Fox News asks David Nance, CEO of SABRE and safety expert, for running safety tips after recent attacks in New York City.
See excerpt below from the Fox News article, How Runners Can Stay Safe from Attackers.
Run in Public and Mix Up Your Routine
Safety expert David Nance told Fox News that he recommends that people run with a friend, a dog or a running group. However, if that’s not available, Nance said people should avoid wooded trails or areas where there aren’t many other people.
"Make sure you run in areas where others are present," Nance said in an email. "Witnesses help you stay safe."
He also said that runners should change their routines to "outplay" potential attackers who might try to use that routine to their advantage.
"Running the same route at the same time makes it easier for a threat to create a plan," Nance said.
He also said that runners should wear reflective, or light-up gear to stay visible, particularly if they have to cross the street quickly to avoid a suspicious stranger.
