ICE ICE Baby – Show your ID please
We would like to remind people of the importance of carrying some sort of ID with you when out running.
We understand that taking a mobile phone with you can be awkward and affect your running form, there is also the possiblity of it being dropped and broken and often you just don’t have any pockets to carry round your old fashioned address book!
But, we have a solution: https://parkrun-barcode.com/
Solve two problems at once with these parkrun barcodes! With lots of options you’ll never have an excuse to forget your barcode again, plus on those long training runs in the countryside you’ll have your name, an emergency contact and any known medical conditions just in case you should be struggling miles from home.
We recommend the plastic tags as a minimum as these can easily go on keys, on shoelaces or even on the ties on your shorts, but the new smoothbands and flatbands are also an excellent option. Why just stop with wearing them when you run? Wear these all the time, “just in case.”
It’ll be well worth it.
