Running on the trails is safer than road running...

Dearly beloved runners,

The following article on the BBC website highlights a common concern and certainly something we as runners should take heed of.

As those that follow Run Venture will know, we are avid trail runners here and this serves as more evidence of why you should all try it.

Certain members of society will always wolf whistle, hurl abuse, etc and make us feel uncomfortable, intimidated and perhaps even scared.

I myself have been spat at whilst running through a street on the outskirts of a city in the early hours. In hindsight going for a late night run at closing time on a Saturday night wasn't the best idea in the world and this just goes to enhance my point. I put myself in harm's way and increased my chance of being 'targeted' by individuals fuelled by pints of courage enhancer!
