We have included below our virtual running tips.
Tips for running the virtual challenge?
**We ask all runners to please be aware of your surroundings and choose safe areas to run or walk, be careful carrying valuables such as cell phones.
**Running or walking with a mask may be required in your area, practice social distancing when out and remain 6 feet away from people you encounter, if running with a mask don’t overdo it. You should though always take a mask with you when running or walking in case of an emergency.
**Social distance when running or walking and choose hours that have fewer people out to avoid crowds.
**Be creative with your course – routes. You can run or walk indoors on a treadmill, in your yard, walking your dog, up and down your driveway, create a small loop or lap course which you can repeat, or enjoy your favorite routes and trails.
**Set a routine, xx amount of KMs each day, xx amount of days a week.
**Carry water if running or walking long distances or in hot conditions.
**Take your ID in case of an emergency.
**Notify someone when you start your run or walk and then when you are done. Let them know where you are running or walking.
**If listening to music only use one earplug and leave your other ear open to listen for potential hazards or traffic.
**Check the weather for the time you plan on running or walking.
**Wear bright or reflective clothing.
**Have fun with it, get social, and share your achievements and accomplishments.
**Lastly and most importantly, use common sense and listen to your body — don’t overdo it and stay safe.
