Safety Gear: Road ID (giveaway)


As a runner, safety is always foremost in my thoughts. During one of my training sessions, my running coach introduced me to Road ID. I immediately ordered one and since then, I have been encouraging all the runners I train to invest in one.  Road ID has many products, but the one I want to share with you today is the wrist ID. It’s a silicone bracelet with a face plate which is customize to include your name, emergency contact information and medical information. Knowing first responders would have all the information they need about me, provides me with peach of mind when I head out for a run. These ID bracelets come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. You can even customize them with badges (10K, 13.1, etc). If bracelets are not your style, they have shoe tags and dog tags. Keeping up with the trends, Road ID even has a face plate that can slip onto your Fitbit.  I started with a blue slim band and eventually decided I wanted another color. Rather than replacing the whole bracelet, I just ordered a new band and moved the face plate to it.  Last year, I moved to the Wrist ID Sport . This washable nylon version has reflective strips and Velcro closure. It’s so versatile. I can attached it to my bike, my hydration belt or wear it.  With a variety of sizes, you can also fit your little one with a bracelet. My son wears a silicone wrist id any time we are in a place with large crowds.  Should he ever be separated from us, it contains our contact information. Many friends have the shoe tag for their children.  Another great safety feature is the free Road ID app for your smart phone.  This is excellent for those who run or bike alone. It has eCrumb tracking, and a stationary alert. If you are not already carrying identification when you are out for a walk, running or biking, try one of these great Road ID products.  Please visit to see all of the fantastic safety products they offer.

  1. That is a great idea, especially the bracelet. I have asthma. Running is hard for me sometimes and knowing that I would have a bracelet if anything happened sounds helpful. Also the location tracking is excellent. This is something I would definitely use.

  2. I haven’t used the products before but the Wrist ID Sport would be great for me. I run early morning and any reflection I give off besides my iPhone flashlight would be good.

  3. I have the silicon Road ID that I ALWAYS wear when running. I’ve been thinking about getting one for my son as well – especially for the times we are at large gatherings. 🙂
