RRCA announces #RunSafe Public Awareness, Safety Campaign

 

To help educate and remind all runners to run safe, the RRCA is embarking on a yearlong, public-safety, awareness campaign starting with the launch of the Run Smart : Run Safe animated video developed by Space Chimp Media. This message is designed to remind both new and regular runners to be aware of their surroundings at all times and to never trust drivers on the road.

The RRCA’s goal is to get as many runners as possible, including youth, to view the message, enhance their personal safety efforts on the run, and to share the message with fellow runners. Clubs, training programs, and events are encouraged to embed this message in their websites, share it in newsletters, share with local media outlets, and more.  Be sure to pass it on!
