CONTEST: “ALWAYS BRING YOUR ID”
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…
- 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.
- 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)
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?

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.
