Bright Ideas for National Run Safety Month


November is National Run Safety Month. Here are a few “bright” ideas from Big River Running and the Running Industry Association to make running safe and enjoyable. We all know running is incredibly satisfying – and even more so when you minimize risks and maximize rewards. The staff at Big River Running is more than happy to help you run smart and run bright!

Be Prepared. Be Dry.  Wear the right clothing to protect yourself from the elements.
Be Bold. Be Seen.  Sport high-visibility gear in low-light and dark conditions.
Be Connected.  Take a phone with you in case of emergency. Amphipod offers great storage solutions on the run.
Be Aware.  Music is great, but don’t drown out potential danger. Use Aftershokz bone conduction headphones that deliver unrivaled situational awareness & comfort. Our premium audio provides the ultimate open ear listening experience.
Be Safe.  Get Self-defense training for confidence.
Be Together.  Run with friends for safety…and for fun. Join us every Monday Night of the year at 6 p.m. at our South City and University City stores for a free group run!
