1, If running on the sidewalk or multi-use trails, travel on the right and pass on the left.
2. Never run more than two abreast if you are running in a group.
3. Don't run down the middle of the road or trail
4. Alert pedestrians when you are passing them - don't assume they aware of their surroundings. A simple "on your left" warning will suffice.
5. Be alert on blind curves.
6. Stop at stop signs and ensure oncoming traffic yields to you before proceeding across a road. Don't assume cars will stop if you are entering a cross walk.
7. If you are running an out-and-back route, don't just make a sudden U-turn at your turn around point. Stop, step to the right to allow oncoming traffic the opportunity to pass. Ensure the road or trail is clear of oncoming traffic (runners, cyclists, in-line skaters, etc.) then make your U-tur n. Making a sudden U-turn without looking over your shoulder is a good way to get hit.
8. Don't litter. If you can't find a trash can, carry your trash home.
