Take charge by thinking ahead and being aware of your surroundings.

  • Bring a whistle with you
  • In uncertain areas bring pepper spray
  • Bring a cell phone, and all someone if you feel threatened
  • Wear an ID tag on your shoe
  • Tell someone where you will be running, and when you should be back
  • Use your instincts – turn around if you feel uneasy on a certain street
  • It’s best not to wear any device in your ear, but if you do, keep the sound as low as possible and one ear uncovered.
  • If threatened, swing your elbow at the head of the attacker, put fingers in the eyes, kick in the groin
