Cold Weather Running Tips from the Road Runners Club of America

on 27 December 2017.

 •Always follow the RRCA General Safety Guidelines

 •Leave the headphones at home. Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes cannot see. Wet, wintery conditions may weaken tree limbs causing them to fall. Hearing the crack before the fall may be the difference between avoiding a falling branch or being tackled by a dead limb.
