Safety for Runners: Staying Aware, Alert and Active
In response to requests from club members following the recent death of fellow runner Mollie Tibbetts, and in preparation for fall/winter running, Springfield Road Runners Club will sponsor a workshop on the basics of runner safety on Monday, October 29, 2018 at 7:00-8:00 p.m. Vince Eazelle, owner of Grand Central Training Facility, has generously agreed to host and present the workshop at his training facility. Grand Central is located at 4179 W. Jefferson in Springfield.
Workshop content will range from running on the correct side of the road, proper use of reflective gear, tips for running alone & safety in numbers and managing confrontation by using your intuition, voice, body and reflexes to get to safety. Vince will review self-defense tips and teach attendees some basic martial arts skills to enhance confidence. Wear comfortable shoes & clothing; participation in activities is completely voluntary.
