Hi Trippers!

Be safe out there!

Be safe out there!

We’ve got another great contest this week, so give a read below to find out how to enter…

As you know, safety should always be your number #1 concern whenever you head out for a run.

  • Run in familiar and well lit places.
  • Run with friends when possible.
  • Be aware of traffic and your surroundings at all times.
  • Always tell someone where you’re going (and when to expect you back).
  • And ALWAYS carry identification.

A few months ago, I wrote a post talking about the necessity of having some form of ID on you in case you’re unconscious or unable to speak. Click here to give that post a read.

Well, RoadID is a company that specializes in running safety and provides numerous ways to protect yourself in case the unthinkable happens.

I’ve been wearing a RoadID shoe tag ever since I started training for my very first marathon and I swear by it.

Well, I’ve teamed up with RoadID for a contest and one lucky reader will win a $35 eCard good for use on any of their products.*

Here’s what you do…

  1. Go to the Tripping The Kenyans Facebook page (and give us a “like” while you’re there). You can also leave a comment on the TTK blog or whatever page this post appears.
  2. Leave us a comment saying what type of RoadID you’d be most likely to wear:
    • Wrist ID
    • Ankle ID
    • Shoe ID
    • Dog Tag (The Fixx ID)
    • Pet Collar (The Scout ID)

That’s it.

Be smart... be safe.

Be smart… be safe.

One lucky winner will be chosen at random. (Contest ends on June 16th at 9am PST)

And here’s a bonus for everyone…

RoadID also has a great (AND FREE) mobile app that allows you to leave “electronic breadcrumbs,” enabling your friends and family to track you in real time, as well a “stationary alert” that sends out a warning should you stop moving for more than 5 minutes. It also lets you customize your phone’s lock screen with important information should a first responder need it. It’s a great companion to the RoadID tags. And did I mention it’s FREE?

Click here to head off to learn more about the eCrumb app.

Note: The eCrumb app is currently available only for the iPhone, but they are hard at work on the Android version.

So be safe out there and… Run on!

* Note: When it comes to referrals and giveaways, I do so with products/gear or services that I’ve used personally. I approached RoadID to set up this contest as I think it’s a great product… and everyone should be safe when pounding the pavement.

  1. I’d love the wrist ID. I run at night and this would be great, but hopefully never needed 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment. I’d be thrilled as well to go my entire life and never have anyone else need to look at my RoadID… but this is one precaution definitely worth taking.
