I have two major events coming up: Pink50 Ultra and Malaysia Women Marathon. In order for me to successfully complete these events, I was advised to run at least 200km per month. I wish I have time to run during daytime, but, daytime training isn’t an option for me since I have 9-to-5 job. So I have to run at night or very early in the morning to clock in that targeted mileage. This isn’t the safest time to run not just to female runners, but all runners regardless of their gender and age, because it is dark. It is always a good idea to be extra cautious. Here are a few suggestions to make your night runs a safe experience:
However, the most important tip that you should apply is common sense and trust your intuition. You can never go wrong with your gut feeling if you feel that something is amiss or out of the ordinary. I hope that every runner will have a safe and enjoyable night run!
