Safety tips

I never used to be concerned with running safety until a few years back when I moved. I was suddenly in an unfamiliar neighborhood, with unfamiliar streets and unfamiliar people on those streets. I had never experienced the slightest hesitation going for a run in the dark in my old neighborhood, but suddenly I wasn’t so sure.

That’s why I’m offering the following running safety running tips. These should be considered by anyone running alone – women or men! We all know how great it is to get outdoors for a jog, but keep your safety in mind first and foremost.

  • Try to solicit a running partner – especially if you like to run in the dark, at dusk or at twilight.
  • Always tell someone at home where you’re running and when you’ll be back.
  • Carry your I.D. and some change for an emergency phone call.
  • Carry a noisemaker with you, such as a whistle, a personal security alarm, etc.
  • When running alone, refrain from wearing earphones.
  • Avoid lonely trails and unlit areas at night and twilight / dusk.
  • Never run the same route.
  • Always stay alert in your environment – which means don’t wear your iPod! Note who is around you, and stare people in the face as they come towards you.
  • Run near public sites that are bustling with some type of activity. Stay away from parked cars, bushes and dark alleys – remember there is safety in numbers.

he Swan Lake Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, and 5.3 mile run web site! We are glad that you are interested in this race. Here you will find information that will help you plan for this event. The Swan Lake Marathon and shorter races are held in cooperation with Swan Lake Christian Camp. After expenses all the proceeds from the Swan Lake Marathon and other races go towards Swan Lake Christian Camp's general fund. Donations can also be made towards camper scholarships. Not all children can afford coming to camp and Swan Lake will never turn someone away. The parents are told to pay what they can and the monies from camper scholarships cover the difference in cost.We want this to be a family friendly marathon so there are a few things that cater to this. The pasta meal on Saturday is affordable and the Sunday noon meal is a free will donation for participants, families. There will also be activities and events that the families of participants can enjoy during the race or afterwards including frisbee golf, swimming, canoeing etc. We want to honor God this weekend and feel free to give us suggestions as to how we can make it better

Fast forward six years into this incredibly successful event. Are we still a cow town? Should the event abandon this identity, or worse, the cows themselves? Doesn't matter. In 2010, the event was once again renamed. Fort Worth, Texas Cowtown Marathon officials notified the event that they owned the service mark rights to the name"Cowtown" and, therefore, wanted exclusive rights to it. After a nationwide renaming contest, The Urban Cow Half Marathon was born. There is no longer a marathon offered and the event now includes a half marathon, two-person half marathon relay, and 5k run/walk. We expect over 6,000 participants for this year's edition presented by the Buzz Oates Group of Companies and Clark's Corner
