Run with identification

Most times when out running, we feel great and on top of the world, but sometimes unexpectedly bad things can happen - we fall and hurt ourselves, or worse we are knocked out, unconscious or in some cases killed. If this happened to you do you carry Identification with you ? so that your family can be immediately notified or any allergies made clear ?

CoolRunning would like to be seen as an advocate for responsible behaviour by runners and encourages runners to carry some type of id when they are out running.

We are suggesting runners use easy-to-carry Id from top-rated USA company Road-Id which can be easily attached to shoes or bracelets. This would make a good birthday or Christmad present. Click here to view their range and order yours. (CoolRunning make a small % of each sale).

This idea came from this thread on CoolRunning Australia and this one on CoolRunning NZ.
