Promoted Post: PR Running Hosting Run Safer Clinics

This is a promoted post from Potomac River Running, which has nine DC-area locations, including one at Reston Town Center. 

An assault occurs at least once every two minutes. Recently we’ve heard of attacks on area trails as close to home as Sterling, Fairfax and Arlington. Whether you’re a runner or avid athlete, enjoy a walk in the park, or park to workout at the gym or pick up groceries at the store, you are at risk.

Being prepared could save your life, so =PR= has partnered with Asics to bring the RunSafer presentation to the DC area in September. You’ll learn valuable safety tips and ways to escape dangerous situations from Two-Time United States Olympic Distance Runner and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Todd Williams.

We invite you to bring your family, friends, and colleagues to attend any of the more than 10 FREE workshop sessions we’ve scheduled around the DC area between Sept. 11 and 14. Come dressed for activity and ready to learn self-defense techniques and safety awareness tips.

RSVP to the free workshop that works best with your schedule. Additional workshops may be added and will be posted on We look forward to running safer with you!
