We're a community of runners at Gone For a Run, and we spend countless hours on the road running. We have team members running in the NYC marathon this November, and we understand the dangers runners encounter while on the road.

Shorter days and earlier sunsets mean that many evening runners will now be running in the dark. Gone For a Run's IDmeBAND gives runners a convenient way to carry important emergency information with them while out on a run to ensure their safety in the event of an emergency. IDmeBANDs make it easy for emergency personnel to identify runners who have been injured and tells them exactly who to contact in an emergency situation.

Running in the dark poses a number of risks, and running alone at night makes the situation even more dangerous. It is difficult for motorists to see runners in the dark, increasing the chances of getting hit by car. Running alone in the dark also increases the risk of being attacked by a stranger. Despite the risks, many runners still choose to run in the evening, either out of personal preference or because it is the only time they can fit in a run. With the New York City Marathon coming up in November, runners all over are trying to stick to their training schedules, and often times after work is the only time to get a long run in.

"We're a community of runners at Gone For a Run, and we spend countless hours on the road running. We have team members running in the NYC marathon this November, and we understand the dangers runners encounter while on the road," said Ryan Lynn, Director of Marketing for Gone For a Run.

IDmeBANDs are customized to contain pertinent personal information and contact information. Each band contains an aluminum band that is engraved with the jogger’s runner's name, emergency contact number, allergy information, blood type and any other information they would like to include. They are the only running bands on the market that let customers engrave information on both sides of the metal plate, allowing customers to ensure that all of their necessary information is easily found by first responders in an emergency situation. Gone For a Run also offers LightGUIDE Led Light Bands, the brightest safety lights for running in the dark. When a runner combines wearing their IDmeBAND with their LightGUIDE LED running lights, they can have the peace of mind that they are ensuring their safety when running in low light conditions.

With the NYC marathon just around the corner, runners from all over are making sure they get their training runs in, even if it means running at night. Gone For a Run's IDmeBAND gives these runners and their family members peace of mind while they're out running in the dark.
