Tips For Running In The Snow

🏃🏾Adjust your stride. A shorter stride will give you more control and may avoid pain/injury if you happen to slip.

👣 Consider improving your traction with shoes specifically made with a bit more traction- winterized versions of running shoes, “trail” shoes, or you can add a grip that slides over the sole of your existing running shoes.

🏙 Stick to routes you know well and with even surfaces. Paved roads (with the exception of notorious Chicago potholes) are easier to maneuver than bumpy trails when there’s a layer of snow covering the ground.

🧊 Don’t forget about ice, especially when the temperature drops soon after a rainfall- you can’t always see it until it’s too late!
