Safety Gear for Runners in Kansas City

Safety Gear for Runners in Kansas City

If you’re a runner, or even just enjoy a nice walking trail, you may also be interested in learning more about the best safety gear for runners in Kansas City.

Women all over the country are taking extra precautions before going on walks or runs, especially alone.

Frontier Justice is here to give you some potentially life-saving advice. Check out our recommendations on safety gear for runners in Kansas City:

Flashlight
They’re not just for seeing! Flashing a bright light in the eyes of your attacker can disable them long enough to get to safety.

Mace or Pepper Spray
These are reliable options for defending yourself from a distance. Don’t wait for an attacker  to get any closer. Disable them using mace or pepper spray, which can have a range of up to 15 feet, and protect yourself.

Stun Gun or Taser
Stun guns and Tasers use electric shock and are extremely effective in self defense, especially for runners.  

Firearm
If you feel confident and experienced with a firearm (such as a revolver or a semi-automatic handgun), there are a ton of sleek ways to carry your firearm in a safe and convenient place so you can reach it when you need it.

Additionally, you may want to keep the following tips in mind:

Running Alone
While running alone may be exhilarating, it may also make you a target to any potential attackers. Always be aware of your surroundings—avoid turning the volume of your headphones up too loudly, checking your phone, or doing anything else that may indicate to another person that you aren’t paying attention. Oftentimes attackers choose to take advantage of ‘easier’ targets that seem distracted or unaware. Pay attention, and give them hell!

Time of Day
Women in the 21st century are busy ladies. We are working to keep a home, raise a family, and advance our careers. It’s understandable that you may not have time during the day to fit in your workout. If you must workout at night, aim for a well-lit area or even choose to go to a gym or a fitness class with other people.

Feel Prepared
It’s not enough to be prepared. You must also feel prepared. If you are interested in honing your skills and learning more about how to protect yourself against an attacker while running, be sure to sign up for our women’s self defense class in Kansas City!
