Safety Tips For Jogging At Night

One jogger remarks: “I just gotta say the past week I have been jogging at night, and so far its my favorite time to jog”. “Its been nice a cool so it feels amazing. My dog Dakoda is pretty happy that I keep bringing him. I’m still doing my week 1. Its getting way easy. Probably by the next few days or even tomorrow I’ll be switching to week 2! By the end of this Challenge and Pooch to 5 k I’ll step on the scale and see how much weight I’ve lost, can’t wait! I already feel thinner!”.

People run at night for different reasons. Some might prefer the quiet of the night, while others might not have any other time available because of work or family obligations. Whatever the reason, running at night requires some extra preparation, especially when it comes to safety. Everything from cars to predators are bigger dangers at night, so taking precautions is key before a run.

THINGS TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT WHEN JOGGING AT NIGHT:


A woman was stabbed while jogging at night not very far from my house in the neck of the woods I run in. ( Stabber is caught by the way . Good job, OCSD! ) God bless this lady for having fought the guy off and that she’s not lethally injured.   It’s a horrible thing to have happened to anyone, let alone in this sleepy side of town. It’s also a lesson that nowhere is truly safe.

You don’t want to end up being part of this story. On July 10, a woman reported to police that she was assaulted while jogging on the west I-35 frontage road between 2nd and 15th Streets in Edmond. The woman says she was jogging at approximately 9:40 p.m. when she was attacked. She ran to her nearby home and called police.  Responding officers say that when they arrived at the woman’s home, she was covered in blood and not talking. She was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO BE SAFE WHEN JOGGING AT NIGHT:


Vary your route and timings – jogging at night makes you easy prey for potential attackers who can study your jogging routine and lie in wait for you in particularly secluded and dark areas.

A phone is an essential thing to carry while jogging at night, and always make sure it is fully-charged before leaving the house. It could be used for individual use or to help someone else, and if there are any suspicions about someone nearby, it’s easy enough to pretend to speak on the phone and show confidence and that someone else is available, which could deter any potential threats. Carrying ID is important for many reasons, but with it being night, one could potentially be mistaken for someone else, so to save hassle and any misunderstandings, carry some form of identity information.

Take a friend along – try never to run alone. Jogging at night is not only safer in numbers but also ensures you do not get bored while exercising. If you must run alone, tell someone the route you will be taking and approximately how long you will be out running.

If you’re not fond of light-tinted outfits while strolling or jogging at night, there are other alternatives. Those who don’t want to bother with carrying along a bulky flashlight can opt for using reflective belts. Reflectors can be worn across the waist or other places that drivers won’t miss.

Keep a look out for other runners, skateboarders and bikes always be aware of other users while jogging at night in the park or on a path with no cars. Make sure the path is clear before you stop or turn around to avoid collisions and injury to yourself and others.

It is important to always be aware of your surroundings and to take a partner along if possible. Whether jogging at night or walking through a dark parking lot alone, be alert and aware at all times.

MUST HAVE SAFETY TIPS FOR JOGGING AT NIGHT:

Safety Tips For Jogging At Night You must carry some kind of self defense weapon with you when night jogging. One of the best and most recommended devices is the Tornado Defense System w/ Clip.  It is lightweight and easy to use, and can be accessed and deployed in about one second. A single button releases the unit from the base and automatically activates (in less than one second) the alarm and strobe, calling for help and blinding the attacker. The Tornado personal defense system discharges eight one second bursts of pepper spray up to a distance of 15 feet, and with the built in finger lock you always know the unit is pointed in the right direction (so you can’t spray yourself).

The unit measures three and one-half inches x two and one quarter inches. It requires 2 CR2032 button batteries that are included. A free belt clip and lanyard are included with each unit purchased. There is also a Arm Band w/ Light accessory available just for joggers who want to job at night.
