When you run, you should be able to feel free, safe, and focused. But sometimes we find ourselves in situations that make us feel vulnerable—or worse, in danger. In those rare moments, a little preparation and forethought can give you peace of mind and a means to stay safe.
We’ve rounded up some of the most effective, low-profile tools out there—from extra light sources to pepper spray—so you can enjoy your run safely. Whether you choose to carry one is entirely up to you (and possibly the laws in your area), and we hope you never need to use any of them while out running. But sometimes, simply knowing you have protection in case you need it might make you feel more confident about heading out the door. Just make sure you know how to use whatever it is you're carrying. The bottom line: do what makes you feel most comfortable.
The SABRE Runner Personal Alarm
Your phone may seem like your most reliable lifeline for help, but there will be times when you don’t have good service, or your legs have outlasted your battery. The SABRE Runner Personal Alarm signals to anyone in a 1,000-foot radius that you’re hurt, in trouble, or in need of help with a piercing, 130dB alarm. It conveniently straps around your wrist, is incredibly light, and is made with reflective material for added visibility.
The SABRE Runner Pepper Gel
Carrying pepper spray on the run doesn’t have to be clumsy and heavy. SABRE’s palm-sized spray fits perfectly in your hand and stays put with an adjustable wrist strap. Though it’s small, it’s powerful.
The maximum strength gel formula is designed specifically for outdoor use. It deploys in a stickier, powerful stream that doesn’t atomize in the air like traditional pepper sprays, which virtually eliminates wind blowback and makes it safer to use on runs.
A 12-foot range enables you to use it effectively before danger gets too close. A locking safety mechanism prevents accidental discharge, while a reflective logo helps keep you visible during early morning or night runs.
